Are we sure its fall yet?

Pumpkin spice lattes may get you in the fall mood, but this weather still screams summer. Since it feels like summer, let’s do something that gives us summertime vibes.

Pedal to Porch is riding into town this weekend. This neighborhood storytelling experience on a bicycle started in Detroit and has now made its way to the QC. We spoke to the creator this summer in preparation for this weekend’s event.

If riding a two-wheeler in this weather is not your thing, say no more. We’ve got more stationary things to keep you entertained Friday though Sunday. Visit our special Weekend Events Page for the full listing.
