Eco Lips Hosts 1st Annual Earth Day Bike Ride & Celebration

Cedar Rapids, Iowa (April, 23rd 2011) Eco Lips, America’s premium organic lip balm company, announces the first ever Eco Lips Earth Day Bike Ride & Celebration. This event will be held on Saturday, April 23rd, 2011 at Sokol Park in Cedar Rapids, IA on the corner of 16th Ave. and A St. SW. We invite the public to celebrate Mother Earth along with a variety of local eco-friendly organizations that will be exhibiting with us in the park. Come out and enjoy the outdoors on Earth Day. There is no cost to participate.
The event will begin Saturday at noon with the fifty-five mile Sport ride. The seventeen mile Casual route leaves at 2:00pm and the seven mile Family ride begins at 3:00pm. Each route will follow the Cedar River Trail-South to start and all routes return to Sokol Park to continue the celebration. Route maps will be provided at Sokol Park and signage will be posted along the route. IRENEW will be providing some emergency rider support using their bio-diesel truck, but we suggest that riders prepare for a self-supported ride by carrying plenty of water and supplies as assistance may not be available. If you choose not to ride, come out and enjoy the afternoon in the park with us anyway!
“We started this event to raise awareness in our community about challenges we face as a planet, and to recognize the local organizations that are practicing sustainable choices,” says Eco Lips CEO, Mark Patterson. “Combining a bike ride and an Earth Day celebration is a natural fit with our passion for promoting the active-organic lifestyle” he added.
Activities in Sokol Park include exhibitors from local earth-friendly organizations, games and activities for children, and music by DJ Slim Pickens from 3:00-7:00pm. Food and beer will be available for purchase.
We invite adults to continue the celebration after the ride at Parlor City Pub & Eatery, 1125 3rd Street in Cedar Rapids. There will be live music from 8:00 p.m. to midnight, food and drink specials, and a raffle for prizes. Please visit www.earthdaybikeride.com for event information.
