Team CCL and Climate Ride roll into DC Wednesday

By Ashley Hunt-Martorano

I am so happy to report that Team CCL is doing an amazing job on Climate Ride! They are all such an inspiration – there have been some SERIOUS hills out there and they have stayed focused and determined to finish each day’s ride.

It was fun to have a cheering section in Princeton, where Group Leader Callie Hancock came out to see us off with a cute homemade sign!

Impressively, at camp each night they have been networking despite being exhausted. I imagine we’ll have many new CCL members and quite a few new chapters too.

Here are two videos of Joe Robertson and Danny Richter from the “Why I Ride” blog that you should check out!

Also, if you are in the DC area, please blow off work Wednesday and join Climate Riders as we arrive at Capitol Hill! All the details are here.

Thanks to everyone who donated to Team CCL – not only did they meet their goals, but each of them surpassed them!
