Why are you riding the STIHL Tour des Trees?
I am concerned for the environment, and because of that I cycle. I am concerned for the environment and because of that I love trees. All trees. Huge majestic oak trees, flimsy delicate willows, whispering silver birches. I cannot conceive of planet Earth without them so I am pleased to ride for their preservation. I heard of this ride from a fellow club cyclist whose entire life is trees and tree care; I wanted to support and ride with him.
