Russ is a native Californian who has been involved with cycling and fundraising for the past ten years! He’s ridden his bike from San Francisco to Los Angeles three times, but his favorite ride is around Lake Tahoe. Russ recently moved from the Bay Area to Sacramento and is just starting to learn the bike trails in his new town. He raises chickens, grows vegetables and is currently working on turning his home into a mini sustainable farm. Russ was married on Earth Day many (many) years ago and is now a grandpa who wants to leave a better planet for his grandchildren.
