JOIN TEAM EUGENE for the: Bike to PIELC Challenge
Because you love biking, because you love challenges, because you want to attend the 29th annual Public Interest Environmental Law Conference. Help us reduce the carbon footprint for PIELC. Bike the 140 miles or get a partner and split up the ride. New to biking? It really isn’t that bad. We promise.
Bike to Eugene Challenge is a one-day, 140 mile bike ride from Portland to Eugene in honor of the 29th annual Public Interest Environmental Law Conference at the University of Oregon. Our team is a coalition of Lewis & Clark Law students dedicated to public interest environmentalism, to biking, and to challenges. The purpose of the ride is to reduce our carbon footprint by opting to travel to the largest environmental law conference in the world, twelve hours by bicycle, instead of two hours by car.
The Bike to Eugene Challenge proposes, to ourselves and our communities, a greater sense of personal accountability for environmental harms. Our team also wants to celebrate biking, both for the pure joys of biking, and as a tool to reduce our carbon footprint. Our motto this year is “bike more, drive less.”
All levels of cycling experience are welcome to bike all or some of the one-day, 140 mile, fully-supported ride from Portland to Eugene (see photos from last year’s gallant journey). Optional training rides begin Jan 21.
