Bike Tour


As part of Energy Awareness Month, the New York Public Interest Research Group (NYPIRG) and other environmental and civic organizations are organizing a statewide bike tour to raise awareness about the need to take action against global warming now.

As part of the bike tour, we are greeting the riders in locations around the state by holding public tour stops. At each stop, we will invite the media and call for strong reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, more clean energy such as wind and solar, and increased efforts toward energy conservation and efficiency.

Please come out (and bring others) to one of the following tour stops near you to show your support for our message.
