DRAWING AT THE GREEN ROOTS FESTIVAL: Come ride the Bike-A-Thon to benefit BNB and have fun at the Green Roots Festival on Sunday, June 7th! The festival will celebrate sustainable urban living in a park that was only saved from becoming a highway by the grassroots efforts of local communities. Cheer heroic Bike-A-Thon riders (or be one yourself – www.bikesnotbombs.org) as they return from their ride to an outdoor gathering of environmental organizations, neighbors, and friends: featuring live street bands, food, pageantry, artisans, and thoughtful content on issues of environmental sustainability.

Bikes Not Bombs promotes bicycle technology as a concrete alternative to war and environmental destruction. For 25 years, BNB has been a nexus of bike recycling and community empowerment both in lower income neighborhoods of Boston and in the nations of the Global South. BNB's programs involve young people and adults in mutually respectful leadership development and environmental stewardship, while recycling thousands of bicycles.
