Meat Grinder Bike Ride: September 11, 2021
COMPLETED! Thanks to all who rode or came to eat. We are awaiting news about the 2022 Meat Canning Schedule.
A bike ride with a purpose.
STRAVA ROUTES ARE POSTED ON THE MAPLE RIDGE CENTER FACEBOOK PAGE.
The Meat Grinder is an annual cycling event with an important goal: raise money to bring MCC's one-of-a-kind mobile meat canner to Maple Ridge Center in 2022. Whether you go 25 or 45 miles, this bike ride on Saturday, September 11 is a great personal challenge and an opportunity to cycle together with co-workers, friends, and family.
In 2019, over 12,000 pounds of meat were canned at Maple Ridge Center and distributed across the globe (including our local communities!). Thanks to all the volunteers and donors who made this happen!
