Climate Ride California will take place May 19-23, 2013.

The mission of Climate Ride is to inspire and empower citizens to work toward a new energy future. Climate Ride uses sport as a means to change lives and build an effective, citizen-based sustainability movement.

Climate Ride California begins near Eureka in the midst of Northern California's majestic redwoods. From there riders travel along the coast, soaking in expansive ocean views and coastal bluffs. On the fourth day, riders pedal inland along the Russian River to cruise through California's famed Wine Country, considered some of the best cycling in the US. The final day is an epic ride through Marin and across the Golden Gate Bridge to reach the final destination, San Francisco.
