Independent Challenge (Boston to LA)
Completing my cross-country cycle trip, from Boston to LA, as part of a Climate Ride independent challenge, really shaped my ride in meaningful way. I had been wanting to do a cross-country ride for personal reasons, but being able to fundraise for causes that I care deeply about during my ride gave me, what felt […]

Glacier National Park Ride
My Glacier Ride counts as one of my top life experiences. I believe climate change is the foundation to address most social issues. The combination of physical exercise on a bike immersed in spectacular landscape and wildlife, along people who care about the environment is a recipe for personal growth, community building, and world change.

Participating in a Climate Ride in 2021 was exactly the respite and recharge I needed. The scenery, singletrack, and swimming holes were amazing. Getting to know fellow Climate Riders and hearing their stories and perspectives on solutions to our climate crisis was inspiring and empowering. I can’t wait to go again!

I work in the field of bicycle education and advocacy, and it might sound strange to take time off to go on a long bike ride while […]

Rogue River Hike
Hiking the Rogue River Trail was like stepping deep into the grandeur of nature, and with Climate Ride leading the way I trusted we would do no harm, taking only the experience, leaving only footprints – to paraphrase. Having the experience strengthened my commitment to supporting efforts to protect our treasured natural resources and confront […]

It was a pleasant surprise to be asked to consider applying for a Community Leader Award. Honestly I wasn’t sure if anyone would be up for it and nobody on our team of four had ever participated in an event like this. There are a lot of reasons why someone might decide against participating; doubts over […]

After participating in seven Climate Ride events (eight if you count Climate Rise!) I continue to be impressed with the Climate Ride staff as well as the community of riders–I couldn’t ask to be part of a kinder, more thoughtful, and incredibly fun group of people, all brought together by our desire to combine our […]

Being a Community Leader Awardee was an awesome experience. It allowed me to join a Climate Ride I wouldn’t have been able to and it gave me the opportunity to share my organization’s story with passionate people. I was able to present on the youth climate work I do for Action for the Climate Emergency (ACE) in front of […]

Climate Ride and the staff have had probably the most impact in my life in the last 10 years. I have been passionate about the environment since the 70s but Climate Ride has given me an outlet to do something. I am constantly wearing Climate Ride gear and talking to people about what a wonderful […]

For our organization, it’s funded getting various forms of straw building into the building code, and the Green Fondo funded our initiative to make it easier to insure buildings featuring straw for insulation.
