350

Cycling Rally on Oct 24

October 12, 2009

Background

350.org is an international campaign dedicated to building a movement to unite the world around solutions to the climate crisis–the solutions that science and justice demand. To start building a global grassroots campaign Oct 24th has been designated as the International Day of Climate Action. On this day, people from 152 countries will, in nearly 3000 unique events, will take a stand for a safe climate future and spread the message.We invite you to lend your voice too.

The Event

Vehicles contribute to nearly a third of all CO2 emitted. Any solution that seeks to reduce emissions is incomplete without Cycling being a part of it. What better way to raise consciousness about the number 350 than to use a Biking rally to do it? The bikers of Bangalore, through various clubs (BOTS and BBC, for instance) and events such as Critical Mass, have been instrumental in spreading awareness about the role of cycling in a sustainable urban setup. It appears that our job is not done yet. We now ask you to lend your hand once again.

Details of the Rally

An exercise like this is most useful in a place where it is most needed. We decided to hold the rally in the Central Business District. The route that we chose is one that Critical Mass has already used in one its past events.
