Hi from Denver, home of the National Democratic Party Convention. Is anyone is planning on coming here to use the Voice of the Pedal People to share a vision of peace with the candidates? If you are, lets have a picnic! We could gather at Confluence park or City Park, Or Washington (he used armed force against farmers!) Park. Or we could do a tour of all three with big bright peace signs. The last thing we had like this in Denver was the G8 summitt, and it was, well, lets just say that the streets were cleared of the usual "Anything Helps" sign corner fundraisers. So, use the buddy system, keep your camera ready, and lets have some fun for PEACE! Art

We're callingthe ride the GrassRoutes Caravan, as we'll be hooking up with variousgrassroots organizations along our route, doing volunteer work andlearning about regional struggles.Madison is holding a counter-convention to the Republican and DemocratNational Conventions. It's called the People's Networking Convention(PNC), and it's going down August 15-17th. The GrassRoutes Caravanwill link the PNC to the RNC. Check out more about the PNC and theCaravan at:www.infopnc.org -- People's Networking Conventionwww.pnc2rnc.org -- GrassRoutes CaravanWe're super-excited about the GrassRoutes Caravan! It's sort of a mixbetween the Democracy Uprising DNC2RNC march in 2004, work done by theSuperHeroes collective, cycle circuses everywhere, a mobile version ofBurning Man, and everything in-between! We just published a zineabout our vision -- find it to download online. We welcome any input,advice, or bike travel hints you may have.I invite y'all, and yer bikes, to the Midwest this August for ourmobile village of resistance!
