Various activities and events the Ecocycling is involved with throughout the year.

Welcome to ecocycling!

bikefoodEcocycling was brought to life in 2007 with the goal of increasing awareness about current environmental issues through grassroots activities such as our educational forums, Ecocycling team, beautification projects, recycling-trash clean up programs and more! Our teams are often out working to create a lifestyle that encompass the core values of naturalists and environmentalists while cultivating non- bureaucratic procedures to accomplish our goals. We encourage you to delve deep, learn about our organization and hopefully become involved with our programs by being a regular supporter.

OUR STORY
The  Ecocycling team which helps to grow and spread awareness regarding the environmental issues facing us as individuals, families, and communities. Our riders keep an ear to the street and make sure our voices are heard by maintaining a direct involvement in the community. Since we’re often not in a hurry but would rather develop relationships with those we meet, we have often been called the “Turtles of Racing” because to us it is not how fast you get to the finish but what you have accomplished along the way!

Our educational forums and conferences help to bring groups together in order to move towards a more sustainable future through the sharing of information, resources, and abilities. Our involvement in “greening” the landscape is taken to the next level with numerous beautification programs. From simply planting a single tree to creating urban and rooftop gardens we help to transition developed and often cold looking city scapes to a blanket of lush and living greenery. When we are not planting for the future you may find us cleaning up the trash and waste left behind by others though our recycling and pedal up to clean-up programs.

At Ecocycling we not only offer hands on learning & volunteer projects but we also have important sustainable programs to keep you actively engaged and involved in the process. Ecocycling provides people with the tools and knowledge to make a difference in our environment.

Pedalathon

Step 1: Register to Ride

Reserve your ticket to ride on the earthday event and fundraise for the charity or non-profit organization of your choice. Remember you don’t have to ride all day just as long as you would like within the 24 hour period.

Step 2: Download Pledge Card

Talk to your family, friends and others about them sponsoring you for each mile you ride on the Norfolk Bike Loop.  Every mile can mean contributions to your charity organization. Sponsors can also choose a “flat amount” to give.

Step 3: Learn the Route

Get familiar with where you’re going before you ride by saving, downloading and even pre-riding the route in advance. Several documents/links are also saved on the map for your convenience.

Step 4: Invite & Share

Be sure to tell the world about what you’re doing and why! Send emails, phone your friends, share on social media shout it out from the New Jordan bridge…whatever you do make it known.
