Why are you riding the STIHL Tour des Trees?
As a first year rider, I am excited to join this amazing family of cyclists and support staff. Planting trees, educating kids, and sharing how trees benefit our community and personal well-being is a wonderful way to practice healthy living.

Why are you riding the STIHL Tour des Trees?
As a resident of planet Earth I am a full stakeholder in the health of our ecosystem! Riding a few hundred miles to raise awareness of the importance of protecting trees is a pretty easy thing to do. Our climbing equipment is designed to protect the tree climbers, and now I have the opportunity to help protect the trees themselves!

Why are you riding the STIHL Tour des Trees?
I ride for the trees that clean our air and water and help make communities and cities better places to live. Our industry depends upon good science to guide our practices and the money we raise goes to this important research! Plus, it is a week spent with my sister, Melanie and many other great friends from all over the country (and the world!).
