Climate Cycle – 125 mile Ride

This past weekend I enjoyed a 62.5 mile bike down to the Indiana Dunes State Park, camped out and biked back to Chicago on Sunday morning, another 62.5 miles. A total of 125 miles in a weekend! This was by far the most biking I’ve ever done, and I loved it.

This ride supports Chicago-based Climate Cycle, who helps educate Chicagoland students about renewable energy and builds eco projects, including solar installations, with these Chicago students. It’s a great organization, and a fantastic event.

I was also very lucky to have a ton of support by friends and family. I raised over $2,000 for the organization, leading up to the event. This should help put a few more solar panels on schools, and educate students about renewable energy and exercise, two very weighty topics.

Thanks again to all my supporters, the t-shirt I made and wore to honor your generosity is below in one of the pics. Check out a few moments we captured from the weekend, along with a video highlight reel, made by my partner in crime for the weekend, Scott Mestrezat.

Thanks again to everyone, I’m looking forward to next year… and my next long ride.
