Band Touring On Bikes Set to Ride/Play SD this Wednesday

Kentucky-based cellist, singer, songwriter Ben Sollee and his band have chosen SD to kick off their bike-powered tour of the U.S. This tour, known as the Ditch The Van Tour which has pulled sponsors like the League of American Bicyclists, is extremely impressive. The band will be riding--with equipment in tow!--from SD to SF to Colorado to D.C. and more in between.

The Ditch The Van Tour is about going car-free, minimizing your carbon footprint, discovering one's preferred pace of life, it's about the city and its infrastructure, and about connectivity not just across the country but about connectivity to towns and to the people who live in them.

Connect w/ the first leg of the tour this Wednesday, Aug. 18 when Sollee and band ride to Sushi Art (390 11th Ave) in Downtown SD to perform. Sollee and band are asking people to join them on the SD ride. This ride meets at Velo Cult at 5pm, departing at 6:30pm to head downtown for the show.

Come support this working-class bicyclist on the mic.
