UI employee biking as sole U.S. representative on 'peace' tour

Michelle Gin will soon burn rubber in southern Japan as the sole U.S. representative on the international peace bike tour in August.

Gin — an outreach coordinator in the University of Iowa Study Abroad office — will join more than 40 activists from around the world, and they will cycle 500 kilometers through southern Japan starting in Nagasaki and ending in Hiroshima. The idea of the tour is for representatives to show solidarity with the victims and survivors of nuclear weapons, nuclear testing, uranium mining, nuclear energy, and nuclear accidents in the past 60 years, according to a press release.
