With oil spills in the news and May being National Bike Month, the Sierra Club is putting on a bike haiku contest. The poet winner will receive a brand-new Breezer Uptown 8 bicycle. Runners-up will get a Kryptonite lock and a Nutcase helmet. A panel of bike-commuting Sierra Club staffers will pick the finalists and the winner will be selected by Congressman Earl Blumenauer of Oregon, founder of the Congressional Bicycle Caucus. All you have to do is: join the Bicycle group on Climate Crossroads (www.climatecrossroads.org) , Sierra Club’s social network on climate; post a picture to the group’s gallery; write a haiku about your bike and/or bike commuting.
Deadline to enter is May 31 at noon PST.Â Thanks to Brian for the tip!
