Hartford Bike Party and Bike West Hartford are teaming up to organize two rides with a cause this fall! Join our “Fill the Little Food Pantries” rides on Saturday Sept 24th (West End of Hartford and West Hartford) and Saturday October 1st (Hartford North End to Night Fall event at Elizabeth Park). Bring non-perishable foods (especially proteins like peanut butter, tuna, canned soups/stews/beans), boxed foods, and hygiene products for those who are experiencing food insecurity.
Sat Oct 1st: Meet up at 2:30pm at Tisane’s Cafe patio (537 Farmington), and roll out at 3pm for an 8-mile ride to about six little free food pantries in Hartford’s North End. We’ll finish our ride around 4:30pm and people can decide if they want to hang out somewhere (since Night Fall is postponed until Sunday). Download route from RideWithGPS.
Sat Sept 24th: Meet up 5pm at WestSide Square food truck park on Farmington and Girard Avenues (or earlier if you want to buy drinks or food beforehand), and roll at 5:15pm for a 7-mile ride to six little free food pantries in Hartford’s West End and West Hartford. We’ll wrap up at Parkville Market where everyone can gather and chill for some post-ride refreshments. Download route from Strava
