Motivation:

Unitarian Universalists share several principals, one being “Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.” We are always making changes to our living faith: perhaps “Reverence” would be a better word than “respect.”

I ride because I, like all of us, am a part of this miraculous web of life—and today, our Earth is imperiled by climate change. I can not ignore this truth, and so I join this ride. One hundred miles on my aging body will be a challenge, but nothing like the challenge we all face if we do nothing to draw down greenhouse gases and clean up toxins that threaten our health and environment.

I ride to remind myself of the Earth’s beauty and abundance in springtime, to see the blue herons nesting, delight in wildflowers, take in the cool shade of a giant oak, pedal with and against the wind, and hear stream waters trickling over rocks. I ride to remember what it is that I love—and to take a stand to save it for my children and for future generations.
