Bike Around the Bomb – Sunday, August 9th

Hi everyone. We are going to have some Véloteers participating in Bike Around the Bomb on August 9th. The event is open to the public so feel free to join us. It’s a moderately paced, non-stop, police escorted ride through downtown DC. Plus you get a free T shirt! It starts at 10am at Lafayette Park (in front of the Casa de Obama).

Email us at spokeperson at velocitycoop dot org if you want to coordinate with the Véloteers that are going, and we will put you in touch with the right people.

From the organizers’ website:

“What would a nuclear blast look like in downtown Washington, D.C.?

Join Global Zero on the 70th anniversary of the atomic bombings of Japan as we cycle what would be the edge of a “small” nuclear blast in downtown D.C. and call on President Obama to keep his promise to “seek the peace and security of a world without nuclear weapons.”

The event will be one of many corresponding events around the world, serving as a powerful reminder that nuclear weapons were designed to wipe cities like ours off the map.

When: Sunday, August 9th,10:00 am

Where: Lafayette Park, in front of the White House

All participants will receive a free Global Zero t-shirt. Be sure to join us after the ride for a complimentary drink!

Bike Around the Bomb (BAB) is free, open to the public, and will bring everyone from Global Zero movement leaders to brand new activists together to urge world leaders to remember and to act.
