Support Center for Resource Solutions on Climate Ride California 2011
(3BL Media / theCSRfeed) August 16, 2011 - How can you enjoy an incredible 5-day bicycle ride in Northern California while supporting CRS? Climate Ride—the nation's largest environmental cycling event—has accepted CRS as a beneficiary for this year's California ride, which runs from October 2–6 and travels from Eureka to San Francisco. The exciting part for CRS is that anyone who signs up for the ride is able to choose to raise money for CRS and support our work to advance sustainable energy. We've chosen to represent CRS's team as "Team Buy Clean Energy" after our ongoing campaign to promote clean energy purchases among individuals and businesses at www.buycleanenergy.org.
Here's how it works. First register (see the Register Now link below), picking CRS as your beneficiary organization. After you complete registration, you'll need to find sponsors that will help you reach the fundraising minimum (or more!)—and of course you'll need to train for the ride. Climate Ride is not only considered the premiere green event in the country, but it's known for amazing riding, epic scenery, and great speakers that all combine to make this a remarkable experience.
Climate Ride is a 5-day, fully supported bicycle ride from Fortuna (near Eureka) to San Francisco under towering redwoods, through the Russian River Wine Country, and along the Pacific Coast Bicycle Route—one of the most scenic coastlines in the world. Climate Ride also features nightly speakers who focus on bicycle advocacy, sustainability, and renewable energy. Find out more at www.climateride.org.
