Get some exercise, get outdoors and support the environment with the Ecology Center's 2013 EcoRide on Sunday, June 23 at Riverside Park. This annual family-friendly event is for riders of all skill levels with a selection of rides at different lengths weaving through bike trails, parks, organic farms and gardens in the A2 area. The routes include the 2 mile Tour DeFalls, 10 mile Tour DeHoop, 10 mile Tour DeEcoArtFarmSolar, 20 mile Combine DeTours and the 55 mile Tour DeLong. This year local artists will have "EcoArt" pop-up art galleries with a sustainability theme along the Farm tour stops. Participants can enjoy music food and festivities after the ride. There are no registration fees, but riders are asked to raise pledges to benefit the Ecology Center. The top fundraisers for the kids, teen, adult and team categories will win great prizes from local businesses.
