Bring Your Message to Washington…By Bicycle!

image Brita Climate Ride will return for its fourth year this May 13-17, 2011, and will once again see hundreds of cyclists pedal beautiful country roads 300 miles from New York City to Washington, DC to raise awareness of renewable energy and the climate crisis. This “climate conference on wheels” and fully-supported adventure raises funds for a collection of nine hardworking non-profits including 350.org, Washington Area Bicyclist Coalition, Green America, Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, and 1Sky. Brita Climate Ride is the first multi-day, multi-city charitable bicycle ride to address climate change and renewable energy issues.  The event also endeavors to showcase the bicycle as the ultimate carbon-free machine and a viable form of transportation. Climate Ride will also return to California on October 2-6, 2011. This gorgeous 5-day, 320-mile ride along California's spectacular coast begins in the Redwood Empire near Eureka and finishes across the Golden Gate Bridge into San Francisco. Participants can currently register for either ride online at www.climateride.org.

Kennedy Krieger’s Annual Bike Ride and Nature Walk to Raise Funds for Autism Research

BALTIMORE, MD – Once again, adults and children of all ages will come together to break the silence surrounding autism and “ROAR” for the millions of children who cannot. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, the prevalence rate of autism, a complex, life-altering, developmental disorder, has risen to 1 in 110 children. In an effort to raise critically needed funds for autism research, Kennedy Krieger Institute will host the seventh annual ROAR for Autism on Sunday, May 1 at Oregon Ridge Park. Kennedy Krieger continues to be one of the nation’s leaders in autism research, striving to provide earlier diagnosis and a better understanding of how the disorder affects the brain to develop successful treatments.
ROAR for Autism will feature events and activities for everyone, including challenging 50- and 25- mile rides, a 10-mile ride for recreational bikers, a 5-mile ride designed for beginner cyclists, and a youth fun ride.  For those who prefer to stay on two feet, Oregon Ridge Nature Center will be leading guided nature walks. The popular Wegmans Wellness Village will be back once again featuring healthy food for all families including those with children on special autism diets. In addition to a bike ride, nature walk and great food, the family fun festival features carnival games, balloon animals and musical entertainment.
The online team fundraising component will continue this year; participants can go online to register, join a fundraising team, and to build a personal fundraising page to raise money from supporters. Additionally, “Snore for ROAR” is an option for those individuals who can’t get out of bed early but want to make their voices heard and “ROAR” for autism research. For more information about ROAR for Autism, or to register, visit www.ROAR.kennedykrieger.org or call 443-923-7300.
All participants can register either solo or as a team. Rest stops and bike repair services will be available along the bike routes.
