Critical Mass Climate Emergency Ride
September 8, 2019 at 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
Let’s join an international solidarity Critical Mass “Bike for the Rainforest” event and roll across Portland with friends and family!
We have a ride from Portland Mercado arriving for a rally downtown at Salmon St fountain and 5 more miles to Alberta Park. We’ll pick up a Kidical Mass for the last couple easy flat miles from Irving Park. End at 3pm at a potluck picnic (in progress 1-5) with Extinction Rebellion.
10-mile SE 72nd & Foster
2-mile Irving Park – Kidical Mass
Those of you who remember Critical Mass in Portland, I imagine this is a different spirit than the rush-hour protests. Here we’re working on growing everyday activism like riding your bike to the park and making it comfortable and easy for everyone to do that. Is that a continuation of the movement, and how can we help more people find a way to sustain everyday climate action/activism with safe, inclusive transportation? I welcome your thoughts on that.
