Bikes, BBQ, & beer: Vote Solar does Climate Ride
This September, Vote Solar will be strapping on our helmets and hitting the open road for Climate Ride. This 5-day charity bike ride from NYC to DC will help us raise needed funds and awareness for solar energy solutions.

Help us reach our team fundraising goal, learn more about Climate Ride, and kick back with local solar advocates while enjoying a day of leisurely bike rides, BBQ and beer!

Here's the plan:

10am: Meet at the "Fern" picnic site in Tilden Regional Park to depart on a guided group bike ride - we'll have options for both beginners and the more experienced*
12pm: Meet back at the picnic site to stuff our bellies full of BBQ and beer!

*Not a biker? That's ok! Please join us for the picnic portion of the party.

Each of the 8 members (and counting!) of Team Vote Solar will ride a whopping 300 miles during Climate Ride. Please help us cover those miles and more with a suggested donation of $25. RSVP here, but please make your donation before the event at our team fundraising page (or if you can't make it but still want to support us): http://bike.climateride.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.participant&participantID=2976

While any size donation is great appreciated, we're also upping the stakes with Vote Solar swag (with our shiny new logo!) for superstar supporters:
Donate $250 and receive a Vote Solar bike jersey
Donate $100 and receive a Vote Solar t-shirt

Your dollars will help us raise solar awareness and directly fund Vote Solar's advocacy work. And earn our deep appreciation for your kindness.

Happy riding!

P.S. Another way to support us is to join our team! Vote Solar staffers Adam, Ashley, Rosalind, and Susannah will be present to let you know more about Climate Ride and how you can join.

P.P.S. Please RSVP here so we know how much food to get, and make your suggested donation of $25 or more on our team fundraising page: http://bike.climateride.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.participant&participantID=2976
