A group of neighbors is organizing a bike tour of inner-Southeast Village Building Convergence sites this weekend. Read on for details.
I’m writing to invite you to the Pedalpalooza bike tour of inner-Southeast Village Building Convergence sites this coming Saturday, June 30th. This will be a potluck-style three-course meal bike-ride, so feel free to bring something easily transportable to share! We also encourage you to bring your own eating utensils.
We will meet at St. David of Wales Church (2800 SE Harrison St.), which was the main VBC venue, at 5 pm to see their placemaking project and enjoy some salad as the first course of our potluck. Around 6 pm we’ll arrive at our second potluck destination, the intersection painting at 16th & Brooklyn, where we will have our main-course dinner items. We will finish the site tour at the Buckman intersection, 15th & Alder, at around 7 pm. We will share dessert and compost any food waste accumulated over the course of the potluck-ride in the community compost. We also plan to bike by the Brooklyn Community Gardens and Communitecture sites en route to our potluck destinations.
This will be a family-friendly event, so feel free to bring little ones and friends of all ages! It will also be a fantastic way to see some of the awesome placemaking visions our community has brought to fruition during this year’s VBC, while meeting others who are interested in building community creatively, joyfully, and by bike!
Let me know if you have any questions, and I hope to see you on Saturday!
