Independent Challenge Spotlight: California Woof Ride!

Emily Kern on July 7, 2016, 2:57 PM

Last year, Harvey Slater rode in the California Climate Ride to support the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition (LACBC).

Harvey generated his own 320 mile, unsupported, multi-day California bicycle tour as part of Climate Ride’s Independent Challenge program and brought the whole family along. Harvey, his partner Ricky, and their four dogs–Max, Chiquita, Little Foot, and Carlos–have just returned from six days pedaling along the California Central Coast on their self-created “California Woof Ride.”

Emily Kern on June 16, 2016, 5:00 PM

“Just finished the most challenging day yet on this tour–three peaks, 100+ degree heat, 83 miles with no towns and no services… as I cross into Utah,” Michael Johnson-Chase, Climate Ride Independent Challenger, writes from the road outside of Milford, Utah.

At this moment, Michael Johnson-Chase bravely pedals his way across the Utah desert and will continue east over the Rocky Mountains to meet and volunteer with Denver’s GRID Alternatives office. Michael is in the middle of a trans-America unsupported bicycle tour that he created with the help of Climate Ride’s Independent Challenge program.
