It is summertime and that means that weekends and evenings fill up quickly. Having said that there are just some events that you have to adjust for. This sounds like one of them. Bike and Bite, August 13, 2011 Minneapolis, Minnesota. We received this notice and wanted to pass it along, hopefully it makes it onto your calendar:
From farmers markets and food cooperatives, to community gardens and urban farms, to locally sourced restaurants and cafés, Minneapolis has a vibrant (and growing!) local food scene. This summer, tap into that excitement by being part of Bike and Bite, a local food-centered community bike event being held in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy (IATP). It’s a great opportunity to connect with folks who are excited about local, sustainable food.
Riders of all ages will set their own course between approximately 10 fun, food-centered stops (places like The Wedge, farmers markets and Peace Coffee’s new café!) in Minneapolis, tasting delicious local, sustainable products while learning more about the businesses and organizations that make it possible! We’ll start and end at IATP’s Whittier neighborhood office, ending with a celebration overlooking our staff-run vegetable garden. We’re keeping the registration costs low – $10 per rider, kids 12 and under free – to encourage everyone to participate!
