That's my son on his maiden bike ride last year. He and I ride around San Francisco a lot. In fact one of the major reasons I moved here was to be able to get around by bike year-round. Biking makes me happy, it makes him happy, and it makes the planet happy.
Which is one of the reasons I'm taking part in this year's Climate Ride. Lately it feels like things ain't what they used to be climate-wise, and with recent political events it seems less likely than ever that anything will be done to address that disruption in the near future. So I'm a little freaked out.
Recently I began working as an audio editor at Climate One, a radio series and podcast from the Commonwealth Club of California that's re-focused my commitment to the climate cause. I'll be riding hundreds of miles with the Climate One team to raise money for non-profit organizations that work to keep climate from going off the rails and disrupting our ways of life –but I can't do it without YOUR HELP.
