Another Crazy Bike Ride for Charity Stops by Baltimore


Last month, we reported on a group of women who took on an intense, 365-mile bike tour of Maryland to raise money (and awareness) for the Baltimore-based charity World Relief. But that group wasn’t the only one to put its thigh-strength to work for a good cause; yesterday, the 5 Gyres Last Straw Plastic Pollution Solutions Bike Tour passed through Baltimore on its triumphant 1400-mile (!!) bike ride to raise awareness of how much plastic clogs our beaches, rivers, and oceans. So, no, even if they get REALLY thirsty, they’re not drinking out of plastic water bottles.
