I was looking forward to seeing the beauty of nature in the mountains, bearing witness to the effects of climate change on the glaciers, and challenging my body. While all those things did happen, it was the inspiration I gained from my fellow hikers that has given me renewed motivation to work on this issue.
I learned so much from the people I met, listened to when they spoke about the organizations they represented, shared meals with, rode with, laughed with and drank with. The Climate Ride staff were amazing, always there, super organized, supportive and encouraging. I will miss all of my new friends and our shared riding adventure. Thank you all again for your love and support. Can’t wait to do another Climate Ride next year!
