LowCarbon Crossings:  A 4,000 mile, 79-day Cross-Country Journey for Climate Action

Image File Missing:


Hear about Mindy’s LowCarbon Crossings (LCC), a 4,000-mile bike tour from Seaside, Oregon to Washington, DC.  LCC riders travelled through 13 states on the northern tier of America to raise awareness and inspire action on Climate Change Solutions.

Mindy has just returned from DC, delivering messages from people in the 13 states the LCC passed through with her ride partners Ryan Hall and Paul Thompson.

Presentation includes photos, video and stories from the journey and a discussion of how we all can take positive action to address our changing climate.
