Biking, Bicycle, Bike-a-thon

On May 15th, 2010, Climate Cycle will be hosting its annual Solar Schools Ride. For additional registration and ride information, click here.

Climate Cycle is a non-profit organization that empowers youth to become leaders of the clean energy movement by installing solar energy systems and funding sustainability education in local public schools. This is made possible by alliances between students, community organizations and concerned citizens to usher in the new green economy.

Climate Cycle creates local solutions to global pollution. At the inaugural bike-a-thon in May 2009, 350 participants raised $67,000 to install solar energy on four schools. Because more money is spent on utilities than textbooks and computers combined, the time to retool our schools is now.

The time to help the environment and our children is now. I urge you all to participate in and support Climate Cycle’s programs which will directly benefit our children, while furthering Mayor Daley’s goal of making Chicago the greenest city in America.

—U.S. Secretary of Education and former Chicago Public School CEO Arne Duncan
