It’s time to register to be a WABA Climate Rider in 2014! This year, there are a few new Climate Ride offerings and routes. Perhaps they’ll tempt you into undertaking a long-distance charity ride fundraiser! Consider the possibility of pedaling through breathtaking scenery to raise awareness for climate change and raise money for WABA. Last year, WABA Climate Riders raised over $38,000 to support our organization’s advocacy efforts, which are spread throughout the Washington, D.C. area. Tackling the Climate Ride is a compelling way to keep WABA going. If you participate in the Climate Ride and choose WABA as your 100 percent beneficiary, you get a custom Team WABA 2014 jersey—and all the help we can offer you in planning training rides, sending fundraising emails, and arranging travel logicistics. The season kicks off with Climate Ride California (May 17-20); this is a new route through California wine country that ends in the state capital, Sacramento (Please note: This ride is now two-thirds full, so sign up ASAP!) The first-ever Climate Ride Midwest (Sept. 6-9) departs Grand Rapids for Chicago. And the classic New York City to D.C. Climate Ride (Sept. 20-25) is guaranteed to have a strong showing from Team WABA. You can sign up for any of these rides right now, but they are guaranteed to sell out! Before this post went up, the Climate Hike through Glacier National Park filled up. Get your Climate Ride spot today!
