Fundraiser FEAST for SPOKES (now Cycles for Change) on Saturday, April 30th

A fun event being held for Cycles for Change – from their website:

Build a diverse and empowered community of bicyclists! Support Cycles for Change, which envisions a Twin Cities region where everyone has access to a bicycle, tools, and the knowledge to ride safely and confidently.

All are welcome at this house-party-style feast. RSVP and give what you can as your donation, either ahead of time or at the door.

At the event, you’ll feast on…
• Beet Flatbread Rounds with Cheese Wheels [GF option]
• Greens with Fennel, Orange, and Sprouts [vegan, GF]
• Quiche
• Pavlova with Cherries and Seasonal Fruit [GF]
• Bike-blender Smoothies
• Seeing a trend? It’s a circular feast!

The meal will be made entirely by volunteers – maybe even you!

Hosted by the Minnesota Transportation Museum at its historic Jackson Street Roundhouse, a former steam engine maintenance facility that is one of the last of its kind in the country. Travel through history with working vintage trains, buses, and in-depth exhibits.

Do you want to learn how to ride a bike?

bikeAn invitation from the folks at Spokes:

“Do you want to learn how to ride a bike? Maybe you never learned how to ride. Maybe you haven’t ridden a bike for 30 years and want to try it again. The SPOKES location of Cycles for Change is again offering our Learn-to-Ride course.

In four hour-and-a-half classes we start with putting you on a bike that is short enough that both your feet can touch the ground. Then we spend one or two sessions (it depends on the individual) on you learning how to balance. We progress to braking, peddling, turning and other safe riding skills. The class is open to anyone over 13 years old (we’ve had a couple students close to 70 years old). Click here for more information about the course.
