CHEYENNE, Wyo. — This June, climate advocate Bill Barron will embark on a 16-day, 1,200-mile cycling journey from Pablo, Montana, to Cheyenne.

Barron’s mission is to raise awareness about climate change, engage with local communities and discuss the economic benefits of transitioning to clean energy.

He will give a talk on Thursday, June 27 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Frontier Brewing Company, 150 W. 2nd St. in Casper. Barron will also host a meet-and-greet Friday, June 28 from 7:30 to 9 a.m. at the Bourgeois Pig Coffee Shop at 114 W. 2nd St. before continuing his bike tour.

As the Mountain West regional director for Citizens’ Climate Lobby, Barron has advocated for bipartisan climate solutions in the past.

“I’ve been deeply concerned about the increasing droughts, wildfires and extreme weather events driven by climate change and how these will impact my daughter’s future,” Barron said. “The world is now heating up 50 times faster than at any other period in history. This ride is about listening to the experiences of our neighbors and spreading the message that we have actionable solutions to protect our planet for future generations.”
