BENEFITING: THE BHUTAN FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Jul 02, 2011
We have a question for you: What does pedaling 300 kilometers over three 10,000 foot Himalayan passes, through lush Bhutanese valleys sprinkled with ancient monasteries and sinuous rivers have to do with climate change?
A group of Bhutanese and American youth want to tell you...right after they catch their breath!
This July, 15 young riders will set out on a journey to explore first-hand perspectives on climate change, as told to them by the people on the ground - farmers, monks, foresters and conservationists. The inaugural Bhutan Bike for Climate offers these intrepid youth an exciting cross-cultural expedition across a country committed to carbon neutrality and gross national happiness.
