On March 9th 2013 a team of 26 cyclists will ride from Sandy Hook Elementary School arriving in our nation's Capital March 12th 2013.
They are a mix of professional, top amateur, and masters cyclists from the Northeast. Our team includes a former US National Team member, Canadian National Team member, Masters National Champion, and State and Regional Champions.
Three members of the Team are from Newtown, including Monte Frank, Bill Muzzio and Chris Peck. Two of our riders have children who went to the Sandy Hook School. Our team includes parents, teachers, and a Vietnam Veteran. We all care deeply about our children and seek reasonable gun control legislation. We support measures to help curb gun violence:
• Requiring all gun buyers pass criminal background checks* • a ban of military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines* • making gun trafficking a federal crime, including real penalties for “straw buyers”* • strengthen gun ownership restrictions for people with severe mental illness
We understand this issue is complex; but together we can ensure that specific actions are taken to prevent tragedies like those in Newtown, CT. Keeping children safe is an obligation we all share.

"What a tremendous effort and cause! I would be honored to help by providing a Newtown Police Officer to lead the way. It is my hope that our collective efforts will bring meaningful changes to our society so the Sandy Hook Elementary tragedy is never repeated and other wanton and senseless acts of violence dramatically diminish. Please count on me to help in any way possible.
We are also humbled by the support from Newtown First Selectman Pat Llodra and Police Chief Michael Kehoe for our ride.
