ANN ARBOR, MI — Ann Arbor is on a mission to achieve community-wide carbon-neutrality by 2030 and part of that means getting more people out of cars and onto bicycles.

To commemorate the two-year anniversary of the city’s A2Zero carbon-neutrality plan, Ann Arbor’s sustainability office is celebrating A2Zero Week June 5–11, with a series of educational activities and community gatherings.

The festivities continue with a cargo bike rally and bike repair clinic at the Ann Arbor Farmers Market in Kerrytown from 6-9 p.m. Monday, June 6.

“Join us for a fun and informative cargo bike rally,” the city website states. “Cargo bike owners are encouraged to come share their experiences and talk about how they’ve reduced their carbon footprint through riding their cargo bike. Urban Rider Cargo Bikes will have various bike models on hand to test drive, Common Cycle will be hosting a bike fix-it work shop, and ice cream treats from Washtenaw Dairy will be available!”

Other activities planned through the rest of the week include a celebration of local food, “Fall of the Earth” climate-altered beer tasting, climate trivia night at Conor O’Neill’s, an electric vehicle demonstration outside the downtown library, waste audits, a rain garden workday at Buhr Park and more, with the Mayor’s Green Fair happening 6-9 p.m. Friday, June 10.
