Evergreen Bikes!


On April 14th, 2007, bikers converged at Division and Harrison to show their support for Step It Up National Climate Action Day. There were close to 50 bikers carrying signs with slogans like "Global Warming is Terrorism" and "Bikes are Sexy." Riding downtown they blocked lanes of car traffic and got a lot of support from pedestrians and sympathetic drivers alike. The ride proceeded through downtown and ended at Sylvester park for the main event.

The event featured a myriad of speakers and music intertwined throughout the day. People came in waves, wandering through the delightful and informative booths soaking up information for this first but soon to be annual event. Every half an hour groups left on an imaginary new waterfront tour showing where the waterline in Olympia is predicted to be.

Nice work! Heard about it via the World Carfree Network email list; you might want to add worldcarfree. net and carbusters. org to your list of links.

What a waste. The message is already out there, everybody knows it, but here comes the parade of artistic licensees (one that allows any 'artist' to use massive amounts of non-recyclable goods, pure chemicals for the once over effect) who have to 'create' some thing earth destruction to show and tell others what we already know. Encasing a car, parading a paper polar bear that gets a go at the gassed parade.
You shoulda planted a seed beside a bike path if you wanted to leave a smaller ecological footprint.
Eventually, all yer glued together crap will wind up where it belongs; in the dump.

What a bunch of morons...I only had to read the first paragraph wehere you described "very likely" as a scientific term. I could tell the rest of the article was going to be more moronic babble.
