Ever wondered what people in other countries actually eat at home?

Ever wanted to experience foreign customs, games, and story-telling?

Well, we won't be packing our panniers and crossing the oceans this Sunday, but we will be riding to 3 different homes in our own communities and sample authentically prepared ethnic cuisine and share in stories and games from lands afar.

This Sunday, we have 3 volunteers from these diverse cultural backgrounds: Jewish, Indian, and Taiwanese, each opening their homes and hosting all ride participants to yummy treats and fun cultural exchange.

Both Easy group and Intermediate group riders are welcome. The ride level will be Easy.

If you are interested in being one of the hosts for future Cultural Exchange Rides, please don't hesitate to contact us and volunteer!

It would also be exciting if the particular culture you are featuring is NOT your own ethnic background, but another culture you have always been interested in. Imagine the fun in researching another culture, preparing authentic recipes, practicing ethnic customs, and telling exotic stories!
