The inaugural Menagerie in Motion event—one of only a handful in the United States—starts at the GRU Power District Warehouse on Saturday morning and follows a route around Depot Park.
Healthy relationships are based on, among other things, trust and communication.
That being the case, Flo Turcotte and Helen Warren will be putting their relationship to the test today during the inaugural Menagerie in Motion Kinetic Derby.
The Gainesville couple will be one of about 20 entries in the event that showcases human-powered (i.e. pedaled), custom-built vehicles. At 10 this morning, the Kinetic Derby will start at the GRU Power District Warehouse, 625 SE 5th Ave., and follow a 1.5-mile loop around Depot Park before returning to the warehouse for an awards ceremony.
Among the entries are five from Raymond Rawls in the form of animals—a shark, an elephant, a goldfish, an alligator and a horseshoe crab. Thus, the name Menagerie in Motion. However, entries were not required to have an animal theme.
