Climate Cycle Fundraiser

Climate Cycle is a fundraising event where cycling participants raise money to help put solar cells and "green" learning tools in public school classrooms around the Chicago area.

Last year I joined up with my friends and rose over $1000, and rode 62 miles. This year, my team will be biking 125 miles over 2 days and has set a team goal of $10,000.

Once again, I'm hosting a home brew party to generate extra donations. I've been busy brewing up 3 different 10gal batches. I wanted to share the recipes here so that guests can get an idea of what to expect.

I welcome pledges from anyone visiting my brew journal. Please fisit my fundraising webpage to make a donation http://climatecycle.donordrive.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.participant&eventID=501&participantID=1088
