Green Cruise is Aug 11

Green Cruise is Aug 11

The Annual Sierra Club Green Cruise takes place on Saturday, Aug. 11, 2012 with a variety of mass bicycle rides to choose from.  The Green Alley is the grand finish line where bicyclists and other visitors can enjoy samples of healthy foods and talk to various vendors.  There is a Green Parade celebrating human-powered modes of transportation, and there are often unusual costumes, bicycle decorations and unique pedal-powered contraptions.
