      Climate Change Awareness Bike Ride
      April 14, 2007
      10:00AM to 1:00PM

      Event Description:
      The Community Exchange Cycle Touring Club and Bike School will lead
      off the day of events with a bicycle ride starting at People's Co-op
      in SE Portland at 10:00 am.

      The Community Exchange Cycle Touring Club and Bike School will be
      leading a bike tour to promote low or zero carbon solutions as part of
      our mission to promote peace and ecological respect, said Aaron
      Tarfman, volunteer leader of the ride on Saturday. Saturday's ride
      will visit People's Food Co-op, a passive solar residence in Northeast
      Portland, the Ecotrust's Jean Vollum Natural Capital Center and the
      Step It Up rally at Terry Schrunk Plaza.

      The event is part of the Step it Up 2007 campaign which will culminate
      at a rally downtown from 1:00-3:00 pm. The idea behind the Step It Up
      bike ride was to visit locations that showcase Portland's sustainable
      ideas from residential to commercial. "The Jean Vollum Natural Capital
      Center is gathering place for good ideas, explains Jen Marlow,
      Communications Associate at Ecotrust. Step It Up 2007 is one of those
      good ideas, and Ecotrust is thrilled to be a stop on the campaign
      toward better climate health."

      Start Location:
      3029 SE 21 Ave (People's Co-op)

      Length of ride: approx 7.5 miles with a couple of stopping locations
      in NE Portland, NW Portland (Ecotrust) and ending in SW Portland
      (Terry Schrunk Plaza)

      Directions:
      Ride your bike to People's Co-op and then we'll ride around town!
      Final details of the map are still being worked out. Please email if
      you are really needing to see a map before you embark on this great
      adventure!

      Weather:
      Showers with 40% chance of rain...43 to 54 degrees

      thanks!
