On Climate Ride I met experts from every field of work and climate enthusiasts from every state. Together we brainstormed how to solve climate change–while taking in the beauty and challenge of transporting ourselves, carbon-free, from New York to DC! Once there, I had a chance to meet my U.S. Senator. We had a half-hour one-on-one conversation that confirmed that our ride did raise awareness, that politicians are listening, and that we can work together toward a clean energy future.
