12 years ago, he embarked on a bicycle tour from Vancouver, Canada to Tijuana, Mexico. The following year he traveled from Miami Beach, FL to New York City, NY. In 2014 and 2020 he rode from New Orleans to Niagara Falls, Canada following the historic path of the Underground Railroad.

In 2022, he retraced the route and history of the All-Black, bicycle-mounted 25th Infantry to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the Bicycle Corps 1897 expedition from Fort Missoula, Montana to St. Louis, Missouri. Their mission was to thoroughly test the practicability of the bicycle as a method of transportation. Erick was recently inducted into The Explorers Club in 2022 and named one of the 50 Explorers (#EC50) changing the world.

Our speakers are the heartbeat of our events, sharing transformative stories and expert insights that resonate deeply, sparking inspiration and action among participants. Their diverse voices illuminate the path towards sustainability that empowers each of us to become a champion for our planet.
