By: Brett BergieThe Sprawl just turned one, and you're invited to our birthday party this Saturday, September 29!
It's a small way of celebrating all we've accomplished together since last September.
There are two components: a leisurely bike ride starting at 11 a.m. and an afternoon birthday bash at Dandy Brewing Company (2003 11 St S.E.) at 2 p.m.
Come to one or both as you please!
The ride will be equal parts pathway and roadway. It's a chance to experience Calgary in an in-depth way that invites observation and contemplation. Visit places from Sprawl stories (we'll trace the path of The Streetcar That Wasn't) and build community with fellow Sprawlers. Brett Bergie, a respected #yycbike leader and Sprawl supporter, will be our guide.
I'll have a few tales along the way as well. Think of it as a cross between a live podcast and a Jane's Walk.
The ride will begin at Eau Claire, in front of the YMCA, and travel by pathway up to International Avenue. We’ll enjoy a rest stop there before returning toward the core and ending the ride in Ramsay at Dandy.
Participants should expect 25-kms of cycling over varied terrain. This is a no drops ride; we ride at a pace that leaves no one behind.
Children are welcome at Dandy and RSVP is not required. Just show up!
We hope to see you this weekend—and thanks as always for your support!
