About Bike Down 2015

SAVE THE DATE! BIKE DOWN 2015 will be September 18-20th! The deadline to apply is June 1st. Request your application by e-mailing bikedown@cyclesofchange.org today!

We will have our third annual Bike Down bike trek this summer from September 18-20th. Location is Lake Tahoe.

In 2013, 24 Bike Down riders spent three days building community, exploring the California coast, whale watching, eating delicious meals, visiting organic farms, and connecting with allies at bike projects like the Watsonville Bike Shack. Along the way, they raised over $15,000 for Cycles of Change – money that went directly to support Cycles of Change programs to get youth and adults in the East Bay on bikes.

As one participant said, “by the end of the ride, I knew that I’d remember this experience for a lifetime”. Another called it “…one of the best ways imaginable to spend a weekend!”

In 2014, bike down was even more epic with Bikes and Boats from Bay to Bay. We biked through the back roads of Marin County, kayaked across Tomales Bay, and camped next to shimmering watering for the longest night of the year. In Bike Down 2014 we were building – building community with Cycles supporters, staff, and volunteers; building the grassroots movement to support the next generation of youth leaders; and building the capacity of Cycles of Change to provide bike education and resources to more people each year.

You can see last year’s amazing riders on our razoo page. Also check out the Ride Photos!
