Climate Ride route

Climate Ride begins in the heart of California’s Redwood forest near Eureka, traveling along the Avenue of the Giants. After the formidable, 1400-foot Leggett Hill climb, riders make a beautiful descent to the coastline. Much of the ride takes place along the coast, but there’s a detour inland through some of California’s wine country before riders cross the Golden Gate Bridge into San Francisco. Climate Ride California is a beautiful bike trip, but it’s also a journey made by people who are passionate about doing what it takes to maintain that beauty for future generations.

Melissa, Tom and Jennifer are looking forward to a scenic and challenging ride, as well as meeting people who share their commitment to the ideas of renewable energy and bicycles — the ultimate carbon-free form of transportation.

Check back for their updates during the ride October 2-6. Good luck climbing Leggett Hill, guys!

  • Harry Simmelink: I agree, but people need to understand that adding Solar to their home is an asset that will increase the actual value of their property if / when they choose to sell. With the environment the way it is going we are unable to ignore any product that offers free energy at no cost to both the buyer and more significantly the earth!
