to pick up litter while biking.
How it works:
- Gather at Bike Newport HQ between 10-11am, collect cleanup tools, enjoy local treats, register for prizes.
- Bike around town, to the beach, or to a park to pick up litter.
- Bring your litter back to Bike Newport HQ in your backpack. We will sort & weigh all collected litter.
- Everyone must return by 2pm latest.
What you need to bring:
- Your bike, helmet, and a backpack or pannier.
Would you rather participate on foot? You can plalk (pick up litter while walking) or plog (pick up litter while jogging)
What we will provide:
- Cleanup supplies: gloves, reusable bags to line your backpack, map of heavily-littered areas
- Fuel! Coffee & pastries
- Water-filling station
- Go at your own pace – this is not a race!
- Masks are required.
- We will ensure COVID compliance with hand sanitizing and 6-ft social distancing.
- If you don’t have a bike and would like one, consider getting one from Bike Newport’s Adopt-A-Bike program a few weeks ahead of time. Contact Allyson (email@example.com) to learn more!
If you have any questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org
