Climate Ride announced today a new partnership with the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition for Climate Ride California 2010 this September 21-25. The agreement includes joint promotion and the formation of Team San Francisco Bicycle Coalition during this year’s event, resulting in a portion of funds raised by team members going directly to support bicycle advocacy projects at the Coalition.
“One of Climate Ride’s goals is to showcase the bicycle as one of the most powerful solutions to the climate crisis,” said Caeli Quinn, Co-Founder and Director of Climate Ride. “So partnering with the SF Bicycle Coalition is a natural fit. We fully support their mission of promoting the bicycle for everyday transportation. If our Climate Riders can pedal 300 miles in 5 days for the climate, then many more people can forgo their carbon-based transportation and ride a bike to work each day.”
