First, the "Alley Cat" bike ride Start/Finish at Ave of Champions and S. Limestone (11AM to 1PM):

Part scavenger hunt, part tour and part rally it will include stops at sites that exemplify the best and worst of Lexington’s carbon heritage. Kiosks will offer information about these climate "hotspots" and suggest ways to effect positive change. Participants will evaluate Lexington's ride-ability and offer suggestions for improving it.

Lots of random groups and individuals are pulling this together so please go out and show some support.

Rest of the day details.
Saturday, September 24 · 11:00am - 5:00pm

Limestone between Euclid and Pheonix Park (plus various other locations)

More Info
MOVING KY is Lexington’s contribution to a worldwide rally on September 24th, 2011 called Moving Planet (http://www.moving-planet.org/). This rally will shine a light on solutions to the climate crisis, direct those who desire further education, and offer our concerned community an opportunity to gather. It will be a single day to move away from fossil fuels and bring our collective attention to the challenge.

COME ON your bike, on skates, on a board, or on foot. Come with your neighbors and your friends, your family and your co-workers. Come be part of something huge. It's time to get moving on the climate crisis.

CHECK OUT the day's itinerary at http://www.movingky.org/ and ORDER A TSHIRT for the photoshoot!


PLUS a Lexington encore screening of the internationally-acclaimed documentary CARBON NATION, by Louisville filmmaker Peter Byck, at the Lexington Public Library!
Billed as "a climate change SOLUTIONS movie (that doesn't even care if you believe in climate change)," CARBON NATION portrays an optimism and pragmatism which are appealing across the political spectrum. While other good films have been about problems, blame and guilt, CARBON NATION is a film that celebrates solutions, inspiration and action. And the film is making news from London to LA for this fresh and upbeat approach.

++ MOVING KY/MOVING PLANET + Carbon Nation Screening!
++ WHEN: Saturday, September 24, 11 am - 5 pm
++ WHERE: Start at Euclid and Limestone •
++++ 11:00 am: ALLEY CAT Bike Ride
++++ 1:15 pm: Walk downtown to Phoenix Park/Lexington Public Library for a group photo and screening of CARBON NATION documentary.
++ MORE INFORMATION: http://www.movingky.org/

NOTE: This encore CARBON NATION screening is expected to be a full house. Reception for the film has been tremendous, drawing huge crowds at screenings
across the country and around the world. Directly following the film will be a Q&A discussion with the filmmaker.

These quotes from Carbon Nation help illustrate the tone of the film:

++ “Do I think Man is causing global warming? No, but that doesn’t make any difference. I want clean water and I want clean air. And that’s so simple.” THE WILD ALASKAN

++ “Climate change in fact is a national security issue. This is no longer the purview of Birkenstock-wearing tree huggers. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.” THE ARMY COLONEL

++ “So if you don’t give a damn about the environment, do it because you’re a greedy bastard and you just want cheap power.” THE BIOCHEMICAL ENGINEER
