The annual Green Cruise meets in the Green Alley and is the grand finish line where bicyclists and other visitors can enjoy samples of healthy foods and talk to various vendors.  There is a Green Parade celebrating human-powered modes of transportation, and there are often unusual costumes, bicycle decorations and unique pedal-powered contraptions.

There will be a host of rides, bicycle tune-up workshops, the parade and a bike coral to store your bike while you mingle. 

The three rides include a 40-mile, fast-paced ride, which starts at 8a.m.; a 22-mile suburban ride, which is moderately paced and starts at 9 a.m.; and a four-mile family, which is slower paced and good, of course, for the whole family! All bicycle rides require a helmet and waivers, which can be obtained here.

If you don't fancy transportation of the two-wheeled nature, there will also be a 5k walk, which starts at 10a.m. as well as a rock-climbing wall, which will be available until 2p.m. To climb the wall, you must wear close-toed shoes!

There will also be vendors on hand selling goods and food, so remember to stop at the ATM before you arrive so you can help support local businesses and entrepreneurs. 

After all the fun and eating, the Green Cruise will also have a massues, giving away free massages.
