“On behalf of the city of Greenwich, I would like to welcome Team 26 - let us certainly applaud,” said Town Selectman Peter Tesei. 


The cyclists known as "Team 26"  are at it again.
For the second time, they are making the 400 mile journey to Washington D.C. - all in the hopes to get Congress to act.  They want stricter regulations against guns.

"The reception is amazing,” said cyclist Carl Riger.
 Remembering Sandy Hook, the community warmly welcomes the team.

"I just am tired of Congress not taking action," said resident Jeannine Maddoff. 

 But one congressman is joining the cause - even riding himself. 

"Nothing we have ever achieved as a country has come quickly or easily. It happens because you and me and Team 26 and the people over a period of time say this will not stand.  So thank you for being here," said Congressman Jim Himes.

The group  joined together last year in honor of Sandy hook, but their ride saw no action in Congress.
They will continue their journey over the next four days, arriving to Congress’ doorstep with their message by Tuesday.
