A 450-mile bicycle ride protesting the BP Oil Spill.
The 2010 BP Oil Spill negatively effected our world. In response, I rode my bike round-trip from Portland to Port Townsend to protest, to discover what it means to be green, and to see if it is possible (and worthwhile) to go beyond petroleum.
I had to go to Port Townsend, Washington for a week-long college residency and then return home to Portland, Oregon. In the past, I carpooled or took public transportation. After the BP Oil Spill, I rode my bike round-trip and documented the journey in this blog/website.
According to Google maps, the route was 225 miles each way with a mixture of highly trafficked and less populated roads. It was roughly the distance from New York City to Boston.
