Los events: August

August 1st /Oakland
Hat-Tip one of my fave longtime readers David, he shares:
"Friend Janet Smartt has her own Climate Ride fundraiser next week, for anyone who wants to pop over to Oakland:This September, I will join 200 other cyclists to ride 320 miles down the NorCal coast in order to raise money and much-needed awareness for effective bike advocacy and sustainability-focused organizations.This gathering on Wednesday August 1st will support the excellent work of 350.org, and will be super fun!"  
My friend and fellow Climate Rider, David Jaber, said it best: "It's so easy to become despondent on seeing the array of issues that call for action, and it's so easy to feel that one person can't make a difference. Climate Ride has emerged for me as a key opportunity to personally make a significant contribution and tackle the challenges which so many of us very deeply care."
