Your camaraderie and support moved me even more than the stunning views of Death Valley. As this was my first ride with a group, I really didn’t know what to expect. I was concerned that my slow pace would annoy others, and that I would feel ostracized.

Instead, your authentic camaraderie and support was an incredible relief to me. Indeed, it moved me even more than the stunning views of Death Valley. Now I find myself looking affectionately at our group picture and missing each of you terribly! Woa! What an incredible experience!

I’m sure that the support I’ve gotten from you and others has helped me fight cancer and enjoy life in a profound way. This connection is the coolest thing of all.

I commend the organizers on a quality ride. I genuinely enjoyed it. I’ve never been on a multi-day ride and I felt right at home, completely supported, and enjoyed every minute. Incredible support. Great meals. Good itinerary. Excellent guides. And my god, the lemon cake.

We went to the hottest place on earth and found cold. We went to the driest place in North America and found rain. One of us was diagnosed with a terminal illness, and he was the most alive. The inclines brought us down and the descents brought us back up. We came seeking Death Valley, and pure unadulterated life was all we found.

It was fantastic! My favorite ride yet. Amazing scenery, beautiful and challenging rides, and a really fun, eclectic group of riders.

The 2017 efforts of this small but passionate and powerful group raised over $765,000 that were distributed in grants to beneficiaries. It’s often difficult to see any impact on the world from our individual efforts. I support Climate Ride because my and my donors’ efforts don’t disappear into the ether. When I return to Glacier NP in the coming years and see solar panels at Apgar VC, I will take pride in that. And I will be thankful and proud of all of you that helped.

Climate Ride Nova Scotia was absolutely incredible! The views were spectacular, the food was amazing. 

Ever since my first Climate Ride, Bar Harbor to Boston, I’ve been hooked and come back annually. I feel like I finally found my charity ride that gives me a purpose. The organization is always flawless (and the organizers are wonderful people), my fellow riders are like-minded and motivated, and you can raise money for your own local cause (CommonWheels in Boston). And to achieve all of this while doing my favorite thing, riding a bike! It’s the best experience possible!

With amazing riding and scenery and the wonderful people you meet sharing the experience, Climate Ride is the most inspiring way to recharge your batteries.

Loved it! The route was gorgeous. The staff was outstanding. The weather was perfect. It was a wonderful way for me to ease back onto my bike.

The six Climate Ride events that I have completed I consider to be among my proudest achievements as someone who loves the planet, who loves to give back, and who loves to cycle and hike. If you want to hit this awesome love trifecta, too, then sign up today!!

I’ve had the honor of participating in four Climate Rides so far and the experience gets better and more impactful each time. The ride itself is the gold standard – flawlessly and painstakingly planned – with some of the best views and trails I have ever seen. The fundraising is never as hard and daunting as I think it’s going to be as friends and new friends are eager to support this important cause. But most importantly, it’s about the people I have met – from the stellar and accomplished crew to the riders who are all doing real things to help the planet be a better place. I always come back feeling better about humanity and the world.

Pure inspiration!

One of my favorite traveling adventures of all time. Great people, incredible scenery and challenging biking. I loved the educational aspects as well. The different speakers and stakeholders: rangers, conservancy, Jeff Mow, Black Feet, etc. I felt like our efforts will make a positive impact with the park. I can’t wait to sign up for another one!
