The Ride To Sustain

The ride is over, but the follow on projects are beginning to produce fruit. During the summer of 2007, 3 young men cycled 4000 miles in three months from San Francisco to Boston in an effort to learn more about sustainability, climate science and other related topics. Newly released is an 11 minute trailer for the forthcoming documentary, embedded below. Also coming soon is at least one book. Thanks to Celcias for sponsoring the ride initially and continuing to update on new developments. I haven't read all of the road reports and watched the videos submitted along the way, but they can be read and viewed at Celsias in the archive and at the Ride To Sustain website.

In other news for the project, a 2008 cycle odyssey is planned with new riders, this time starting in Chicago. The focus will be changed to become a fund raising ride with the proceeds used for developing educational materials about climate change and renewable energy systems for public schools.
