From April to July 2019 I'm bicycling 4400 miles from San Francisco to Boston via two dozen aquariums to raise money to combat climate change, get to know people across the US, and discuss our oceans, our climate, and our environment.
I'm even going to pick up at least 1 piece of trash each day to make my route cleaner then when I arrived. Trash blows or washes into our creeks, rivers, and oceans and eventually kills baby albatrosses, turtles, and other wildlife in our Oceans. It even gets into the seafood and sea salt we eat! What goes around, comes around.
I need YOUR HELP! Right now, it is more important than ever to work toward a sustainable future. Our kids are counting on us. A great way that you can help is to donate to my Ride. I'm digging deep to cover all my ride costs myself. I'm hoping all of my friends can dig deep to support me. If 10 friends donate $1 a mile, I've made my goal. Or 100 donate a dime a mile. I'll even try for 1000 at a penny a mile.
Please donate as much as you are able and think of me pedaling hard for 88 days to earn it. And please apply for your company's matching donations if they offer it.
100% of your donations go to the following 5 organizations:
Union of Concerned Scientists - To encourage real Science! Science is what made and makes America Great.
Adventure Cycling Association - To encourage more people to bike around the US and meet people rather than driving or flying over the middle and missing so many people in the process.
League of American Bicyclists - To make roads and government policies better as well as to educate more cyclists AND motorists.
Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition - To encourage many more people to bike around Silicon Valley -- we have great weather and can lead by example!
Climate Ride - To encourage more people to walk the walk and ride the ride.
These organizations are making a difference by promoting science & bicycle transportation, reducing pollution, and fighting climate change. Your generous donation will help us turn the tide, build a greener economy, and improve our lives. You can make a secure online donation today by clicking on the 'Support Me' button. You'll automatically receive an acknowledgment and I will be notified by email of your support. Thank you for your help!
Why am I focused so much on bicycling? Because biking is probably the easiest and most impactful way for each person to immediately make a difference -- saving money (about $6K per year or $120K over the 20 year life span of a typical car), improving health, reducing traffic congestion, reducing pollution, and making this world a friendlier place. Nonetheless, Science is critical too thus the Union of Concerned Scientists.
