Climate Ride 2009

Monday, October 5th, 2009

Was a huge success.

Thank you for everyone who contributed. To see more from the event, visit Below is our flickr photostream.

For the final two days of the ride, I was in charge of escorting the Danish ambassador. He was riding with us because the COP 15 climate negotiations, which will be held in Denmark, were one of Climate Ride’s sponsors.

Friis turned out to be one of the stronger cyclists (it helped that Specialized lent him a $5,000 carbon fiber bicycle for the weekend), and a good guy to ride with, even if he looked eerily like my father. On the left is the two of us, in the middle is a group of us riding together, and on the right is a number of Climate Riders visiting the Danish Embassy in Washington.
