Ride to Washington

Pushing the pedals on a regular basis is a great start, but if you really want to step up your game during National Bike Month, you'll have to make your voice heard, too. Start with these ideas.

The Climate Ride is a five-day, 300-mile ride from New York City to Washington, D.C. The next east coast ride starts September 21 (if you don't need training, the next California edition -- Redwoods to San Francisco -- starts May 19). The only competitive part of this ride comes in vying against your pals to raise the most money for the cause. Funds are put toward renewable energy projects, and putting a spotlight on the need for bike-friendly roads and transportation options.
