A group of approximately 15 young people from across the country are pedalling into the Comox Valley this Wednesday.

As part of an Odyssey from Sept. 7 to Oct. 28, they are performing a play entitled Cycling Through Change in communities along the way. They are volunteers on the West Coast Tour, a team of ambassadors for environmental sustainability and social justice on wheels, organized by national charity The Otesha Project. Starting in Vancouver, moving into the lower mainland, back to Vancouver and up the Sunshine Coast, over to Vancouver Island and down to Victoria, They’re cycling over 1,000 kilometres of hilly coastal terrain. They are armed with an inspiring message: you and I can create extraordinary change through the power of our daily actions.

The comedic and inspiring play shows the story of average Canadians who are choosing to be extraordinary. Over 4,000 audience members will get to explore what ignites individuals to take action, and what challenges and rewards are encountered along the way. The members of the traveling theatre troupe strive to model a mobile sustainable community, cycling from town to town, and opening conversations along the way about how we can be agents of change in our day-to-day lives.
