California North Coast
On the California bike ride, you’ll experience epic cycling, amazing scenery, and dynamic speakers that all combine to make this charitable event exciting, informative, and fun. There are five days of bike riding and each one is a new adventure. You’ll cycle under towering redwoods along Humboldt’s Avenue of the Giants, climb the infamous Leggett Hill on your way to spend two full days on California’s rugged North Coast, including a stop at the historic Point Arena Lighthouse, then take a spin through verdant wine country vineyards on your way to the City by the Bay - San Francisco. Each evening, our speaker series will provide information, opinion, and discussion on topics such as renewable energy, climate science, and bicycle infrastructure.
Our professional Climate Ride volunteer staff takes care of all the details, so you can focus on riding your bike the 40-60 miles per day of carefully planned routes on scenic back roads. It’s challenging yet doable, and you have all day to make it to the next rest stop. Meals, snacks, bike support, luggage transport, and all of the logistics are included when you reach the fundraising commitment. On the road, the Climate Ride support team is always nearby to assist you, keep you happy and healthy, and make your ride worry-free and memorable.
