Re: Paul Goodman Bike Contest
- Quite coincidentally, following up on my earlier post today,
see this on Paul Goodman:
>Hi Car Free,----- ### -----
>My name is Jesse Florendo and I work with a documentary called Paul Goodman
>Changed My Life. Weâre sponsoring a contest to encourage people to reduce
>global warming and improve transportation options in their own communities.

>paulgoodmanfilm.com/bike. The contest launched October 1st and runs through
>November, so if youâre interested in posting about it, today or tomorrow

>Paul Goodman Changed My Life is honoring Goodmanâs legacy by inviting
>people to propose change in their own communities. Anyone who submits five
