Dan Leaverton to do Climate Ride

Committed cyclist and First Church member Dan Leaverton will be taking part in the Climate Ride, a 250-mile 4-day cycling event from San Francisco to Sacramento, May 17-20. The ride, sponsored by the local organization Bike East Bay, will raise awareness of climate change and fundraise for projects and organizations that work on climate change as well as bicycle advocacy.

Dan writes about his love of cycling: ?About fifteens years ago I followed one of my dreams and pedaled solo across the US and then all around Europe the following year. Along the way I met great and generous people and furthered my love for cycling. Those grand journeys remain fond memories and inspiration to get my family bike touring all over the globe and also safely across town to school."

Dan sees the ride as a perfect complement to Green Commute Sunday on May 4, organized by the Green Ministry Team.
