Greetings Earth Dwellers!
We will leave Stevens Point on Monday Sept. 10th at 10:00 a.m. from the Stevens Point Down town square on Main Street (where the farmers market is), and bike a total of 180 miles to the Twin Cities in Minnesota for the Anarchist book fair and week o' action!
The first day we will bike about 35 miles, and the next days will be 50, 50, and 45 miles approximately (never more than 55 miles in a day)! The return bike ride will leave Monday Sept. 17th, and arrive Friday Sept. 21st (projected); this will be the same path and same distance unless we collectively decide otherwise (or just go and do your own thing:))
We can help with arranging bikes and bike maintenance/bike maintenance workshops before hand, but you will need to be prepared to carry your own sleeping gear, clothes and some snacks (as well as divvying-up some of the food between us) for the ride; we are currently not solidifying a support vehicle for this ride. We look to fundraise and make a comprehensive and user-friendly zine complete with directions, articles on anarchy, etc. If you believe in the ability of a community to self-organize, and the freedom to live the way you desire, you embody some kind of anarchy... anarchy doesn't mean chaos for me and many folks, it simply means no rulers, no hierarchy! So you are invited to be a part of our intentional community where we make decisions based consensus, and host a rad bike ride asserting our general rights to be. If you want more info, and/or want to get on the conference call, please e-mail:
There will be some sort of "points-of-agreement" that is written-up by all involved parties, as well rider application; this will be an inclusive and creative process! If some of us are on radically different pages, then there is nothing wrong with multiple bike ride contingents... in fact that could be awesome!
Thanks for your time, rad cats! Yow!:)Let's organize together!
Peas, Love, and the Beauty of Self-Organizing,
