Bike for Life

When: Sun., July 13, 2 p.m. 2008

Considering the Supreme Court's recent Second Amendment endorsement, there's no better time than now to implement a gun truce in Oakland, and hopefully help curb the homicide rate. This Sunday, July 13's Bike for Life Peace Ride at Lakeside Park Playground (468 Perkins St., Oakland) dovetails with the Ella Baker Center's Silence the Violence campaign, and will include a barbecue, scraper bike parade (showcasing the many varieties of tricked-out, candy-painted, ecologically minded vehicles that have recently invaded the streets of Oakland), and performances by hip-hop artists Da Trunk Boiz and Queen Deelah (an emcee who uses her phenomenal gospel choir voice for gritty rap lyrics). 2 p.m., free. Register at or 510-238-8080 ext. 310
