The League of American Bicyclists decided to dedicate this year’s Congressional Bike Ride to Rep. Gabrielle Giffiords. On the last day of the National Bike Summit, a good portion of the 750 delegates to the Summit in Washington, D.C. met at the Capitol steps to ride about 10 miles through the city. The event started with a moment of silence for peace and for the congresswoman’s recovery. Participants received blue wrist bands with the message of a peace symbol, a heart and “Gabby.”
The ride honors Rep. Giffords as well as those killed in the Tucson shooting. Congresswoman Giffords is a regular rider and a member of the Congressional Bike Caucus.
Grace. Peace. Bicycle Grease.
PS: Remember, every lane is a bike lane.
Share the road.
