This year Action Reconciliation Service for Peace (ARSP) is celebrating 50 years of service here in the United States - and we are looking for people who want to join us on our 4th annual bike ride fundraiser. The proceeds support ARSP volunteers and programs, and also our 50th anniversary celebration this fall.
The Ride4Action led by experienced rider and US Program Director Mark McGuigan starts in Philadelphia on Saturday, May 5th, and leads to Washington, DC, via the Pennsylvania German countryside, covering roughly 250 miles. Riders have the option to join for "First Night Ride" or all 5 days.
Day 1 is a family-friendly ride from Philadelphia along the idyllic Schuylkill River Trail to French Creek State Park, the first overnight stop. Riders can join for any stretch of the ride and then turn around back to Philly or continue with the group for the entire 50 miles up to the campsite where the riders will tent out overnight (known as "First Night Ride").
Mark McGuigan and 8 ARSP volunteers will continue the ride to Washington D.C. the next day and hope you will join them.
Please register by April 23 at: info[at]actionreconciliation.org. Riders do not have to pay a registration fee but are asked to obtain financial pledges for their ride.
You will see pictures and video clips of the ride at: www.facebook.com/ARSPUSA.
We hope you will make a contribution to our Ride4Action!
