Ride Description: 

http://www.meetup.com/cascaderides/events/179091392/

Join FamilyWorks Family Resource Center and Food Bank Director Jake Weber and Seattle Neighborhood Greenways Director Cathy Tuttle on a ride to and from Wallingford to the University Farmer's Market. Learn how to pack the produce you buy on a bicycle. We'll return with produce we buy in the U-District (bring money!) to give to the Food Bank. Jake will give us a tour of the Food Bank when we return.

FamilyWorks serves north central Seattle people who are seeking a path to long-term resiliency and might not otherwise have access to healthy food or parenting- and life-skills resources. www.familyworksseattle.org

The U District Farmers Market is part of a community-based, non-profit alliance of locally managed farmer's markets that support local, organic businesses. www.seattlefarmersmarkets.org/markets/u_district

Most of our ride will be along greenways (safe healthy streets) proposed by Greenways groups in Wallingford and the U-District. While it is a short 5-mile loop ride, there are hills that we’ll take slowly. We hope you can join us!

All Wallingford Spokespeople rides meet at the south end of Wallingford Playfield at N. 42nd and Densmore and ride on greenways whenever possible to an adjacent urban center. New riders welcome! Please arrive by 11:45 if you are new to riding in groups or need help adjusting your helmet or your bike. All ages and skill levels welcome! All rides are on the road with traffic, and include expert commuters who accompany us to offer encouragement and model good road riding techniques. FAMILIES WELCOME!

Please Contact Ride Leader Cathy Tuttle (206) 713-5869 with any questions. We’ll stop frequently and should be back at the starting point by 2 pm at the latest.
