Join us for the “Street Love Ride” – a 9 mile, 2 hour ride – on Aug. 15th to symbolize peace and unity in North Lawndale. This is more than a demonstration of peace; this ride is to show those on the streets some love – that there is a community ready to embrace them and healthy alternatives available.
We represent a positive community on two wheels, rolling through North Lawndale to share peace, love, and light.
This ride is for everyone – community members, peace activists, and bicycle enthusiasts…All are welcome!
The event will kick off with a community expo and cookout for North Lawndale residents and ride participants at 5pm at St. Agatha Catholic Church, 3147 W Douglas Blvd., Chicago (near Douglas and Kedzie). At 8pm we will begin our 9 mile bicycle journey through North Lawndale, ultimately circling back to St. Agatha Catholic Church where we will conclude with refreshments, a community discussion, and a call to action for us all to play a role in creating peace on our streets.
