Last week, 20 lucky folks were on the ball enough to register for the second annual Veggie Bike & Dine, to be held July 23rd. Those earlybirds sold out the first round of registration, but EarthSave Chicago and the Chicagoland Bicycle Federation can accomodate another 25 people on this progressive dinner of vegan-friendly places downtown. The next chance for signing up is May 29th. So, if biking and dining with a bunch of vegetarians sounds like something you could get into, you'll want to register for the event's email notifications -- they'll send a friendly reminder so you can get one of those remaining golden tickets. Incidentally, the 29th is also the day of Bike The Drive, details about which are here in Slowdown. (These events are just two of the many affiliated with Bike Chicago 2005.)
