Ride the Future Tour, a road trip spanning the width of the United States, involving 43 town parties along the way, and setting not one, but five Guinness world records, will stop in Chattanooga on Tuesday.
Hosted at green|spaces, 63. E. Main Street in Chattanooga, the team will show off their electric cars, scooters, motorcycles and bicycles.
The family-friendly event from 4-6 p.m. will include a cartoonist, arts and crafts for children, along with information on the vehicles and climate change.
The ride will be captured on film as part of a documentary putting a unique spin on the current need for us all to move toward a cleaner future. The film will be highlighting the beauty of the southern American landscape, the big cities and the small towns, the amazing people met and our collective commitment to change for the better.
“Ride the Future aims to demonstrate the importance of moving towards clean, affordable and sustainable sources of energy to help combat the many environment threats our planet faces," said Susan Jones, team leader of Ride the Future.
The core team will also be celebrating with up to 15 cyclists from each city, joining for individual legs of the journey. They will be riding A2B bicycles for about a 100-mile trek to benefit breast cancer research.
The journey will end at Google Headquarters in Mountain View, CA on Aug. 16.
