Every now and then a journalist asks us about the environmental side of the bike tour. We answer that we don’t want to preach. We just want to show that everyday choices to fight climate change are possible and fun. We ride our bikes, play and smile while doing it. Maybe it’s more effective.
But some preaching is needed also. Here is an article about the latest and biggest and most alarming study about climate change. Seems that everything will happen pretty quickly.
For us that is easy to believe because we have visited glacier edges in Sarek and Spitsbergen, for example. Relatively new maps are not correct anymore. They show ice that is not there. That does not proof anything of course, but even vanishing glaciers are kind of big things, and when you see by your own eyes what happens to them, you really feel it.
