Right now, Rails-to-Trails Conservancy's Kyle Lukacs is on his bike somewhere between the Susquehanna River in Pennsylvania and the Maryland border. No, Kyle isn't on the lam from work... it's a much more noble journey.

He is part of Climate Ride 2012, a five-day ride that left New York City on Saturday, headed for Washington, D.C. When the nearly 200 riders arrive at the U.S. Capitol building tomorrow afternoon, Kyle will no doubt have plenty of great stories for us from this long and ever-changing ride, from the hustle and bustle of New York and New Jersey, to the quiet, curvy roads and green countryside of the Amish regions of Pennsylvania.

In the meantime, here's a few pics of some of the sights from Climate Ride 2012. Just click on either of the images here to see a slideshow of photos from the ride so far.

Also, if you're in the D.C. area, be sure to join us on the Upper Senate Lawn on Wednesday afternoon around 4 p.m. to see the riders arrive and listen to guest speakers reflect on the significance of their accomplishment.
