Pedal Power for Solar Power


We love a good adventure, especially for a good cause – so we’re excited to announce that we are one of Climate Ride’s newest beneficiaries, and we’re looking for intrepid cyclists to join us!

Climate Ride is the nation’s largest cycling event raising support for organizations dedicated to climate change issues, renewable energy and sustainability. Amazing riding, epic scenery, and great speakers all combine to make this a remarkable experience. And the best part? When you ride for Vote Solar your fundraising directly supports our work to power the country with clean, homegrown solar energy!

You can ride for Vote Solar in any of Climate Ride’s 4 events across the country this year. But the soonest one in May – a California wine country trek from San Francisco to Sacramento – is filling up fast. Other rides include NYC to DC and Grand Rapids to Chicago (both in September) and there’s even a hike in Glacier National Park if that’s more your thing.

Register for Climate Ride today and use your pedal power for solar power!
