Our primary goal for this group is to connect you with the issues we care about. The issues that drive us and that we spend so much time working on. If we can inspire you, if we can share our vision with you, we succeed.
While we used to host a regular recurring Meetup for our members, we have decided to do away with this fixed monthly date. Instead, we hope that you will enjoy the events CDi and our friends and partners share here with you.
Particularly, we hope that this revamped group and format will encourage listings of and participation in bicycle rides in and around the City. You may know that, amongst others, we have a program called Miles of Trees (MoT). MoT is an athletic fund raising initiative for reforestation and tree nursery projects (in Haiti and beyond).
In the three years since Miles of Trees was launched, we have steadily grown, heavily pedaled, and significantly celebrated the rush and adrenaline that comes with physical exercise and the outdoors.
Now, we want to take the next step and really open up Miles of Trees to everyone, novice or expert rider. Previous MoT riders, current team members, and members of the MoT Organizing Committee will be using this group to post fun, training and practice rides.
These rides will vary in length, in time, and in difficulty. There will be rides for all of you. We hope you will enjoy this as much as we do and join us for not just a ride or two, but for a season and a cause. The 2014 season will have as its highlight our fourth annual Miles of Trees Flagship Ride from Virginia Beach to NYC – 4 days, 360 miles.You can do it!
