About this coop:

Summer 2012 - a group of people will bike across the U.S. together to build momentum for the co-operative movement. Through workshops and public events, Co-Cycle encourages the communities it travels through to take notice, ask questions, and seek out connections with their own local co-ops. The journey will start in San Francisco and proceed across the northern U.S., concluding in western Massachusetts. The documentary, To The Moon, following their journey will use the specific lens of the co-operative movement to demonstrate how much our young generation is capable of achieving. It will highlight the importance of dedication, innovation, and teamwork in order to make sustainable change for the future.
