Tour De Farce Promotes Love and Forgiveness in Yakima

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash. -- A local group looks to bring attention to love and forgiveness in Yakima while promoting alternate modes of transportation.

The Inaugural Tour De Farce bicycle race came about after an Idea Jam funded by a grant from the Fetzer Institute. The fake race is meant to bring the community together and celebrate the future of Yakima.

"We use love and forgiveness essentially as tools," Community Organizer Nathan Poel said. "We saw them as ways to create a more healthy community."

The 2-mile trek started at Miller Park and wound through the streets of Downtown Yakima. The group plans to install 6 bike racks to commemorate the event.
