Participating in the Climate Ride was the perfect way to educate and immerse myself deeper into current environmental issues. On this ride I was surrounded by an incredible group of supportive and inspirational people – participants and staff alike. The community paired with challenging, but rewarding climbs and views made for a life-changing and memorable experience. 10/10 would recommend to everyone I know!

CLIMATE RIDE has been the single most effective way for my friends & I to get involved & step up awareness & advocacy about climate change. It has really helped to change & align priorities. Additionally, by cheering me on through the ride and my daily posts, folks felt positively inspired that their contributions mattered.
As a newcomer to cycling, CLIMATE RIDE was a wonderful activity that helped me succeed. Extremely well organized we had great food, campgrounds, friendly bike mechanics, phone charging stations, & water & snack breaks in the most beautiful settings. Each day brought new spectacular sights including strawberry fields, deer, sea lions, hawks, meadows of wildflowers and redwood, crashing waves and horizons that stretched forever.

Not just an event that yielded $350k+ in donations for climate action and active transportation. This was also the best vacation of my year, giving me some of the most memorable rides of California that I have done, inspiration from the great people around me and a super professional organization end-to-end, including excellent meals and logistics.

Phenomenal! Climate Ride is a tremendously professional, organized and competent organization (and personable, easy-going, and inspiring). That’s all the more impressive given how small it is – a few visionary, exceedingly capable, and engaging people, who have earned the respect of partners large and small, who make this an outstanding experience in every way. The scenery is breathtaking, and I particularly appreciated being in a smaller national park (i.e., not yet overrun by tourists). The cause was kept front and center in such meaningful, personal, and impactful ways. Glacier Guides are real pros, inspiring environmentalists and educators, and took care of our needs so wonderfully! And the evening speakers absolutely made this experience as unique and profound as it was – definitely a highlight in a trip FILLED with powerful elements.

The camaraderie and support on Climate Ride allowed me to perform better than I thought possible. I feel emboldened by my achievement to continue to train & discuss my achievement & climate causes with others in order to inspire & contribute.

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.
