Welcome Back the TransForm Carbon Crushers!

From TransForm:

Come to San Francisco City Hall Plaza at noon on May 23 to greet the triumphant return ofTransForm’s Carbon Crusher Climate Riders on the last leg of their 320-mile bicycle journey.

May 23 is the fifth and final day of a ride that will take our nine riders through the redwoods of Humboldt County, up infamous Leggett Hill, through wine country on a 100-mile pedaling day, and across the Golden Gate Bridge – all to raise money for TransForm’s work.

Paul Hawken will address the crowd, and we’ll hear the road tales of Climate Riders too.  We’d love to have some supporters cheering on our hard-working team as they all ride in together to the finish line.

And of course, it’s not too late to donate and support the team.

Bike on!

A Rose By Another Name: San Jose’s Bike Party

|
A crowd assembles at the beginning of San Jose Bike Party, April 16, 2010. Let’s just say right away that Critical Mass is a bike party, and the San Jose Bike Party has a lot more similarities to Critical Mass than differences. A half-dozen San Francisco and Berkeley Critical Mass veterans took a field trip […]
