The RW24 has always been about building community. Every year the organizing team meets and debates and makes changes that attempt to move us closer to that core value. We keep old traditions and create new ones. We do our best to pull off this crazy project, to have a good time, and to remind each other what can get done as a ragtag group of unpaid organizers, riders, volunteers, and neighbors.
We have all spent the past 13 years getting ready for this moment.
*We will activate our volunteer base to support critical mutual aid projects happening in our city. We are good at turnout, wrangling, and directing people where to be. We will be listening to and supporting some incredibly inspiring people around the city who have their own projects already rolling. Projects that we hope will have a larger impact with your support.
Let’s focus our collective energy and skills on concrete help NOW where it is needed NOW. By harnessing the energy and passion of our riders and volunteers we can help our community with the many new challenges it faces.
Stay tuned as we release details about ways to put ourselves to work for health, safety, justice, and community, right here at home.
Until we meet again.
Be safe, be smart, think positive, and know that your RW24 organizing team loves you.
