JOURNEY TOWARDS A
Pennsylvania Interfaith Power & Light 2022 Bike/Hike for Climate Justice
ABOUT THE BIKE/HIKE
This Year in Pennsylvania! The annual PA IPL Climate Advocacy Bike Ride to the US Capitol has been re-imagined as a biking & hiking tour of Pennsylvania's trails. The various bike routes will bear witness to our extractive past and present while nurturing and rooting hope for a cleaner future to grow across our state.
This year’s ride will take place directly following the national Interfaith Power & Light’s annual conference. Our hope is to recruit 100 bikers and hikers to participate in this year’s event.
