MN tour coming in August

Planning has begun for the summer 2017 LowCarbon Crossing. Stay tuned for details as they continue to form. Mid August we will embark on a week long bike tour of western Minnesota. We will connect urban and rural dwellers on our shared concerns and our differing perspectives. We will explore topics of climate change solutions, agriculture, citizenship and more in community conversations along the way. Join us for part or all of the tour. We’ll also be doing some half day fun rides leading up to the tour. Let us know if you’re interested in joining in to ride, plan, sponsor or volunteer.
