Rides to Moving Planet will start from all over the city Saturday

Before the Safe Streets Social Saturday, South Lake Union Park will be taken over by folks dedicated to moving beyond fossils fuels.

Moving Planet will take place all over the world, and the Seattle event will go all day in South Lake Union Park. The lineup includes a line-up of workshops, activities and speakers. There’s a rally at 2 p.m. and a big photo shoot for 350.org at 3.

To get people in the “moving beyond fossil fuels” mood, bike rides starting from many points of the city will converge on the park Saturday morning. Here’s a list of known rides starting in a neighborhood near you:

*Allyson Welsh and Albert Meerscheidt leave Capitol Hill’s Cal Anderson Park at 9:45 am. Because it is such a short ride, the group may circle the lake before stopping at Moving Planet Seattle. http://www.cascade.org/EandR/Activities_Calendar_RDetail.cfm?eventID=16442
