Sustainable Living Center Event Series Starts Off with an Adventure

RE Sources’ 2011 Sustainable Living Center Event Series kicked off with the first presentation in the, “See the World by Bicycle," adventure slide show series, Thursday, January 13th. The series is co-hosted by RE Sources and everbodyBIKE.

Greg's Bike
Thursday's event was a scintillating peak into the voyage of two brave folks, Vic Hubbard, the Community Food Co-op wine master, and Diane Brainerd, owner of the Old Town Café. The pair shared tips and highlights of touring by bicycle from Barcelona, Spain to Leone, France in five weeks.  Complete with airfare secrets and touring tips. The slide show left the audience feeling inspired and empowered.



We also heard from custom steel bike builder, Greg Heath, of Donkelope Bikes.   Greg shared with us his creativity and passion for fabricating frames, forks, stems, racks, and more. Check out his blog.
 
And last, but not least, Ken Rasmussen, shared with us the art and history of vintage bicycles. The Pedersen model, to the right, was created with a hammock sling for a seat! For more info, visit his website

Don't miss the next slide show! We'll be diving into The Netherlands and Belgium with Cindy and Therese Kelliher, and northern Oregon, with Scott Dorough. Thursday, February 10th, 7pm-9pm at the Sustainable Living Center, (above the RE Store) 2309 Meridian St. For more info, contact HannahC@re-sources.org, 360.733.8307.
