Wow! Bhutan Ride for Climate was so fun for me and I will never in my life forget such an enjoyable ride. The bike ride for climate change was so informative for us because we learnt about so many activities taking place around us. We got a chance to meet with many people and we also exchanged ideas with them. We met with farmers from different places. We also learnt what the farmers and monks say about climate change. Whenever we met people, we asked questions to them about climate change and they somehow knew that the climate is changing. Some places are becoming warmer and warmer compared to before. The climate is changing due to more construction and more cars. The cars produce lots of emissions that effect our environment.
The ride for climate is also a good example to other people that they can travel anywhere they want by bike. They really don’t have to use cars for travel between Thimphu and Bumthang, which is only 270 kilometers. If they are using cars, then there are many effects to the environment because of emissions. As our country is developing, many activities are going on which leads to destruction to our environment. One of the example is the Punatshangchu hydro project, which has lots of effect to environment but I am sure the country will benefit in the future through generation of hydro power and revenue providing free heath and education to our people.
Our trip is coming to an end and I am so sad to be separated from my friends.
Empty, dark has the world become,
With my heart an abyss of suffering,
My hopes and dreams drowned,
My heartthrob flying away.
You all always dwelt in my heart and inspired me with dreams,
Now you all leave me cold and dark with my heart drifting lonely.
Let us all join our hands together to preserve our environment and to have not much change in climate.
So see you all in the future and thanks for all your support during our bike trip.
