Saturday: Peace Peloton rides from Amy’s Merkato to Island Soul

Peace Peloton event poster. Details in the post.Mmmmm. Island Soul. People don’t usually come to Seattle Bike Blog for restaurant reviews, but Island Soul is just so good.

The Peace Peloton rides Saturday from Amy’s Merkato Ethiopian & Eritrean Restaurant in Hillman City and Deli to Island Soul in Columbia City, traveling to the Central District and other neighborhoods along the way.

Led by Doc Wilson of InGaj, the Peace Peloton rides to demonstrate support for Black-owned businesses and promote economic reform for Black people.
