If you're still looking for ways to give back this Thanksgiving holiday, and also want to get a head start on working off those extra calories, biking up to 30 miles round trip to bring food to the less fortunate sounds like a good way to do it. And if you're not quite up to that distance, maybe a short jaunt through downtown Dayton would suffice?
Tomfoolery Outdoors in Tipp City has teamed up with FoodBank Dayton for a food delivery by bicycle: On Nov. 21, load up your baskets, backpacks, whatever you can with nonperishable food, then make the 17-mile trek from Adventures on the Great Miami to FoodBank Dayton, then enjoy live music, food and drinks, and a strong sense of accomplishment.
Then, bike 17 miles back!
If that is a little too much of a jaunt for you, Bike Miami Valley is joining in the fun for a shorter lunch time ride on Nov. 19 at 11:30 a.m. Fill up your baskets with food at Courthouse Square, drop your wares at FoodBank Dayton, and ride back to downtown knowing you did something productive before lunchtime that day. A portion of the proceeds benefit FoodBank Dayton.
