Charities


Cycle the Sierra will ride for a different non-profit organization each day of the ride. These groups are run by hardworking folks committed to conservation, outdoor recreation, community outreach and other shared values that align with those of Cycle the Sierra. Our charity partners will receive a monetary donation that will come  from rider registration fees. If you wish to learn more about our partners, they will be joining us in our Base Camps so you can do just that!

1% FOR THE PLANET exists to build and support an alliance of businesses financially committed to creating a healthy planet. It’s about businesses recognizing that industry and ecology are inherently connected. It’s about realizing the positive effects of connecting businesses, consumers and nonprofits through philanthropy. And it’s about understanding that the true cost of doing business can be mitigated by a simple pledge to the planet.

THE LEAGUE TO SAVE LAKE TAHOE  is Tahoe’s oldest and largest nonprofit environmental advocacy organization. The League is dedicated to protecting, restoring, and advocating for the ecosystem health and scenic beauty of the Lake Tahoe Basin. The organization focuses on water quality and its clarity for the preservation of a pristine Lake for future generations.

SYRCL (pronounced “circle”) is the leading voice for the protection and restoration of the Yuba River and the Greater Yuba Watershed. Founded in 1983 through a rural, grassroots campaign to defend the South Yuba River from proposed hydropower dams, SYRCL has developed into a vibrant community organization with over 3,500 members and volunteers based in Nevada City, CA. We are the leading regional advocates for creating resilient human and natural communities throughout the greater Yuba River basin by restoring creeks & rivers, regenerating wild salmon populations, and inspiring & organizing people—from the Yuba’s source to the sea—to join in our movement for a more wild & scenic Yuba River.

THE AMERICAN RIVER CONSERVANCY  protects habitat, native fisheries, scenic vistas, and recreational lands within the upper American River and Consumnes River watersheds. Our goal is to help balance the growth of our communities with the protection of those places that provide our sense of place. Over the past 23 years, ARC has worked to select, purchase, and preserve 12,036 acres of native fisheries, river frontage, and upland forests required to sustain and enhance our natural ecologies.
