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.
Grassroots advocacy and policy work takes a tremendous mental and emotional toll on nonprofit leaders. Having the opportunity to join Climate Ride on their Big Sur ride as a result of their Community Award was the best thing for my organization’s success in 2019! Riding with like-minded advocates, environmentalists, and value-driven individuals was refreshing, rewarding, and left me rejuvenated to tackle the biggest issues facing my community. I arrived knowing no one and left with over 100 new friends and allies in the fight for a better world. I am so grateful to Climate Ride for this opportunity. Thank you Climate Ride!
