Literary Works

Goodrich is the author of two non-fiction books that combine the science of climate change with distance cycling travelogues. His first book, A Hole in the Wind (Pegasus Books, 2017), captures Goodrich's bicycle journey across the U.S. as he speaks with Americans from all political persuasions about climate change.[5] His second book, A Voyage Across an Ancient Ocean (Simon & Schuster, 2020), follows Goodrich as he cycles across the Western Interior Seaway, an expanse that runs from the Canadian prairies through the Badlands of the United States, and tracks the flow of oil North to South.[6] Goodrich has also published a number of other short non-fiction and fiction works in The Humanist,[7] The Potomac Review, and National Geographic Traveler[8].


Goodrich is the Board Chair for the Chesapeake Climate Action Network (CCAN), a nonprofit organization dedicated to fighting global warming in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C.[9]
