Climate Ride Finale

Posted on May 19, 2011. Filed under: Climate Ride |

We made it! The entire group of 140 Climate Riders completed the over 300 mile bike trek from New York City to Washington DC and we still had energy to burn after the final leg.

Day 5 was WET! We rode through down-pouring rain as we entered Maryland. At least it was warm and let up after awhile. We were all so pumped to get to DC that nothing could phase us at this point.

Seeing all the familiar road signs in MD was exciting because I knew just how close we were getting. We had lunch in Silver Spring, then blasted down the Capitol Crescent Trail to Georgetown where we all gathered to do our victory ride to Capitol Hill.

Our huge group was ringing our bike bells and yelling “we ride for the climate!” as we made our made our way down Constitution Avenue. It was a truly incredible thing to be a part of. After hearing from a few climate champions in Congress and lots of photos, it was already time to pack up and head our separate ways. I am going to miss this group of riders immensely. This experience has charged me up in so many ways!
