The Montclair Bikery was bustling on Sunday morning as 26 green-backed cyclists and their crew made a rolling pit-stop in the shop for bagels, coffee, and talk about the gun reforms they are asking of the US Congress. The Sandy Hook Ride on Washington (SHROW) had arrived!

IMG_1062Herb Jimenez, who rode with Team 26 last year as well, wanted to see if a Montclair stop would be feasible this year. When he reached out to  Dave Adornato, the owner of Montclair Bikery happily offered to host. A team from Montclair Bikery had already ridden a part of the way during last year’s trek, and they cycled with the SHROW from Montclair to Morristown again this year.

While the group of cyclists has some specific goals for Congress, the ride — or “Rolling Rally” — is also about raising awareness and inspiring the public to raise their voices and awareness to encourage action from Congress. Monte Frank, the founder and leader of the SHROW, Herb Jimenez, and Dave Adornato, all spoke briefly about what raising awareness about gun violence prevention and supporting the goals of Team 26 means to them before the group left for Morristown.
