Fresh Start Bike Tour

Fresh Start Bike Tour

Date: Saturday, April 28th

Time:  Registration starts at 1:00pm; Ride starts at 2:00pm

Starting point: Midwest Computer Accessories, 850 S. Meridian St, in the up and coming Stadium Village

We’ll have an enjoyable bike tour, starting at Midwest Computer Accessories. Our first stop is the South Circle Farm on South Meridian to learn about urban farming.  We’ll ride the Wapahani Trail to the Eskenazi Sky Farm for rooftop gardening followed by the Slow Food Garden at White River State Park  to talk about Urban Agriculture. Our last stop  is at Chef JJ’s Downtown. 

At each stop, you'll learn from local growers how to bring about "new starts" in a garden, whether on a roof, or in a green house, or in an urban garden.

Ending Point: Chef JJ's, 42 W. South St, for the After-Party with terrific music by the Justin Brewer Project and delicious food!  

Best yet, you’ll be providing Fresh Starts, with funds raised benefiting Trusted Mentors, a leading provider of mentors for at-risk adults. Trusted Mentors is an Indianapolis based 501c3 that connects trained, volunteer mentors with at-risk adults and helps them successfully stay housed and out of prison. Our ongoing success rate has helped hundreds of people succeed, reducing the public costs of homelessness and incarceration. 

Cost:

  • $39 plus $100 in pledges for Fresh Start Bike Tour and After-Party
  • $78 for Fresh Start Bike Tour and After-Party
  • $39 only for Fresh Start Bike Tour
  • $39 only for After-Party

Become a fundraising participant! Your fundraising through the power of peer to peer mentoring will help provide more mentors. Raise $100 and you'll have free entry into the After-Party. Each dollar raised is eligible for matching through the Glick Family Fund.  

All those who raise over $250 will be entered into a drawing for fun prizes. The more you raise, the more chances you'll receive. 

And you'll be helping more people stay housed and out of prison!
