BEMIDJI -- The city of Bemidji Parks and Recreation Department will hold a Pedal with a Purpose biking event starting Monday, Nov. 15.

The goal of the event is to ride a bike to a local grocery store and pick up a few items for the Bemidji Community Food Shelf, then bike back to a designated drop-off location, a release said. Participants don't have to bike to take part in this activity.

Participants will receive bike packs as part of the event. Each pack will include a list of items needed for the food shelf, bike maps, bike safety guides, biking water bottles and a chance to win prizes. More information will be emailed to participants after registration regarding drop-off times and locations, the release said.
