Moving Planet DuPage
Join us this Saturday, September 24 for a major environmental event in Villa Park. Moving Planet is a day of celebrating biking and walking as ways of moving past fossil fuel for a cool and clean planet. Bicycle riders and walkers from around the county will travel to Rugaard Gazebo in Villa Park for music, food, speakers and a group photo at 1:45 pm. Riders can stop at stations along the Illinois Prairie Path in Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, Lombard and Elmhurst to pick up streamers for their handle bars and numbers for their jerseys as we shoot for 350 bikers and riders supporting alternative transportation.
Glen Ellyn Cool Cities supports Moving Planet, which is sponsored by 350.org and the Sierra Club.
