Meet Ben Wideman, first in our get-to-know-the-riders series. The 2015 PA-to-DC ride will take place May 1-5.
I grew up paying little attention to the environment around me. My family strived to live simply – not necessarily for the environmental benefits, but because it saved money and resources to reduce, reuse, and recycle. Something changed for me in high school and then college, where working to lower my carbon footprint and to live a more eco-friendly life became an essential part of my spiritual existence.
