More about the Tour for the Shore and how to participate is below:
To help raise public awareness and participation for the Clean Ocean Zone, traveling by outrigger canoe and bicycle at the peak of the summer season, Margo Pellegrino and Sean Dixon will journey concurrently from Cape May, New Jersey to Montauk, New York. Participation in the tour from coalition organizations, businesses, and individuals is essential. To that end, over the course of the tour, rallies, and campaign and media events will be held to garner support from elected officials and citizens.
Departing on August 10th, 2012, our paddlers and pedalers will head north on a 15-day adventure! YOU are encouraged to join up by land or by sea – check back here (or sign up for alerts) to find out how to participate.
Overall, there will be THREE ways to take part in this Tour for the Shore:
- On the water: join Margo Pellegrino at sea as she paddles in her outrigger canoe up the coast – if you’ve got (or can rent) a canoe, stand-up-paddleboard, or an ocean rower, consider joining!
- On the road: join Clean Ocean Action attorney Sean Dixon on your bike as he tours the Jersey and Long Island Shore communities – some days will be great for families (less than 40 miles), others will be for more adventurous cyclists (more than 80 miles!) – including a Long Island Century Ride leaving Babylon, NY the morning of the 24th at 6am!
- On land: join us at any of our ~30 rallies along the shore (check back for details beyond the township locations listed below), or help us spread the word as part of a “Beach Team” – roving our coastal beaches getting the word out about the ocean!
- Make a Crowdrise team to raise money for your journey by land or by sea!
