Climate Ride 2008 New York to Washington

Join Climate Ride 2008
September 20th - 24th
New York to D.C.
www.ClimateRide.org

Join Climate Ride 2008 for the first multi-day supported bicycle tour where you pedal to raise money and awareness for action on global warming. Climate Riders will cycle 320 miles in five days from New York to Washington D.C., following scenic country roads and finishing on the steps of our nation's capitol, where we will make a statement about our country's need for action.

Along the way, expert speakers will educate and inspire Climate Riders and local communities about the science, the policies and the solutions to global warming. Our riders and the communities we pass through will learn how our government, businesses, and all Americans will benefit from a cleaner, healthier climate. This is a unique event--a fundraiser and climate conference on wheels, and an opportunity to meet people who are engaged in making a difference.

Each rider will be responsible for raising $2,250. Proceeds from the ride benefit Clean Air - Cool Planet and Focus the Nation, two organizations that lead the way in expanding climate change education, encouraging renewable energy policies, and promoting solutions to global warming.

The five-day ride will be entirely supported. All you have do to is bike; we take care of the rest.

Registration begins online April 15 th at www.climateride.org and is limited to 100 riders.

Get your friends together and register today!

Supported?!?!?!

Come on! What hypocrisy! A bike ride for climate change and the riders have to followed by a bunch of CO2 spewing cars! What the hell is the purpose? This type of BS only perpetuates that bikes aren't real transportation and that cars are since you need one to follow you around in case anything goes wrong.

And beginners can do an unsupported tour. I've lead several of them where people who never a bike rode more than 10 miles ended up riding over 100 miles in a weekend carrying all there own gear, including tents and sleeping bags.

If these guys were for real they would have done it unsupported, using mass transit for the return trip.
