I received a flyer in the email for a ride I was planning to do this summer. It's a 75 mile ride through the Adirondaks. They want $75 for the priviledge with the proceeds going to an environmetalist group with some questionable political positions. I have supported real charitable causes for more than this but this particular one bothers me. I would not question it at 1/2 the price. My inclination is to ride the loop on my own at a different time - if I can find a partner. There is a lot of "black territory" where there is no cell phone coverage.
Here in lies the question - how much would you pay for a supported ride (and a friggin T-shirt) where the proceeds goes to an organization that has a less than neutral political position?
