Bike in to this event! We have ten rides from ten schools across Bellingham, that all come together at the City Hall Plaza. There we will have an info fair/climate rally from noon to 2 pm. Then a second ride will head out to the proposed Cherry Point Coal Terminal. This is but one event among the hundreds of events happening across the globe drawing attention to our need to find solutions to our climate crisis.
