Made-in-Alberta Newsletter June 5, 2010

Saturday June 5, 2010

Hello Made-in-Alberta Friends and Supporters. Some community events over the next week ...

Community Notice! Eco-Solar Home Tour is tomorrow – Saturday, June 5
Saturday June 5 is the 11th annual Eco-Solar Home Tour. Between noon and 4:00 PM, five Edmonton homes and buildings are open to the public for self-guided, drop-in tours. These buildings feature solar power and hot-water heating, geothermal, energy and water efficiency, combined heat and power and more. Visit for all the details.

Edmonton’s Bike Month is Underway! Here’s what’s coming up June 7 to 13...
Join Barb and the Bikeology Gears at Metro Cinema on Monday evening for the first Bikeology Movie Monday, featuring “The Quiet Man”. (No Barb’s Bike Shorts this week due to the length of the feature. Also, the movies are screened at the Rice Theatre, downstairs in the Citadel, this year.) Tuesday, visit Credo Café and join the Bike Dialogue about racing. On Thursday, swing by the north-end of the High Level Bridge for a free mocktail and socializing, then head over to Harcourt House for Bicycle Jewelry Making. On Friday from 7 – 9 AM the mobile Bike2Work Breakfast is at Churchill Square, and they’ll be serving up pancakes. The annual 24-hour bike repair-a-thon at EBC’s Bikeworks runs from noon on Saturday to noon on Sunday. Finally on Sunday afternoon there is a Polo Velo tournament at Ritchie Community Hall that you can join in or just watch (if you’re not entirely sure what this is ;). Check out the Google Calendar on for addresses, times, more details. Read event blogs on the home page.

Barb’s Field Notes – Bike the Tour!
The lovely folks who put on the Eco-Solar Home Tour have put together two of my favourite things. In honour of Edmonton’s Bike Month, they have created a special map of the tour just for cyclists. To download the map, click this link. (Give it a moment to load.)   See you out there!
