Bike Fresh, Bike Local This Weekend
Tuesday, September 18, 2012
The Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture (PASA) is hosting their annual Bike Fresh, Bike Local this Sunday Sept. 23rd. The ride begins and ends at Victory Brewing Company in Downingtown where participants can enjoy a 25, 50, or 75 mile jaunt through the Chester County countryside. For 5 years, this ride has become an autumn institution in the sustainable farming community. After completing the ride, participants are invited back to Victory Brewing for a meal featuring produce and products from area farms as well as a sampling of Victory Beer.
I could write more glowing things about this ride, but in all honesty supporting a one of the finest sustainable farming organizations in the country, plus a beautiful bike ride, plus free victory beer doesn’t leave much more room for persuasion. I hope to be there so come by and say hi. For tickets and more info visit www.pasa.org/bikefresh.
And if you just can’t that long for a great event in the sustainability world, then please drop by Grid Alive this Thursday Sept. 20th at Trinity Memorial Church on 22nd and Spruce. Doors open at 6, show starts at 7. This month we’ll be talking to Liz Robinson of The Energy Coordinating Agency, Amy Laura Cahn of the Public Interest Law Center, and Scott Kelly and Jen Rezeli of Re-Vision Architecture.
