In May 2020, TransForm staff, alumni, and friends will cycle the incredible North Coast of California with Climate Ride. Interested in joining us? We recommend signing up by early March, as the ride is filling up!
The ride: This supported charitable cycling tour along California's North Coast begins in California’s historic Redwood Empire near Eureka, travels along the scenic coast, and ventures into the famed Russian River Valley before crossing the Golden Gate Bridge into San Francisco. This is more than a bike trip – it’s an inspiring journey with like-minded people who are united by their passion for sustainability, renewable energy, and bicycles – the ultimate carbon-free form of transportation. We'll be riding along with other teams benefiting great organizations like Bike East Bay, the SF Bike Coalition, the Silicon Valley Bike Coalition, Climate One, GRID Alternatives, Vote Solar, and many others.
Our team: Check out the roster for TransForm's Carbon Crushers, including TransForm staff, alumni, and friends. Our team captain is Hayley Currier, TransForm's Policy Advocacy Manager. There's always room for more, until the whole ride fills up! (As of February 11 there were only 27 spots left.) We'll be going on training rides together in preparation for the big event, and helping each other with fundraising.
Fundraising: Climate Ride participants commit to raising at least $3,000, which goes to one or more qualified beneficiaries for their ride... that's TransForm! Climate Ride also receives a portion of funds raised to continue their great work. Climate Ride, TransForm, and your teammates will provide plenty of support for your fundraising effort — it is totally doable, and if you're at all uncomfortable with asking for money this is a great way to hone that important skill. Check out Climate Ride's tips for how to meet your fundraising goals.
We recorded an info session last year for potential participants with Climate Ride staff and several members of the Carbon Crushers team. Watch or listen to the call here to learn more about this opportunity (start about 6 mins 45 seconds in). If you have any questions, contact Team Captain Hayley Currer at hcurrier@transformca dot org.
