Next month, I will bike 320 miles from Fortuna to San Francisco as part of Climate Ride California 2012. The ride consists of hundreds of cyclists pedaling in a five-day ride to raise money for more than 30 green organizations that are working on sustainability, bike advocacy, the climate crisis, and clean energy solutions.

In order for me to participate however, I must raise at least $2,400 in pledges, right now I am at 35% of my goal. Your donation will help support Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition to teach safe cycling skills, address insufficient infrastructure, and reach out to both motorists and cyclists in Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties to become an even more inviting place for a bike ride.

Please make a donation of $25, $50, $100 or more, and help support this very important cause. It's very easy… visit my fundraising page where you can make a tax-deductible donation online.

Any size donation will help get me closer to my fundraising goal! If you would like to know more, please send me an email at or check out the website at

Thank you all so much for your support!
