Saturday, 22 August Wellington cyclists are gathering for a photo op

Hey all

This has all come up quite last minute but I've hit the ground running with it and am getting it out to all the networks!  Please pass this on to your contacts.  Is there a way to send this out to everyone who's a member of CAW??

Saturday, 22 August Wellington cyclists are gathering for a photo op and a group cycle ride.  The aim is to promote cycling as a low-carbon form of transportation and to raise further awareness about the need for safe cycle lanes in the city.  We will start the day at 11.45am in front of St Johns by the waterfront (5 Cable St, near Mac's Brewery) where we will form a huge 350 human/cycle sculpture, take a great photo, tell the media what we're doing and why, and then go on a short cycle ride.  Kashi Leuchs (3x Olympic Mtn Bike rider), Frocks on Bikes, Cycle Aware Wellington (CAW) and avid/recreational cyclists will all be there. So come out and support safe cycling and the 350 movement!

When: Saturday, 22 August
Time: 11.45am - please be prompt for the photo!
Where: In front of St Johns on the waterfront, 5 Cable St.  (map )
The route: From St Johns we'll ride up Cable St, up Kent Terrace, circle the Basin Reserve, back along Wakefield Street and finish at Manners Mall and Victoria St.

Again, please send out to your networks - we want to get as many people out as possible for this to promote 350, safe cycling, the Great Harbour Way ride, and more!  People can't come if they don't know about it!!  So spread the word.
