Special Edition Vegan Dinner Bike Ride

What's "special edition" mean?: Earlier, more comfortable, new and once-in-a-lifetime
Where: Covered picnic area of Colonel Summers Park (SE Taylor and about SE 19th)
When: Friday, Nov. 6, 6:00 p.m. (Half an hour EARLIER)
After Dinner: PARTY at HELD Vegan Belts shop
New winter hours! Slightly new meeting point! New eating
experience! And a once-in-a-lifetime after-dinner adventure!

This Friday (11/6) we will meet half an hour earlier than
usual at 6:00 p.m. and ride at 6:15 p.m.

We still meet at Colonel Summers Park (SE Taylor and about
SE 19th) but for winter we will be meeting under the covered brick
picnic area instead of our usual uncovered spot.

This time we will be riding to a relatively new place for
dinner. It is outdoors, but has covered, heated seating and vegan food that
will warm you up from the inside.

Friday's ride coincides with the grand opening party for
HELD Vegan Belts, so after dinner we will ride over to enjoy performances,
music, treats from Vita Café and Back to Eden Bakery Boutique and a raffle.

The grand opening is also a fundraiser for the owner of HELD, who required
surprise emergency surgery just weeks before receiving the keys to his new
storefront and has a long, arduous recovery and medical bills before him.

Remember, you DO NOT have to be vegan to join the ride (we do not
discriminate against the veg-curious or anyone who just likes good food
and good company), but please do not bring any meat to our tables.
