What: JUNKride
When: Tue., April 21, 6:30 p.m – 9:00p.m.
Where: Keen Footwear, 926 NW 13th Ave., No. 210, Portland, OR 97209

In time for Earth Day, two environmentalists cycling 2,000 miles in a quest to end the age of disposable plastics will pedal into Portland, Salem and Newport for free public lectures starting April 21 on the “plastic soup” fouling our oceans.
The Oregon presentations are among dozens that Dr. Marcus Eriksen and Anna Cummins of California’s Algalita Marine Research Foundation (AMRF) are delivering to educators, policymakers and the public along the West Coast as part of JUNKride 2009. The couple launched their 15-city bicycle ride/lecture tour in Vancouver on April 4 and will conclude it in Tijuana in June.

NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion.

Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael
