Pedaling for peace

Fourteen bicyclists from Iran who are criss-crossing the United States with a message of peace will make their final U.S. stop at the Washington National Cathedral on July 11, according to a story in Episcopal Life Online.

Episcopal Diocese of Washington Bishop John Bryson Chane is scheduled to greet the women and men who comprise the Miles for Peace group at 3:15 p.m. on the steps of the cathedral’s west end (Wisconsin Avenue side).

The Miles for Peace program is a non-profit, non-governmental peace campaign whose objective is to convey the message of peace, friendship and peaceful co-existence with all nations.

John Peterson, the cathedral’s director of the Center for Global Justice and Reconciliation, called the visit another positive event in U.S.-Iran relations.
