Many of you have seen the stunning pictures from the Rise for Climate ride (see iconic pic below) that we had on Saturday, September 8th for an international day of action around climate change and organized worldwide by 350.org. In their perfect wisdom, Brattleboro's 350 node group decided to mark this day with a Critical Mass type bike ride, along with a march and a well-organized and all-around positive rally at the Brattleboro Common. Our ride had over 100 cyclists, including all sorts of electric cargo bikes, ebikes and bikes of all types. And at least 20 kids joined in the great fun and important message we're propelling! There was some 250 in total at the rally.
Check out some of what we had at the Bike Petting Zoo. We will certainly do this again! Folks got a good taste of this emerging bike revolution in Vermont and how that connects with issues of climate change and making our communities just so much better. And thanks to 350 Brattleboro for organizing this wonderful day of action.
