Atlantic Coast Pipeline Resistance Ride

Ready to Rollll!

We have arrived at White’s Wayside Diner with Jack and Mary Wilson! (You can meet them here!)

It is sunny and beautiful in Augusta, Virginia, and we could not be more excited to begin our ride. Jack and Mary’s beautiful land and stories alone are inspiration to fight this pipeline.

We had a great start and some delicious bread from Mary, who knows the original and famous, decades-old diner recipe. One of Mary’s concerns about the pipeline is that it will contaminate the local water, which is a critical ingredient of the bread. When she tried to make it using Charlottesville water once it didn’t work at all.

We also took a trip out to Jack and Mary’s camp MoonDance, a beautiful property right on the border of the George Washington National Forest. They built a deck on their roof from which they like to watch the lovely Hankey Mountain changing colors throughout the year. The ACP would mean a clear cut strip through the mountain.

It’s exciting to see how many NoPipeline signs are everywhere here!

One thought on “Ready to Rollll!

  1. We are so proud of our youth and their courage to challenge the silence by expressing their freedom of speech with a constructive and creative demonstration. We ride with you in spirit and you make us find the courage to speak up when we are told’ there is not much we can do.” You have proved otherwise. thank you
