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.

Attendees should RSVP so businesses know how many people to expect. You can also support the effort financially or volunteer to help out.

More details from InGaj:


Economic reform for Black people


  • Recruit a critical mass of mission aligned demonstrators on bikes

  • Take routes through historically Black neighborhoods, landmarks, and points of interest

  • Support Black owned businesses at the start, along the way, and at the completion of each route

  • Repeat


Please join us for a rain or shine, “no drop”, casual, 10 mile ride/demonstration on bicycles through Seattle neighborhoods in support of Black-owned businesses and enterprises.
