This Saturday, November 20th, at 11am we’ll be hosting a canned good drive (well, ride actually!) starting at the new Millwork Commons skate park at 12th & Millwork Ave (just north of Nicholas). Look for cargo bikes with Mode Shift banners and you’ll know you’re in the right spot!
The concept is simple: show up with your bike, helmet, bag (backpack or pannier will do the trick!) and some cash ready to pedal around town purchasing items to donate to the Siena Francis House and Omaha Autonomous. It’s sort of a race, sort of a ride, with a prize for the first one back with 5 different items from the manifest, with receipts showing you went to 5 different markets. Can’t think of 5 different locations nearby North Downtown to collect canned goods? Don’t worry! We’ll have fliers for you that morning with different options within about a 5 mile radius of the starting point. *This is a ride at your own risk event on open city streets. Arrive at 11:00, ready to roll at 11:30.
If you want to donate but don’t want to pedal, no problem! We’ll be ready for you from 11am-2pm so swing by with anything on this list and we’ll pedal it over to the Siena Francis House and the Omaha Autonomous group after 2pm. This is our last in-person event of the year so we’ll hope to see you Saturday!
