Courteous Mass Bicycle Ride & Dine with the Green Riders
Shared by the Indianapolis Food, Farm and Family Coalition: Local Food Potluck with Special Guests the Green Riders Friday, June 11th at 7 p.m. Earth House basement on 237 N. East St., Downtown Indy
Come celebrate Indy's healthy farms, families, and locally-grown foods at the IFFFC's first monthly Local Food Challenge Potluck
The Indianapolis Food, Farm, and Family Coalition invites you to meet The Green Riders. A brother and sister team, Oliver and Catherine Bock, will give us a taste of what it is like to journey across the country on electric bicycles. They will also demonstrate how electric bikes are a fun and easy alternative to cars.
Simply bring a potluck dish to share made with locally grown/produced foods plus a copy of your recipe for the Indianapolis Food, Farm and Family blog. Dining ware may be limited, so please bring your own plate and utensils for yourself and your family, if possible.
Oliver and Catherine Bock are explorers traveling across America from Palo Alto, California to Washington, DC learning about sustainable solutions happening right now and sharing those stories with others. The ride is designed to focus attention on what's going on locally that is moving human behavior towards sustainability. When they arrive in Washington DC, they hope to have lunch with President Obama and ask him if he would like to take a spin on one of their electric bicycles!
