This October I will be participating in my first charity bike ride ever, and I picked a doozy: Climate Ride California, which is a 5-day, 320-mile ride from Eureka, CA to San Francisco, CA to raise money for environmental and bicycle advocacy nonprofits. These nonprofits include the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition, the NYC-based Transportation Alternatives, and DC-based Washington Area Bicyclist Association.

Like some of you, I am also brand-new to fund raising, and would be extremely grateful for any help. Please see my letter on my personal fund raising page at:

(Additionally, if there are any women in the SF Bay Area who would like to go on some relatively leisurely paced 20-60 mile bike rides over the next few months, feel free to drop me a line and we'll see if we can figure something out!)

Thank you!
