Pedalpalooza and Pancake Breakfast

When: Sat., April 11, 9 a.m. 2015

You need incentive to dust off your bike, get out into the sun and cycle around the ’hood, right? Well, Ivanhoe Village Main Street is giving it to you. First, head to Retro City Cycles at 9 a.m. for a bike safety check – they’ll make sure your tired old Schwinn is road-ready for your adventure. Then join a group for a family-friendly ride around Ivanhoe Village (organizers say it’ll be a 6-mile ride), followed by a pancake breakfast at the Hammered Lamb. Pancakes are fine and all – and we’d totally eat a stack of them after riding around the Ivanhood all morning – but nothing tastes better after a bike ride than a nice cold IPA. And Hammered Lamb serves those, too, so your post-ride festivities are made. All proceeds from this event benefit the Ivanhoe Village Main Street district, which helps bring more good times (and good businesses) to the area. – Erin Sullivan
