I first wrote about Climate Cycle’s upcoming Solar Ride for Schools here. I asked others to participate and now it’s time to walk my own talk. I am riding myself in the 10 miles course and I am looking for sponsors! By sponsoring me you are donating to Climate Cycle and your $5, $10, $20 or more donation will go to help provide solar panels for Chicago area schools. Climate Cycle also uses your donations to help raise awareness about environmental sustainability. I am happy to be able to participate and ride my bike along Lake Michigan with many other Climate Cycle Riders. It’s fitness with good purpose!
What is the Solar Schools Ride?
Climate Cycle’s May 15th, 2010 Solar Schools Ride is a family and fan friendly fundraiser in which riders garner pledges in advance of the ride. Proceeds go to install solar energy systems in local public schools.
Cyclists select from a 4, 10, 20 or 62-mile course along picturesque Lake Michigan. All starting and end points are in downtown Chicago, with the exception of the 62-mile “metric century” course, which begins at the Indiana Dunes and ends in downtown Chicago.
A post ride celebration follows the ride. This festive event includes music, free lunches for all riders, sustainability showcases, goody bags, a raffle and kid friendly activities.
Want to Help Out But Not Ride? Sponsor Me!
