Join Team Green America on the Climate Ride!

Join our team this September for Climate Ride NYC-DC, an unbeatable cycling adventure along the east coast. Support bike advocacy and organizations working towards a sustainable future.

Climate Ride NYC-DC is a full-supported five-day charitable ride from Sept. 21-25, connecting two of the nation’s most important cities – New York and Washington, DC – by bicycle.

From the exciting departure by ferry in Manhattan to the hero’s welcome and rally at the steps of the US Capitol, the east-coast version of Climate Ride is more than a bike trip – it’s an inspiring journey with 150 like-minded people who are united by their passion for sustainability, renewable energy, and bicycles - the ultimate carbon-free form of transportation.

Green America is forming a team of riders for Climate Ride, to promote our Clean Energy Victory Bonds legislation and fund our innovative climate protection programs. Register for the ride today at ClimateRide.org!

Previous team members include Sharon Rowe, CEO and Founder of ECOBAGS, Bernard Brennan, President of Green America’s Board, Amy Hall, Social Consciousness Director of Eileen Fisher, and Rob Hanson, Green America’s Advertising Manager and resident cycling enthusiast.

On the NYC-DC ride, you’ll spend five days cycling through 300 miles of rich green countryside and historic towns. Evening programs and dynamic speakers combine with world-class riding to make this event exciting, informative, and fun.

Climate Ride takes care of all the details, so you can focus on riding the 45-70 miles per day of carefully planned routes on back roads that meander through the countryside. The Climate Ride support team is always nearby to assist you, keep you happy and healthy, and make your ride worry-free and memorable. Register for the ride today.
