Cycling Eurovelo 8 for Climate Change Awareness


My name is Phil Daughton and I'm currently training to ride the Eurovelo 8 route from Cadiz, Spain to Athens, Greece in May 2017. This trip was birthed from a wanderlusting quarter life crisis and eventually transformed into an environmental awareness pilgrimage. I recently decided to focus my life more passionately about the things that drive me. That being physical fitness, traveling the world, and protecting the environment. In regards to conservation, the political climate in the United States and the recent administration's disregard for environmental concerns have provoked in me a sense of action. The way I've decided to take action is by creating a blog that harps upon my travels and any environmental issues I come across along the way. As well as fundraising for a nonprofit called the National Resource Defense Council (NRDC) who have been fighting for environmental policy and climate action for over the last 45 years.

If you're interested in the blog or donating, please feel free to take a look at my website below:
