8-28-13 – Hillcrest Community Garden Ride

PedalGR, meeting at 6:30pm on Wednesday, 8/28/2013 at Founder’s Brewing Company, 235 Grandville Ave SW. PedalGR is a ride of the Rapid Wheelmen Bicycle Club.

A visit to the Hillcrest Community Garden in August is never boring. One of the largest community gardens in the Michigan with over 100 plots, urban farming gem is tucked into the Fulton Heights neighborhood on Lyon St and is sure to be packed full of ripe produce of all kinds. We’ll also visit an assortment of sites on the near NE side including Aquinas College, Marywood Campus of the Dominican Sisters, Fulton St Farmer’s Market and the Kent County Jail (not necessarily in that order).

Also, if you’re looking for something to do before PedalGR, the Greater Grand Rapids Bicycle Coalition is hosting their quarterly Handlebar Happy Hour from 5pm-7pm at Brewery Vivant on Cherry St. Checkout the details or RSVP at their Facebook event.

Sept 11 – PedalGR End of Season Party/Ride

Founders will be closed for our normal End of Season Party/Ride. They are finishing their renovations on the new beer garden, which is going to be amazing! Location of the final party is TBD, but I’m accepting suggestions. Let me know your ideas and I’ll work something out over the next two weeks.
