We are asking people to pay
Any money and non perishable foods left over from the catering
will be donated to anti nuclear campaigns around the Australia
$30 up front to go on the ride. (This is to help fund all
the organisation required before the ride.)
$12 per day for food and for petrol for the support vehicle
$300 dollars minimum (25 days) before 19 May, or the full
amount for the period you will be on the ride if it is less than 25 days.
This money will be used to pay for non-perishable foods to be purchased
before the start of the ride.
All food prepared by the cycle will be Vegetarian or
Vegan for three reasons:
But we encourage anyone, vegetarian or not, to be involved.
currently most of the people definitely coming on CANC 2
are vegetarian or vegan anyway;
we won't have any way to store meat in the heat of the tropics
most of aspects of the meat industry are not environmentally
We will have a support vehicle to carry food, water,
campaign materials and other general equipment.
You have to carry all your own things (see the web page
after 1 April for more detail on what you need)
People will have to make their own way to where they join
the ride and where they leave, but closer to the starting date we may be
able to organise car pooling or a group booking on a bus or air line.
|Also any of the people interested in
the ride who live in Sydney, it would be great to see you at the
meeting this Sunday the 19th of March, at the Wilderness Society,
level 1, 263 Broadway, Glebe.|
|If else has time to devote to the
setting up of the ride, please let me know. We urgently need
assistance with letter writing to sponsors and many other things.
