Biking Across America with WE ADD UP - Day 28: Mountain Pass

This post is one in a series of video blogs about biking across America with WE ADD UP to raise awareness about how to stop global warming. Check out more posts in this series here.

On Day 28, the fickle weather held, and the first three hours of today were the best of the trip thus far. There were long climbs (the first was Teton Pass ~ 4 miles at 10% grade over 8,600 ft) and longer, serpentine, wicked-fast (read: SCARY!) descents. Imagine the classic Tour de France mountain stage you may have seen on TV. The remainder of the afternoon had a bit of everything: cold, heat, rain, snow, tractor trailers, empty back roads, hills, flats, headwinds, tailwinds, a calm, people honking, people waving and giving thumbs up.

WE ADD UP is an organic t-shirt campaign that counts you in the fight to stop global warming. Choose an action you're committing to doing on the back of your tee. 28 choices include Recycle, Buy Local, Bike, Plant Trees, and Shower Together. And, on the front of your tee, we custom hand-print YOUR number to count you in. Your number represents your position in the global count of people adding up to make change.
