Photo Gallery: Ferndale Green Cruise Leaves the Gasoline at Home
Friends of the environment were on hand Saturday for the Ferndale Green Cruise.
Organizations, businesses, bike enthusiasts and environment watchdogs were on hand Saturday for Ferndale's Green Cruise, which took place in the "Green Alley" behind the north West Nine Mile businesses, near Planavon.
"We like going green," Said Cario Miller, who brought his son to the Green Cruise.
Families, couples, riders of bikes and non-motorized scooters, roller bladers and roller skaters hung out from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
"This is a great event," said David Levine.
Levine lives with his family in Red Hook, NY, but was in town visiting his wife's family in Huntington Woods.
"This is phenomenal. We live in a rural area in Red Hook, near Bard College, and there aren't sidewalks for bike riding, to do that sort of thing. So this is great," he said.
Tents set up in the "Green Alley" belonged to organizations such as the Sierra Club, which sponsored the event, along with the Ferndale Environmental Sustainability Commission. Other vendors included Western Market and Garden Fresh Gourmet.
The Downtown Ferndale Bike Shop also on hand for the event, set up wooden ramps for bike riders to use for jumps and tricks.
