Tyler Goss

Tyler Goss is the assistant leader for the Climate Ride. Tyler, who has roots in Richmond, Virginia, currently lives in Harrisonburg where he is in charge of campus activities at Eastern Mennonite University and oversees a residence hall as a residence director. 

Tyler comes from the Church of the Brethren side of the Anabaptist pond and has spent many years serving the church in various capacities while also diving into the art of conflict transformation.

Tyler loves to try new things, has an irrational fear of balloons, and strives to live into the motto of “fun people can have fun doing anything.”

In the face of climate change, Tyler gets hope from the college students he works with. “(I) continually see ways that the younger generations are always thinking about what we can do better for the environment,” he said.  “That’s what they talk about.”  

Tyler is looking forward to learning from the other riders and various communities he will encounter on the trip. He is excited to spend a summer immersed in the world of environmental justice all while trying to avoid chafing.
