Green For All is delighted to be a beneficiary of the 2012 Climate Ride!The East Coast Climate Ride will travel from NYC to DC, May 19-23, 2012 and the West Coast Climate Ride will span the California Coast, September 9-13, 2012.
Climate Ride is a non-profit organization that organizes charitable bike rides to support sustainable solutions, bike advocacy and environmental causes. There are two rides to choose from if you would like to join Green For All:Climate Ride NYC-DC or Climate Ride California. Climate Riders register for $75 and then fundraise a minimum of $2400 in order to participate in one of the all-inclusive 5-day events.
The NYC-DC ride begins with a pedal through the heart of Manhattan to a ferry that will carry everyone off the island and across New York Harbor. From there the route travels along country roads passing through Princeton, crossing the Susquehanna River, and into Pennsylvania Amish Country. After a day of pedaling past farms and silos in Amish Country, the riders will reach Maryland horse country. On the fifth day, riders cycle past the iconic Washington Monument to arrive at the U.S. Capitol. A highlight of the ride is that Climate Ride arranges appointments for every rider to personally meet with her/his Congressional representative. It makes a big impression to pedal 300 miles to meet your senator.
Less than 15 spots remain on the NYC – DC Climate Ride! To join Team Green For All now visit:ClimateRide.org and choose “Register” to get started. Remember to select Green For All as your beneficiary! Don’t want to ride? Make a tax-deductible donation to Team Green For All by clicking here:
