Free the Slaves Freedom Ride!

July 30th is World Day Against Trafficking in Persons, a day we set aside to remember and stand in solidarity with victims of human trafficking and modern day slavery. This year, Free the Slaves is hosting a Freedom Ride to commemorate the day, raise funds to fight trafficking, and spread awareness about the issue.

The event will be held at the Logan Circle Zengo Cycle from 3:00 to 3:50pm, and all proceeds will go to Free the Slaves. Ethical fashion brand Senhoa will be there too selling jewelry after the ride until 4:30!

We hope you can make it out for this fun event, but if you are unable to come, you can still contribute to the cause by “donating” a bike! Simply follow the link below to reserve a space, but register the name as “Donation.” 🙂

For more information, and to reserve your bike, follow this link:

How to Begin Commuting by Bicycle

Hello all,

I’ve been entertaining this idea that I might like to start commuting to work by bicycle. I work fairly long hours and I love seeing daylight in the mornings and evenings; additionally, I’d love to incorporate more exercise into my everyday life.

However, a few things are getting in my way. One, I am not familiar with bike-riding in the city and after reading RRRR, I’m terrified I’ll be killed by a rogue car. Two, I live in Park View and work in Crystal City. I mapped the commute and it’s about 7 miles, including crossing the Potomac. For someone who is fairly out of shape, this seems rather daunting.

Does anyone out there have any advice on how to start this kind of lifestyle change?
