Bike and Bite 2012: Year of the Cooperative
Sat., August 18, 10:00 am – 2:00 pm
2105 First Avenue South
Bike and Bite is a food-centered community bike event hosted by the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy (IATP). After setting their own course between some or all of our designated stops, and tasting some delicious local goods along the way, riders are invited back to our headquarters in the Whittier neighborhood for more food, music, beverages and a chance to meet other local people interested in good food, the principles of cooperatives, and IATP's work supporting a fair, healthy and sustainable food system.
2012 is the International Year of the Co-op, and Minneapolis has lots to celebrate. This year, Bike and Bite will feature area organizations and businesses that exemplify the cooperative model or actively maintain relationships with co-ops, among other highlights of our local food scene.
The event goes on rain or shine! Be ready to map your own route, riding on city streets. Kids are welcome with an accompanying adult (and kids 12 and under can ride for free, but must register).
