The Peace Peloton rides Saturday from The Station coffee shop near Beacon Hill light rail station to Maple Wood Playfield in South Beacon Hill.
Meet at The Station from 10 to noon, then ride all over Beacon Hill and Rainier Valley before ending in the park. Food trucks Al’s Gourmet Sausages and Swagg-N-Wagon will be there for snacks and such.
The Peace Peloton is a growing and expanding effort to ride bikes, learn about economic reform for Black people and support businesses owned by Black and brown people. Watch the video above for more insight into the mission.
RSVP online if you plan to attend so organizers and businesses can be better prepared.
In other exciting news, Peace Peloton organizer Doc Wilson told the Cascade Blog that organizers are planning the first Tacoma Peace Peloton August 9.
