Go Bike! Rockford

Please join the Youth Leaders and the Roots & Wings network at Go Bike! Rockford, on Sunday, October 10th at Brown Park in Rockford. The Youth Leaders and Roots & Wings network, is coordinated by Angelic Organics Learning Center through our Urban Initiative in Rockford.

Go Bike! Rockford is a public festival promoting the reduction of carbon emissions by establishing and maintaining pro-bicycle culture and urban food systems in Rockford, IL. The event will feature a mini farmers market held by the Youth Leaders, a free bike clinic, a BMX demo, street art expo & auction, voter registration, and a critical mass bike ride. The Youth Leaders and Roots & Wings network is co-sponsoring Go Bike! Rockford with Kegel's Bicycle store and Rockford community members as an event planned for the 350.org 10/10/10 Global Work Party. 350.org is a worldwide movement to raise awareness about global climate change. Go Bike! Rockford is one of the largest 10/10/10 events in Illinois.

In addition to organizing the festival, the Go Bike! Rockford planning committee has also created a public petition to Major Morrissey and the Rockford government urging city development that supports bicyclists and bicycle transportation. Read and sign the petition to help promote biking in Rockford.
