PEDAL POTLUCK PICNIC
1500 NE Alberta (Alberta Co-op)
What’s better than riding bikes on a summer evening and having a picnic afterwards? The ride will be a casual one traversing approx. 3-5 miles and end in a mystery public “park” setting. The catch is the park will be a lesser-known and/or out of the way spot. Picnic will be potluck style, so please bring food and drink to share (preferably vegetarian/vegan). We’ll also stop at a grocery store.
