Pedaling for Clean Energy and Climate
In case you have not heard, we’re pretty keen here on this earth thing. We’re a fairly active bunch too so when we hear about opportunities to get outside and enjoy this big blue marble AND show it some love in the process, we get downright excited. This September’s Climate Ride might be one of the best yet.
From Climate Ride founders Caeli Quinn and Geraldine Carter:
“The 2nd Annual Brita Climate Ride invites you to pedal your way to a new energy future! More than two hundred cyclists will join together from September 26 – 30th, 2009 to embark on a journey from New York City to the steps of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, DC. We’ll be making a powerful statement about the need for renewable energy and climate change awareness throughout this beautiful 300-mile bicycle ride.”
All that and it benefits amazing non-profit groups including Focus The Nation and Clean Air-Cool Planet, two organizations funded by 1% member businesses. Check out the Climate Ride website for all the important info as well as photos and videos from last year. Teams are encouraged and their is a limit on participants so sign up soon!
