Earth Day 2016

At OYM, we're all about reconnecting with the earth in healthy ways. Participating in local bike-to-work days and trail clean-ups are among our favorite #teamOYMbike group activities.

If you've spent any time training with us outdoors, you REALLY know how much we LOVE the earth; we're always running on it, biking through it and swimming in it! In the shop, we do our best to carry products that are either biodegradable or made in sustainable ways.

Let us know if you hear of any other earth-friendly cool stuff out there!

Interested in the history of Earth Day? According to earthday.org, the first Earth Day on April 22, 1970 activated 20 million Americans and is widely credited with launching the modern environmental movement including passage of the landmark Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and the Endangered Species Act. Many other groundbreaking environmental laws soon followed.
Twenty years later, Earth Day went global, mobilizing 200 million people in 141 countries and lifting environmental issues onto the world stage. More than 1 billion people now participate in Earth Day activities each year, making it the largest civic observance in the world. Take action now -- or any day of the year -- by joining Earth Day Network's "Billion Acts of Green." 

Love, Peace and Bicycle Grease,

Matt & Julie
