Climate Ride is a powerful tool for change. It's not just the riders who feel the force - it's the friends and families who sponsor them, the TV audiences who see the media coverage, the people we meet along the route, the passersby who see us roll up at Capitol Hill, and the politicians who see our commitment to the cause. The ripples of change spread far and wide. --Roz Savage, National Geographic Adventurer of the Year, 2-time Climate Rider

Acclaimed Journalist Eugene Linden to Speak

For over thirty years Eugene Linden has traveled the world researching his books and writing for National Geographic, Time, and many other publications, on nature and the environment.

In his latest book, THE RAGGED EDGE OF THE WORLD: Encounters at the Frontier Where Modernity, Wildlands, and Indigenous Peoples Meet award-winning author and environmental journalist Linden puts a human face on globalism by examining how various cultures around the world are succumbing to—or resisting—modernity.

Publishers Weekly has named “Ragged Edge” one of their “picks for the 10 most intriguing forthcoming travel books” and the April issue of Oprah magazine lists “Ragged Edge” as a “Title to pick up now.”

Check out Linden’s recent column on Huffington Post and his interview with Leonard Lopate/WNYC NPR. Linden will meet the Climate Riders at Princeton University on May 13th on Brita Climate Ride NYC-DC.

  • And, a group of teenagers from the slums of Nairobi have joined together to make a winning video on environmental protection. Guess what the focus is? BIKES! These kids rock. Book 'em at Radio City Music Hall!
