So: The original recipe TdC didn’t happen as scheduled on July 12 – you may remember the monsoon that decided to dump on C-U that day? Due to scheduling issues and some re-thinking of the length of the trip, CUTdC been rescheduled as an Urbana-only event for this Saturday, July 26. (Don’t fret – Champaign will get their own event sometime in the next couple of months, we hope!) There’s a new event page at Facebook – have a look and we hope to see you there!
OK! Here’s the deal for the 1st Annual C-U Tour de Coop from one of our hostesses with the mostest, Karen Carney:
The following chicken-tenders have agreed to meet our group and provide a short talk describing their coop and flock. We will ride our bikes to each destination as a group, leaving from Common Ground no later than 1:10, and making every effort to arrive and depart at the times specified. If you choose not to bike, or have other time constraints, you may join up with or leave the group at any time, using the schedule as a guide; however, please be aware that all times listed are approximate.
Please plan to bring a refillable water bottle, as the day may be hot; water will be available at each stop along the way. You may also want to bring along a snack, or plan to buy one at Common Ground.
