No tickets or signup are required, but please RSVP if you plan on coming so we can be prepared! This is a community bike ride organzied by local volunteers, so you are responsible for yourself and your bicycles at all times!

As always, we will be passing by and pointing out as many smaller gardens as we can.This event is free and open to the public. Please be prepared, and bring your own supplies! We will have someone driving a truck to carry supplies from stop to stop. Please make sure your bike is in working order, and bring basic repair items such as a tube, pump, wrenches, patch kit, etc in case of any mechanical issues.Please note that everyone is individually responsible for safe operation of their bicycles and for following all traffic laws at all times while on public streets. Ample time has been included in the schedule to ensure that everyone can travel at a comfortable pace. Personal safety equipment (helmets and lights) are encouraged. Handouts will be provided with a map of all the garden stops, and a live tracker will be posted for anyone that wants to catch up and join at any point!We look forward to exploring many pockets of local edible flora on our most sustainable, efficient method of travel available: Pedal Power!
Come discover a few of our many local urban gardens and farms!
