Trailnet's community partners in the City of Ferguson are hosting an upcoming event that combines two things we love: riding bikes and local/organic produce. The City of Ferguson is rapidly becoming an innovator in the movement to create healthy, active & vibrant communities. Their recent successes include Ferguson Sunday Parkways events, their inaugural Live Well 5K that attracted nearly 900 people, adoption of a Complete Streets policy, urban farming and community garden ordinances, and more.
See what all the excitement is about this Sunday:
Tour and Taste of Ferguson
Sunday, August 22, 1 - 4pm
The Ferguson Cycling Club in partnership with EarthDance is hosting their inaugural Tour and Taste of Ferguson this coming Sunday afternoon, August 22, 1-4pm. Join the group for an easy bike ride around lovely Ferguson. The tour will visit community gardens, resident gardens, and finish at the historic Mueller Organic Farm (the oldest organic farm in the region!). You'll have the opportunity to "taste" local produce at each stop along the way.
The ride will be a total of 10 miles and move at an easy pace along quiet neighborhood streets. The ride will begin at the Plaza at 501, located at 501 S. Florissant Road in Ferguson.
If you plan to attend or have questions, please send an email to Gerry Noll:
