Biking for a cause is both the best way to see new parts of the country and be part of something larger than oneself. With climate change being one of the most pressing issues of our time, Climate Ride allows like-minded individuals to take part in an experience that benefits the cause, tests our limits, and promotes bicycle advocacy all in one. The people and organizations that benefit from Climate Ride are many and I am humbled to have been a part of it. I remain inspired by the people I rode with and all they are doing for the cause. My knowledge and resolve to combat climate change are better for having been a part of Climate Ride.
Thanks for the well-marked and scenic route, for having a crew that seemed to magically appear at all the right moments, and for a lineup of informative and passionate speakers. My beneficiaries are delighted and my cyclist friends are jealous. But most importantly my time spent getting to know you and making new friends from NY to DC was one of the best investments of five days I’ve made in some time.
