Moving Planet Morning Bike Ride in Berkeley
9:00am – 11:15am
Kick off the day with a ride co-sponsored by the East Bay Bike Coalition, Transition Berkeley, and Ecology Center. Enjoy complementary coffee and bagels at the downtown Bike Station and EBBC office, then ride through the streets of Berkeley to show our support for the bicycle and other sustainability solutions. We’ll visit Lorin Station, site of an inspiring city project and listen to some great local music. We’ll wrap up the bike ride at Ashby BART, where we’ll gather with others and head to SF for a big Moving Planet rally and parade.
Rally and Parade in Downtown SF
12:00pm – 3:00pm
Gather with thousands of community members from around the Bay building momentum toward a fossil-fuel free future through art, creativity and alternatives. Start in Justin Herman Plaza and parade down Market St. toward Civic Center Plaza. End the procession (but not the movement!) in Civic Center with speakers including Bill McKibben, co-founder of 350.org, and Mike Brune, Executive Director of the Sierra Club, info tables, music and dancing, food and drinks, art projects, science experiments, and much more!
