Roll Against Coal!
Sunday, 10 October, 2010 - 12:00 - 20:00
Greenpeace, Climate Solutions, Transition PDX, Bright Neighbor, Sierra Club and Youth Empowered Action (YEA) are joining together with the Portland bike community for this year's global day against climate change.
We will host a free bike repair workshop on SE Ankeny and SE 18th ave at 12/noon. Bike mechanics and people with know-how will teach you basic bike repairs and you will get a chance to deck out your bike in anti-coal fashion. At 3pm we will "Roll against Coal" in a rally around town (route is being determined, but will stay on the east side and go along established bike routes). We will ask our decision-makers to move beyond dirty energy, such as coal, and provide us with clean and safe alternatives. The rally will return to SE Ankeny / 18th Ave for an after-party with beer and music.
We're actively looking for more volunteers and partners right now, so get involved and make this your event! We want this day to be big, fun and meaningful while we get to work against climate change.
