Take action and register now for the inaugural Climate Ride Northeast – Bar Harbor to Boston to raise money and awareness for regional and national nonprofits that work to create a more green and sustainable future. Use your bicycle as a vehicle to create change!
Set for Sept. 17 through Sept. 21, the five-day charitable bike-a-thon will take participants 320 miles down the scenic coast of New England to support more than 100 sustainability, cycling advocacy, active transportation and environmental causes. Climate Riders have the ability to direct the funds they raise to up to five beneficiaries of their choice. The event goal is to raise $400,000.
Climate Ride Northeast –Bar Harbor to Boston is a fully supported bike-a-thon that provides meals, snacks, bike support, luggage transport, and lodging for participants along the route. On the road, the Climate Ride support team will assist riders to each day’s final destination, exploring the beautiful national parks and the outdoors they are helping to protect along the way. At night, business, policy, public health, and environment experts will engage in conversations with riders. “Ignite Nights,” a networking opportunity with representatives from some of Climate Ride’s 2015 beneficiaries, will be available to riders this year.
Climate Ride is the first adventure travel nonprofit to raise funds for environmental causes and awareness about the importance of bike advocacy and active transportation that will dramatically reduce the carbon emissions that plague the environment. To date, Climate Ride has raised and contributed $2.28 million.
