Ride For Climate Champion Supports Ride350!
David Kroodsma is a hero in the realm of climate change activism. And it's pioneers like him that serve as inspiration to bicycle enthusiasts like team Ride350.
The video above is an audio-visual sampling of his recently completed 21,000 mile journey, by bicycle, from California to the southern tip of South America and then some, the whole time preaching the climate gospel to schools, churches, media outlets - basically anyone who would listen. He recently completed a book about his adventure, and, having been a friend and casual adviser to the Ride350 team since inception, I had the chance to catch up with him the other day to congratulate him on the accomplishment.
His words of wisdom to Ride350: “Congrats in advance to all of you on the 350 ride! Don't underestimate the transformative power of a bicycle journey!”
Thanks David, and good luck in all that you continue to do so well.
