      Hello Roots,

      This Saturday (April 14th), citizens across the U.S. will be gathering locally to make a
      political statement in favor of prompt climate action by Congress.
      <http://events.stepitup07.org> has details on events in your neighborhood (or how to
      organize one :).

      Lots of people will be biking to these events and will be receptive to the concept of more
      practical biking. Beyond extreme practicality, the Xtracycle has critical message:
      responding to climate change can be awesome.

      Even if you decline to be in the (to be uploaded) picture with the "80% CO2 reductions by
      2050" banner, you might want to take your Xtracycle to the nearest event this Saturday.
      Maybe put a sign on it that reads "Cost: two car payments or six months of gas(*)." Put on
      some stickers (xbike or otherwise). Tell people that it's so fun, reducing your footprint is
      an afterthought. Even if you don't say a word, you'll be putting good ideas into new
      minds. Just don't forget those URL/reference cards that came with the FreeRad. :)

      * 10k mi/year in a 25 mpg car is 400 gallons of gas which is now approaching $1200.
