Biking for Climate Justice 2pm - 5 pm.

We will be making the 34 mile round trip journey to the Pine Bend (Koch) Refinery in Rosemount:

We will be riding under the banner of "We are biking for our Children's future."

When we get to the Pine Bend Refinery, the third largest emitter of green house gases in the State of Minnesota, we will gather at Gate 5 and bikers will get a chance to read their testimonials about why they have made the ride and what Climate Change means to them, their families, their communities.
