Ride details

10:15am - Meet at the Seattle Commissary Kitchen loading dock (map)

Once everyone arrives and we hook up trailers we will check-in with our contact at the Seattle Commissary Kitchen.

As riders arrive we'll hook up bike trailers and hand out food safe gloves.

10:20am - Everyone loads their bikes up with banana boxes of fresh sushi for the food bank.

Every week Seattle Commissary Kitchen donates 4 full banana boxes of fresh sushi to the food bank.

10:30am - We'll start riding up to the ACRS food bank in the northeast part of the Chinatown-International District. The route is 1.5 miles and we will stay together as a group. (see RWGPS route)

11:00am - We'll arrive arrive at the ACRS food bank loading dock just off S Weller St and drop-off the sushi with their staff and volunteers.

The ACRS food bank will then use the rescued shushi to provide a valuable culturally specific food option to the food insecure families that they support in the community.

(Option) After the ride - If the weather is nice enough we'll get lunch, coffee, or tea in the Chinatown-International District!

If you borrowed a bike trailer make sure that it is given back to the ride organizer who gave it to you at the start of the ride.

For the ride, bring

  • A bike;
  • A helmet;
  • A bike lock (we'll be riding together for the food rescue, but it's best to bring a lock just in case);
  • A mask;
  • A backpack, bike bag, basket, or any other way to carry a 20 pounds of food on your bike;
