On June 16th & 17th, over 300 riders participated in Climate Cycle’s 4th annual Ride to Recharge! Climate Cyclists pedaled along the Chicago lakefront with people of all skill levels and walks of life coming together to help our students and schools go green. Routes options ranged from 4-miles to 125-miles, with all routes ending in Grant Park for a momentous closing ceremony.
In our first three rides, a combined 1200 Climate Cyclists raised $250,000. Thanks to their efforts, Climate Cycle has awarded 13 schools with solar panel installations and seeded 15 additional environmental school projects to date.
This year’s ride has already raised over $65,000 with more donations still coming in.
All participants receive lunch, t-shirt, goody bag and qualify for other fun prizes. Click here to learn more about the 2012 Ride to Recharge.
