Green Cruise 8/8/09

This Saturday, August 8,  join the Sierra Club's Green Cruise. It's a 21-mile ride from Ferndale to Birmingham intended to draw attention to non-motorized transportation -- in the face of serious gas-guzzling taking place concurrently with the annual Dream Cruise on Woodward.

It starts at 8 a.m., but there is also a 5-mile family ride that starts at 9 a.m.

Both rides begin at the Green Alley located just west of Woodward Ave. at W. 9 Mile and Planavon St.

After the ride, there's a bunch more stuff going on: a climbing tower, face painting, massages, skateboard demos and free bike check-ups.
