All are welcome!

About Grassroutes Caravan
The GRC has been part of the Madison activist scene since 2007 when some peeps at the Madison Infoshop came up with the idea of organizing a mobile village to travel by bicycle to the Republican National Convention being held in St. Paul in 2008.
We planned for over a year to recruit riders into our intentional mobile community and to make sure we would all have ample healthy food, places to stay and places to do volunteer service and perform. We traveled for thirteen days and twelve nights together in our village to St. Paul.
August 2012 marks the 5 year anniversary of this bike activist institution and the accomplishment of four large rides since 2008. For this reason, the elves at Grassroutes Caravan central are putting together a wonderful full moon night of reuniting and signing thank you cards for all the rad local businesses that have supported the Grassroutes Caravan through the years.
