Bike to The Good Earth Garden Party


The Good Earth Garden Party should already be on your calendar of fun things to do in the area.  It's next Saturday, May 11th, from 10 AM to 5 PM. Talking to people at the Fertile Underground today, I found out that there are plans to organize group bike rides up to the event from the West End.  Rachel used to work at a farm just west of where the Good Earth is, and would commute by bike, and on the occasions when I got to join her, it was gorgeous--down Cranston Ave., onto the bike path through W. Cranston, and then up the very well shouldered Scituate Ave.  A tad hilly towards the end, but very much worth it.

I expect that there will be at least one group going at 9 AM from FUG to make it for the beginning of the event. Please email us at transportprovidence@gmail.com if you want to organize other times for group rides, since we'd be interested in helping make it possible for people to go at all parts of the day.

Celebrate local farming and local transportation!  May 11th at the Good Earth.
