Here’s a guest post from NWF communications intern Max Greenberg!

Just a couple of weeks after Rolling Thunder roared through Washington, a very different kind of ride hit town.

Not only was this biker group far more emissions-friendly, they were focused on a different kind of cause — America’s climate & energy crisis.

The members of Principals for Change do look the part — check out the video clip below of the group riding up to the Lincoln Memorial in mud-spattered bandannas and racing gear. Executive Director Aaron Steinly and other Pennsylvania educators are clearly men on a mission.

Steinly and company had just completed a 50-hour, 222-mile journey to the steps of DC’s Lincoln Memorial from Meyersdale, PA, in the name of raising awareness about the need for increased environmental education in schools across the country. Steinly, currently the assistant principal of United High School in Armagh, PA, also touted PFC GreenSpaces, a new web initiative aimed at helping schools build online environmental communities.
