If you’re considering doing a Climate Ride, or questioning whether you have the physical ability to do it—I’d say to you, “If I can do it, you can do it.” I’m not a competitive cyclist; I rode on a hybrid bike, not a fancy road bike. You’ll be welcomed, you’ll be encouraged, and you’ll enjoy it. Anyone who’s determined and in reasonable shape can finish this ride.
Phenomenal! Climate Ride is a tremendously professional, organized and competent organization (and personable, easy-going, and inspiring). That’s all the more impressive given how small it is – a few visionary, exceedingly capable, and engaging people, who have earned the respect of partners large and small, who make this an outstanding experience in every way. The scenery is breathtaking, and I particularly appreciated being in a smaller national park (i.e., not yet overrun by tourists). The cause was kept front and center in such meaningful, personal, and impactful ways. Glacier Guides are real pros, inspiring environmentalists and educators, and took care of our needs so wonderfully! And the evening speakers absolutely made this experience as unique and profound as it was – definitely a highlight in a trip FILLED with powerful elements.
