This event is an opportunity for the community to meet members of Team GGRBC, a diverse group of cyclists participating in the first-ever Climate Ride Midwest. The 300-mile ride leaves from Grand Rapids on Sept. 6 and concludes in Chicago on Sept. 9. Each rider must raise $2,800 to participate in the ride. A majority of the money raised by each member of Team GGRBC will go directly to GGRBC's Room to Ride campaign to place 100 miles of on-street bike lanes in the greater metro area by 2015. Money generated during the July 21 fundraising event will be used to help each team member to reach his or her financial commitment to participate in the ride. This high-profile ride is a great opportunity to raise money for local community improvements, but also to raise GGRBC's profile and outreach.
$1 for every beer purchased from 6pm-close on 7/21 will go to the team to help them reach their minimum goal!
