Veggie Bike & Dine: Love Fest with Local Restaurants

Veggie Bike & Dine was such a love-fest this weekend! From Howard Area Community Garden to a surprise sommelier experience at Trotter's to Go, it was such a treat to celebrate dining by bicycle with all riders. Active Trans wants to thank our small, hardworking volunteer group: board member and ride founder Chris Brunn, Veggie Bike & Dine Intern Carlin Thomas, Neighbor Space's Andrew Dribbin and Ben Helphand, Ride Marshals Megan Bernard and Katie Call, and photographer Holly Swanson.

Food was provided by Lakeside Cafe, Ras Dashen, Taste of Lebanon, Chicago Diner, Trotters to Go, and Green Grocer Chicago. Thank you to everyone for their support and wonderful vegan food.
