Event Description

Meet your fellow bikin' and cyclin' neighbors for a weekly evening cruise around JP, taking advantage of the cool temps and quiet streets! Bring your mountain, commuter, cargo, tandem, tall, short, chopper, mixte, fixie, road, or cross bike. We don't care, as long as it's in good repair and you've got a front and rear light; slap a bell on for extra credit and fun. You can find lights and bells at Bikes Not Bombs or Ferris Wheels; if your bike needs a little TLC, talk to either shop ASAP, or the folks at Community Spoke if money's tight.

We're going to wander around the back streets of JP for a while, and then get ice cream at JP Licks! This is not a 'critical mass' or protest ride: we'll follow the traffic rules (we stop for red lights and pedestrians in crosswalks, for example.)

If it's a success, we'll do it again the next week, and the week after that...

Our goals:

-socialize and catch up by slowin' down
-encourage the people in our lives to use their bikes more, if only for a goofy ride (bring a friend, lover, neighbor, coworker, date, roommate...)
-meet your neighbors! You know, those people that live near you!
-make new friends (and more?)
-find people to ride with
-rant and rave about bikin' and cyclin' in the area

Little ones are welcome as long as they're in seats, trailers, trail-a-longs, cargo bikes, etc. with you.

Please come helmeted, and we humbly suggest water and moolah for frozen concoctions. Cameras are good too!

Note on the starting time: we're aiming for early enough that we won't spoil bedtimes for those with early mornings, but not so early that we won't interfere with dinner plans and whatnot. We can discuss this more after the ride!

 

RSVPs are helpful to gauge how many people we should expect;
