CLIMATE RIDE TEAM BIKESONOMA, 150 OTHER RIDERS ROLL ON SUNDAY, 10/2TEAM HAS RAISED MORE THAN $20K, LOOKS FORWARD TO5-DAY, 320 MILE RIDE FROM FORTUNA TO SAN FRANCISCO
SONOMA COUNTY, CA – They roll out in just three days – on Sunday, October 2nd – and already members of Climate Ride Team BikeSonoma have raised more than $20,000; they’re looking forward to a 320-mile bike ride from Fortuna to San Francisco. The team’s beneficiary is Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition (BikeSonoma).
The Climate Ride is a national event founded to inspire and empower citizens to work toward a new energy future. It is the only fundraiser ride benefitting organizations that work to protect the climate and promote bicycling. About 150 riders are expected to participate.
Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition, a non-profit organization promoting bicycling for transportation and recreation, was approved as a Climate Ride beneficiary in August. The organization’s Outreach Director, Sandra Lupien, signed on as team captain and began recruiting. Her friend and neighbor, Andy Bunnell of Graton, was already signed up for the ride, and he quickly joined Team BikeSonoma. Bunnell and Lupien found many people were inspired by the Climate Ride message and were interested in joining the team. Some couldn’t get the time off work; others were intimidated by the fundraising requirement ($2,400 per rider). “But,” says Lupien, “we ended up with the perfect group!”
Ellen Bauer of Graton, Jane Kurtz of Graton, and Vicki Duggan of Santa Rosa round out Team BikeSonoma. “Each team member is super-committed and inspiring. We’re training together. Everyone’s surpassed their fundraising minimum – and more importantly, their own expectations of themselves as fundraisers. I’m so grateful for Andy, Ellen, Jane, and Vicki; I can’t wait to ride together next week.”
Duggan, BikeSonoma’s Board Secretary understands the importance of fundraising opportunities like Climate Ride. “As a long time board member -- I’m in my 7th term -- I know how much SCBC does with little money. I also know that most of our annual budget is restricted to specific programs and events. The Climate Ride will help us do other things we're interested in, like starting a series of family friendly bike rides.”
Team BikeSonoma’s Ellen Bauer says the decision to sign up for the ride has been “a win-win situation.”
“Training for the Climate Ride,” says Bauer, “has motivated me to bike to work a few days a week (Graton to downtown Santa Rosa) and to explore some of the beautiful back roads of Sonoma County. In addition to reducing congestion on the roads, I feel better, have lost weight, and have saved quite a bit on gas. My days on the bike are always my favorite."
Jane Kurtz, a lifelong cyclist and athlete, says she chose the Climate Ride because, “It’s the fundraising ride that really makes the most sense to me in these challenging times our planet faces.” Kurtz says she hopes her participation in the ride will help folks, “take the climate crisis a little more seriously (if they don’t already) and I would love to see them get more involved with cycling for recreation, commuting and supporting their local bicycle coalition.”
Team BikeSonoma and the rest of the Climate Riders roll into Sonoma County on Tuesday, October 4th, and will camp overnight in Duncans Mills. They’ll continue on to Marin County the next morning, first stopping for lunch at Rangle Ranch Park in Sebastopol.
Reporters are encouraged to ride part of the Sonoma County leg of the Climate Ride. Contact Sandra Lupien at 707-694-8702 by 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 1 to make arrangements. After that date, send her a text message at that number. Please see the attached media advisory for specific information.
