MUSCLE POWERED’S FIRST TRASH MOB A GREAT SUCCESS

“Trash Mob” a monthly event with the goal of keeping local walking and biking paths clear of trash.The idea behind Trash Mobs is similar to the popular flash mobs where a group of people gather in a public place and perform some pre-arranged task for a brief time before dispersing. Trash Mobs will involve collecting trash at a designated location for one hour. Trash collection will make the area safer and healthier for walking, biking and recreation.

To get the Trash Mob notice on your Facebook timeline, just “like” any of the following Facebook pages; Muscle Powered, Carson City Parks and Recreation, Carson Proud, Carson City Chamber of Commerce, Visit Carson City, or Carson City Public Works.

Please see a full article and photographs on http://www.carsonnow.org and search for volunteers

Multimodal to Carson. Nice!

“[When it’s windy]… it seems the hills grow higher and the winds are in your FACE no matter which way you turn. How is that possible?!” – Deirdre (muttering to herself on the way home yesterday evening.)

“I had to ride a zig-zag pattern going block by block to try to avoid the wind.”
– Jen K.
