    Ultimate advocacy event - informative bu tnot activist oriented. Top advocacy leaders of trhe Swiss and DC metro region - including Oregon's Congressman who was mind blowing. THEN.. as much quality liquor and food you could possibly imagine - our group and others that I knew that attended couldn't stop talking about it - the best event I've been to - and then of course leading up to Bike to Work Day - same Swiss leaders presented bike racks to the city at Freedom Plaza.
