Progressive dinners offer meals with each successive course prepared and eaten at a different location. They're great for those who like to eat and run. But what about those who like to grab a bite and a bike?
The Hub of Detroit, a local non-profit bike space, is answering that question Sunday by holding a progressive bicycle dinner fundraiser.
The food will be served in portions during a series of stops along a roughly 13-mile route. The itinerary includes trips to the end of the Dequindre Cut, Mt. Elliot Park, Detroit's Farnsworth neighborhood, Forest Park and the Green Dot Stables restaurant, which will also provide food.
This is the event's second year. The Hub's Jason Fiedler said last year's event attracted so many participants that organizers had to turn people away. This year they are sponsoring two bike dinners with a second scheduled for August.
"Last year 90 folks split into three different groups," said Fiedler. "Each group would go in waves arrive at one of the locations, eat, hang out, learn about the food, go to the next location and keep going."
The money raised from the $30-a-plate ride will help pay high school students participating in the organization's Mechanics In Training program.
Participants are asked to arrive at the Hub's retail space at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 20. The ride will begin at 3 p.m. Pre-Registration must be completed by Friday, May 18.
