Don’t You Miss It!

C.I.C.L.E. + Path to Freedom = Harvest Bike Ride and Potluck Social : Live Music from Triple Chicken Foot

November is a perfect time for acorn soups, warm casseroles, pumpkin pies, bike riding over fallen crunchy leaves, kick ball in the park and an Urban Expedition’s Harvest Ride and Potluck Social. On Saturday, November 15, at 11:30 AM, C.I.C.L.E. is excited to team up with the renowned urban homestead, Path To Freedom, for an incredible neighborhood bike ride, potluck and gathering.

Los Angeles is teeming with diverse minds and culture, and yet despite our differences in background and perspectives, we can still come together for something reminiscent of a bygone era–when community was the most valuable commodity. November’s Urban Expeditions is one such gathering–packed full of good old fashioned good times.

Start the day by decorating your bike and riding an easy-paced Urban Expeditions bike ride around the neighborhood. After the ride, get ready for the “100-mile potluck” challenge, where potluck contestants will compete against each other for the prestigious “most local dish” award. Next we’ll enjoy the fruits of the harvest as we feast on local and homegrown delectable potluck delights. And there’s nothing like a bit of fun after a good meal. Be sure to bring your musical instruments (if you play) and take part in an impromptu jam session. Get creative and use your brain playing “sustainable charades”. Enjoy kickball, a scavenger hunt, volleyball, gunny sack races and being a kid again–and make sure to bring the kids!

So grab your bikes, your friends, and your family and come celebrate with the C.I.C.L.E. folks and the revolutionary modern day urban homesteaders from Path to Freedom. This event is free.

Special thanks to our event sponsors: REI, Whole Foods, Armstrong Nursery (South Pasadena) and Clif Bar.
