Climate Ride has shown me a new, innovative and environmentally friendly way to live my life. Participating in hikes and bike rides evokes incredible feelings of pride, care and joy; not just for the organization or your fellow participants, but also for the Earth and the nature we live in everyday. It’s because of my involvement in Climate Ride that I feel so passionately about protecting and conserving what the planet has given us.
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.
