    I assume that carbon bikes are not allowed to participate.

    Do any of your retro-grouch bikes actually have zero plastic on them? My son’s recently acquired 80s Trek road bike seems to have at least a few plastic bits on it.

    Before we get too distracted, this is about single use bottles, etc, that are now a huge pollution hazard, not your structural plastics...

    Forget plastics, the biggest pollution from a peloton are those little foil goo dispensers and all the damn banana peels.

    Regardless of what your bike or bike components are made of, single use plastics such as water bottles are one of the largest threats to our global environment. They end up in landfills, along the trail sides that we clean (Freezing Saddles trail clean up crew), itís what we ship to Southeast Asia to recycle on our behalf, itís the main component of Trash Island in the Pacific Ocean, and it is the microplastics that now litter our bodies. This film highlights the urgency on the elimination and reduction of single use plastics in an area mostly impacted by the effects. Iím curious to see the intersection of this global issue and cycling. Come check out the film and letís discover together!
