Join authors and Explorers Dave and Amy Freeman along with Sustainable Ely to celebrate Pedal to D.C.: A Book Tour to Save the Boundary Waters. The couple will tow a canoe while bicycling 1,750 miles from Ely, MN to Washington D.C. to raise awareness of the threat from sulfide-ore copper mining proposed in the Boundary Waters watershed and to promote their award-winning book, A YEAR IN THE WILDERNESS. Join them at Sustainable Ely for brunch followed by a group ride. There will also be a presentation and audience Q&A, book signing, and a chance to sign their canoe to show your support!

Pedal to D.C. is a collaborative tour between the Freemans, Save the Boundary Waters, and Milkweed Editions.
