The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition is proud to present the Climate Ride Community Leader Scholarship. This scholarship recognizes individuals promoting transportation justice, practicing climate change advocacy, and creating change via the bicycle by providing an opportunity to participate in Climate Ride California as a member of the SF Bicycle Coalition Climate Ride Team.
The California North Coast Ride is an epic five-day bicycle journey with 120 people united by their passion for sustainability and renewable energy. Camp each night and listen to inspirational talks from climate change activists. Climate Ride Community Leaders may also choose to address attendees themselves.
This is a fully supported ride: planned route, meals provided, luggage is transported each day, plus, plenty of mechanical and moral support is available! And the SF Bicycle Coalition is offering scholarship recipients support beforehand too, including training resources and rides, and assistance securing the necessary equipment, from a road bike to camping gear.
The ride starts on May 20, with a May 19 pre-ride shuttle between San Francisco and Fortuna free available to scholarship recipients. The ride itself is between 292 and 327 through giant redwoods, wine country and beautiful coastline, with different mileage options available each day. Complete ride details are available here.
Fill out the form linked below and submit no later than 10:00 pm PST on Sunday, Feb. 25. People of color, people who identify as women, trans*, femme, non-binary and people who would not be able to participate in this event without fundraising assistance are strongly encouraged to apply.
