Earth Day in Columbus

The only way to feel more smug than biking on any old day is to bike to Earth Day activities to volunteer and do stuff. I'll discuss this weekend today.

Yay Bikes! is holding a free bike ride  on Saturday which will go from Goodale Park to Olde Town East. Once there, the riders will work on a community garden. The way I see it, you'll be like the Amish living in the city instead of the country with bikes instead of horses. At the end of the event, a barbeque lunch will be had. You should try to RSVP to Facebook.

Consider Biking is hosting a ravine cleaning event in Clintonville on Saturday. Their base is situated next to one of the handful of ravines in Clintonville. All ravines have a special affinity for trash for some reason. After cleanup, there will be cookout. You should RSVP here for Clintonville Cleanup.

Finally, if you're looking for something else to do or want to do something on Sunday (like me), then go to Root Down and look at the event list. You can plant, cleanup, community garden, remove invasive species, pretty much anything relating to "green." If you can bike to the event, even better! My girlfriend and I are biking to the Franklinton Community Gardens on Sunday so maybe we'll see you there.

Anyway, have fun this weekend and I hope you have a chance to volunteer.
