Teel Gordon, Lucy Kramer and Sarah Marshall--The Mendo Maidens--join Alicia to talk about Bike Advocacy and an exciting upcoming Ride they're organizing to SF to raise awareness about Bike Infrastructure in Mendocino County.

At 52:00 Alicia talks with Jennifer Moore, lead attorney in the lawsuit Hardeman vs. Monstano, which this week won a historic ruling against the biotech giant for $80 million in damages, a six-member jury unanimously finding Roundup/glyphosate causes cancer and that Monsanto lied about it.

More about the Mendo Maidens here:

You're invited to party with the Mendo Maidens!

 Come ride and celebrate the start of our journey with us!

 The Mendo Maidens are hosting a short community ride at 5pm on Tuesday April 23rd from NCO and will end at Ukiah Brewing Company at 6pm for a send off party!

 If you're not familiar with what we're up to-

 The Mendo Maidens will ride bikes from Ukiah to San Francisco to raise money for bike infrastructure in Mendocino county and for the joy of the ride. The Mendo Maidens are fundraising for permanent bike repair stations that include a bike stand, tools, and an air pump along with bike parking racks to install around Mendocino County. We are placing stations inland and on the coast.

 Additionally, we are raising resources for securing bikes for people in need with any additional money raised.

 This project, and the bike group The Mendo Maidens, sprung from the imagination of 3 young women participating in Leadership Mendocino this year. Teel Gordon, Sarah Marshall, and Lucy Kramer love riding bikes and wanted to create a project that increases bike safety, bike tourism and helps promote bike culture in Mendocino County while also having a heck of a good time!

 We are a month out from the ride and are already at 70% of our goal- help us fill up the very top of the thermometer!

 Ukiah Brewing Company is generously donating all proceeds from beer pitcher sales to our fundraiser, so please grab a pitcher to share with friends when you come to the party.
