Peace Peloton event poster: Economic reform for Black people. Join us for a peaceful demonstration on bicycles in support of the Black owned businesses. The second Peace Peloton ride starts 10 a.m. Saturday at Tougo Coffee on Yesler Way near Broadway. Organized by Doc Wilson, the first Peace Peloton drew more than 300 people for a ride from Alki to the CD. Wilson hopes to host the rides weekly.

Saturday’s ride will go through Yesler Terrace, downtown, Lower Queen Anne, South Lake Union Capitol Hill and the Central District. Organizers ask that you fill out an anonymous RSVP so they can give businesses a heads up on how many people might show up.
