Ten years ago this month, Bill and I were on our way to completing Ride for Climate USA, a bicycle journey we undertook across the country to raise awareness of climate change and promote solutions. On this journey, we talked to thousands of people and gave over 45 presentations on global warming at schools and community centers. Bill wrote some closing thoughts on the ride in this blog post in September of 2007.
The best part of our bicycle journey across the country was meeting people, and staying at the homes of the numerous people who hosted us. We still (hopefully) have the contact information for many of these individuals, and over the next few weeks we’re going to reach out to people to ask them what has changed in the past decade for them with regards to how they see climate change. Do they feel like we’re making progress? Is there anything they have done to fight climate change that they want to share? If you’re reading this and met us on our bike trip — let us know.
