2nd Annual Veggie Car Race Ride from Cobourg – Saturday, August 24

First Annual Veggie Car Race Ride Hosted by Barb & John – 2018

Below is an invitation from Barb & John, who hope to get your early confirmation of attendance, so they can shop for veggie car parts!

It’s Veggie Car Race Ride time again! John and Barb are hosting the second annual Veggie Car Race Ride at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, August 24th at their home near Cobourg (see directory for map and address). Ride route will be East Danforth.  

First we ride, then we eat.  Food to be provided – pulled chicken or pulled pork tacos or sandwiches, salad, dessert – and then you’ll be singles or teams of two to build your ‘race car’ out of vegetables.  

Here’s a YouTube video if you need an idea. And if you are on the GF Facebook group, you can get a sneak peek of the highs, lows and hilarity of veggie racing by watching some of the videos from last year.

Veggies, utensils and solid axel material will be provided. If you want to add anything exotic or bring your carving tools, have at it. Car building and racing to follow lunch. Non-riding spouses/partners welcome. Bring your own beverages.

  12. Irene says:

    Thank you Barb and John for hosting the Veggie Race again – we will be there – am thinking of ways to update my 2 wheeler design 😉
    Not sure what time we’ll arrive as Richard may ride, I may not owing to an ankle problem.


  13. Can I come for the food and fun? If I get back on time that is. My charity ride around Rice Lake is Saturday…we leave at 6:00 a.m. but I should be back to town around noon? I’d love to pop over and see the go-carts again…loved it last year!

      Of course you can Sharon. The more the merrier. There should be someone at the house or the door will be open for you whenever you get here. You can team up with someone to build a car and race.


  14. Irene says:

    Barb, you haven’t mentioned amount of $s we need to bring to pay for food?


    • Barbara Spencer says:

      Irene, we thought we’d just make this a treat for everyone to just come, ride, relax, be creative and have some fun. Very very small donations, like a tooney would be nice but not necessary.


  15. Sue Pott says:

    See you there.
