Cross-Country Trip June 5-August 15
Join us from June 5 through August 15, 2006, as we ride to speak out for an end to the Iraq War and a safe return for our military men and women. Starting in Seattle and riding across the U.S. to Washington D.C, we will ride to increase public awareness about the Bush Administrationís continued lack of support for veterans, now with the closing of much needed healthcare facilities across the U.S. We will ride peacefully and purposefully into red states to educate the public about the costs of this war and the ill-informed methods used for recruitment. This route is more than a trans-continental route; it is an arduously epic journey of intrepid riders set out to break the cycle of the war mentality and unchain the power of Peace!
