Earth Day Bicycle Parade media advisory

What: An Earth Day Bicycle Parade to celebrate institutions in Albany with solar panels such as the First Unitarian Universalist Society of Albany, the Spectrum 8 Theatres, and the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York.

Why: To honor our one and only planet. With climate change we have a tight and unforgiving deadline to keep the increase of global warming under 2º celsius over pre-industrial times. Institutions such as the ones listed above are showing us one way to mitigate climate change.

Where: Beginning at the corner of Judson and Livingston adjacent to Tivoli Park. Ending with refreshments at the pedestrian bridge on Broadway next to the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York.

When: Press Conference on Wednesday, April 22nd, from 11:45 - 12:00 PM. Ride from noon - 1PM. Refreshments at the pedestrian bridge from 1:00 - 1:30

Who: Co-sponsors include the People of Albany United for Safe Energy, an Albany Bicycle Police escort and the CDTA. Speakers include elected officials plus civic leaders such as Dr. Dave Hochfelder of Solarize Albany, Reverend Sam Trumbore of the First Unitarian Universalist Society of Albany, and Dr. Steve Breyman from RPI.

Photo Op: A colorful crowd with earth flags will watch as the CDTA demonstrates how to mount a bike onto a bus rack. Children from the Castle Island Montessori School will accompany the adults during their ride through Washington Park.
