2016 Disaster Relief Trials

October 22, 2016 at 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Join us Saturday, October 22 to exercise, show off, and celebrate our unique abilities to haul supplies, independent of infrastructure.

It’s a drill, it’s a play day, it’s a competition: centered around a realistic story of neighbors helping neighbors after the big one.

Cascadia Subduction Zone has finally popped free of its perilous stasis. 300 years of unrelenting plate convergence has been resolved in 7 minutes and 25 seconds of existential mayhem. The following 3 days of extrication, triage, and assessment leaves each neighborhood with a long list of material needs. Local supply sources have been identified by emergency management agencies and by your neighbors. The next step is to mount a supply run across broken terrain, in a land neutered of infrastructure.

Your neighbors need help- do you have a cargo bike?

Disaster Relief Trials makes the case with exuberance and fun: cargo bikes are powerful tools for community resilience.
