The climate ride organizers did a superb job of planning and executing our ride in and around glacier national Park. It was not only one of the great adventures in my life but also something that made me feel helpful to others.

The opportunity afforded by the Climate Ride scholarship to local cycling organizations around the country can be life-changing. As someone who has never participated in a multi-day ride, let alone had the experience to fundraising thousands of dollars, it was a way for me to experience something truly perspective changing that I would have otherwise not had the chance to. The amount I did raise completely flabbergasted me. Folks I would have never thought would donate were the first ones to do so with eagerness and their full support. Even before the ride proper, I saw what good resonates from our community when we want to put it out there to the world that we want to help make it better and need their support. In an effort to capture the experience concisely, for me Climate Ride NorCal was a flurry of epic scenery and riding, coupled with meeting some of the most passionate and unforgettable people I have met through cycling. Through the support of the Climate Ride Scholarship, I was able to be a part of something so much greater than anything I had ever done before in cycling. The good work they do is profound and exemplary. As someone who has felt their support firsthand, I strongly urge you to continue to support Climate Ride during their Annual Fund Campaign.

Climate Ride was an experience of a lifetime, bringing together like-minded individuals who care about improving and creating a positive change for our environment, sustainability, and bicycle advocacy in our communities. It was a privilege to hear different speakers talk about their ideas on what we could do as individuals for a better tomorrow. Climate Ride has created a supportive and uplifting community that pushed me to new heights in cycling. No matter how many obstacles presented themselves on the ride and in my personal life, I kept telling myself to keep my feet on the pedals and push forward till the end.

Biking for a cause is both the best way to see new parts of the country and be part of something larger than oneself. With climate change being one of the most pressing issues of our time, Climate Ride allows like-minded individuals to take part in an experience that benefits the cause, tests our limits, and promotes bicycle advocacy all in one. The people and organizations that benefit from Climate Ride are many and I am humbled to have been a part of it. I remain inspired by the people I rode with and all they are doing for the cause. My knowledge and resolve to combat climate change are better for having been a part of Climate Ride.

Climate Ride is guaranteed to exceed your expectations. You’re doing something good for the world, good for your body, good for your brain of course, and they over-deliver at every step along the way. What will stick with me are all the people involved. The folks who make it through the filter to find Climate Ride, fundraise, and show up, are special eggs.

I’ve enjoyed bike touring trips in the past, but Climate Ride stands out for its ability to attract groups of riders who see biking as more than a recreational activity. It was great to ride with people who see biking as a way to protect the environment and to share other ways that we all strive to fight climate change.

Climate Ride has shown me a new, innovative and environmentally friendly way to live my life. Participating in hikes and bike rides evokes incredible feelings of pride, care and joy; not just for the organization or your fellow participants, but also for the Earth and the nature we live in everyday. It’s because of my involvement in Climate Ride that I feel so passionately about protecting and conserving what the planet has given us.

Climate Ride is an incredibly fun and rewarding way to take action while learning from all of the amazing people who are part of it.

My Climate Ride experience was all I’d hoped for and more. I met wonderful people, pushed my physical limits, biked through amazing country, ate good, healthy food to my heart’s content (plus a few tasty beers) – all while fundraising for a sustainable future. Thank you so much to the Climate Ride team and staff for the wonderful adventure.
