March with fellow Climate Riders in the People's Climate March on Sunday, September 21st. It's probably going to be hard to find your friends in the mobilzation of hundreds of thousands of people, so we're suggesting you could meet up with Climate Ride beneficiaries Transportation Alternatives or Citizen's Climate Lobby, who both have set meetup locations along the "we have the solutions" part of the March lineup. We're also suggesting you wear your Climate Ride Jersey! Those back pockets will prove to be very handy for a long day of marching.

Our final day is a big one! From our forested camp in Sawyer MI, we pedaled 88 miles into Indiana, the Central time zone, and onto our finish in the big city.
The gorgeous Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore provided a stunning panorama of sand dunes and a distant glimpse to the city of Chicago. The park stretches 15 miles and 15,000 acres along the southern shore of Lake Michigan with hiking trails, rugged dunes, oak savannahs, swamps and wetlands, prairies, pine forests and rivers. The biological diversity within this national lakeshore is amongst the highest per unit area of all our national parks, with over 1,100 flowering plant species, ferns, predacious bog plants, native prairie grasses, and diverse wildlife including a number of rare bird species.

Sore legs had a good long stretch of riding as we headed back toward Lake Michigan on the Territorial Road, one of three… Read more →
