Calling all Corvallis Bike Based Businesses!

[from Kim Thackray, Manager, SoupCycle Corvallis]
As a part of Car Free Day festivities (on September 22), SoupCycle would like to gather everyone in Corvallis that uses a bike as an integral part of their work.  No specific plans yet on what we will do, but it might include

  • parading together to the event in downtown Corvallis
  • signs or handouts celebrating our special type of business
  • demos, etc; SoupCycle will have a booth where we are giving out SoupSamples

If you fit this description, or know someone that does, please contact Kim at kim@soupcycle.com.  If we get enough interest, we’ll set up a Facebook event page to do some planning.

Event: Bike swap and sale, September 22

On Thursday September 22 (World Car Free Day!) from noon – 7 PM at Central Park (across from the library), there will be a bike swap and sale to benefit the Corvallis Bicycle Collective (CBC).

Do you have a bike that is languishing in your garage?  Maybe someone out there could put it to good use!  Drop off donations/consignments 11 am to 6 pm – including child & adult bikes, tricycles, trailers, etc. – CBC keeps 15% of sale price to handle transactions.

Contact: Rose Clarke at rose.madeline89@gmail.com or 541-224-6885 for more information.

Car-Free Day Corvallis: September 22

Update 8/23: Pledge to take part and help out by responding to this survey.

For some of us, every day is a car-free day.  For others, September 22 can act as a pledge to discover how to transport oneself without a car.  For more information, see the Corvallis Sustainability Coalition’s page.  On the morning of September 22, check in at sites around time to register for draw prizes.
