I’ve had the honor of participating in four Climate Rides so far and the experience gets better and more impactful each time. The ride itself is the gold standard – flawlessly and painstakingly planned – with some of the best views and trails I have ever seen. The fundraising is never as hard and daunting as I think it’s going to be as friends and new friends are eager to support this important cause. But most importantly, it’s about the people I have met – from the stellar and accomplished crew to the riders who are all doing real things to help the planet be a better place. I always come back feeling better about humanity and the world.
