"Your bicycle weirdo friends at The RiSKi Action Coalition know that, in harsh and confusing times, it is always a good idea to do the right thing: DIRECT ACTION CHARITY to benefit your community. Our 5th annual Spring direct action charity bike ride, the SPRING FLING CHA-CHING 2017, will benefit Ft Lauderdale Food Not Bombs, a local organization that cooks for and feeds the hungry and homeless every Friday afternoon in Stranahan Park and Wednesday morning in the Sistrunk neighborhood. We will be buying food and cooking supplies to donate to Food Not Bombs. Like all RiSKi AC charity bike events, (and unlike other local bike “charities”) this is 100% DIRECT ACTION AND NON-PROFIT. $20.00 is required to purchase the food items. Your purchased goods will be given directly to Food Not Bombs, and there is no registration fee.
This year’s manifest is short (less than 10 miles) and will feature group rides and various options to get the goods (although racers gonna race….).
Pre-ride organizing begins at 3:00 pm, the Ride/Race starts at 4:00 pm and the afterparty sponsored by our friends at Two&, and Thaddeus Inchoate, starts at 6:00pm. The joy of doing direct action, no bullshit, charity with your friends, starts when you do a RiSKi A.C. Ride. Racing is not required, team riding is encouraged, and a group ride will happen. Riders are invited to participate at any speed and any level.
BRING $20 (to buy the food), A BACKPACK (to carry the food) AND A BIKE LOCK (to protect your pony)!
RIDE YOUR BIKE—HAVE FUN—DO GOOD!"
