Climate Ride California 2014 is the nation’s largest cycling event dedicated to active transportation and sustainability, taking place May 17-20, 2014 from San Francisco to the California State Capitol in Sacramento, and we want you to be a part of it!
Climate Ride is an exciting cycling adventure that 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.

You can support WALKSacramento – and other sustainability nonprofits – by riding or supporting Climate Ride California 2014.
On this year’s California ride, you’ll experience epic biking, amazing scenery, and dynamic speakers that all combine to make this charitable event exciting, informative, and fun. You’ll pedal from San Francisco – across the Golden Gate Bridge and along California’s scenic Marin coast. Then, turning east at Point Reyes Station, you’ll ride past quaint dairy farms and through historic Petaluma to the first camp of the trip. The next two days are spent pedaling through the verdant vineyards of California’s classic Wine Country growing regions – Russian River Valley, Dry Creek, Alexander Valley and eventually into the famed Napa Valley, where you’ll spend a whole day on the Silverado Trail. That night you’ll camp in the rolling hills above Napa at an out-of-the-way campground with panoramic views. Then, it’s up and over the final hill and across the flat Central Valley to Sacramento where we’ll make our voices heard at a speaking event in front of the iconic Capitol building.
The Climate Ride staff takes care of all the details, so you can focus on riding the 30-60 miles per day of carefully planned routes on scenic back roads. It’s challenging yet doable, and you have all day to make it to the next rest stop. Meals, snacks, bike support, luggage transport, and all of the logistics are included when you reach your fundraising minimum. On the road, the Climate Ride support team is always nearby to assist you, keep you happy and healthy, and make your ride worry-free and memorable.
Why support WALKSacramento? WALKSacramento is a nonprofit organization working to create walkable communities throughout the Sacramento region. Your participation in the Climate Ride, whether by riding or donating, ensures we maintain a strong independent voice advocating for walkable neighborhoods.
