Sunday Aug 26th ECT Hillsboro ride 9am at Madison Plza
Come see a slide show on a 20,000 mile bicycle journey across North and South America. David Kroodsma biked from California to the
southern tip of South America in an effort to draw attention to the international effects of global warming. With another expert, Bill Bradlee, he has also just biked across the U.S. The slideshow, while
focusing on videos and photos from biking Latin America, he will also discuss some of the challenges of global warming as seen from both North and South America. Visit www.rideforclimate.com for more info.

Exchange Cycle Tours has joined with the Unitarian Church of
Washington Cty (UUCCWC) to promote and attend his slideshow. ECT will offer two ride options for this event. Meet at Madison Plaza (Eastbank esplanade at the Hawthorne Bridge) at 9am and either ride
the Max to Hillsboro or take a bike ride with me to the church.

Please note actual route will start at Madison Plaza: Eastbank Esplanade
at SE Madison, just under the Hawthorne Bridge; and arrive at the UUCCWC,

returning to Portland.
