Take It to the Streets

Posted By on Thu, May 27, 2010 at 10:30 PM

Feeling frustrated and helpless about the growing gulf in the Gulf? Since you can’t fly over it or even get to it without the permission of the all-powerful BP Oz, then take to the streets to show your support for lessening our dependence on crude — and perhaps work off some of the anxiety over what the muck from the oil rig disaster is doing to the Gulf and our coastline.

Critical Mass New Orleans, bicyclists promoting alternatives to cars, will meet at Jackson Square at 6 p.m. Friday and ride into Jefferson Parish, ending on the Mississippi River levee. DJ Dontplaydat will provide tunes.

The ride will show cycling as a viable alternative for commuters, but all modes of non-polluting transportation are welcome. (Stinky feet are not considered pollution, so running, skateboarding, etc. are allowed.)
