If you love Flock and what us to continue through the winter help make this the largest Flock of the year. Large group = more Flock rides. Keep Flock going this winter come join us.

Yeah, that’s the same night. I imagine some people will be there instead (it’s okay, I’ll forgive them) and/or perhaps even that people could be heading there after the ride

How about FOC starts at usual place and ends at lite-up start just at right time? :)

I could maybe be talked into doing this for once and moving my Friday night ride to a Saturday ride at the wheel mill (if its open by then) or rays.

And Mikhail, we’re still figuring out what the post-ride plan is, because there are a few different things going on that night, but that is a possibility!

We were part of a parade last year, although there were only a dozen of us or so, or was that first night. Two years ago we went down and did a gallery tour. It would be nice to include the fireworks into the ride, and beverages from the casino parking deck. Wow do the years and events run together or what?

Sadly I am always away the third week of November, or will be until I get a new job…

I like Marco82’s idea. I think it’d be fun to ride in and join up with a parade and then continue to the casino to watch fireworks.

I thought a trip to ray’s was happening that day. 2 years ago, we locked our bikes up at the end of the jail trail (city side) and walked downtown cause the suburbanites are all angry that they are traffic and can be aggressive.

^I remember that!

@Marko, the parade was First Night. Wow, the years do run together…

Edited to say: we’re in for the Flock ride!

Because November is National Palliative and Hospice Care Month, for this month’s ride, we are teaming with a few friends of Flock who work with oncology patients to draw attention to the importance of this type of care. They will speak with us for a few moments before the ride to share some information about the philosophies of palliative and hospice care, and we will be riding in honor of our own friends and family members who are living with chronic or life-threatening illnesses as well as palliative and hospice care patients everywhere.

(^just as a heads up that we’ll have some guests joining us and talking to us for a few moments — otherwise, it’ll be just like any other party ride)

haven’t decided yet if I’m going. The strip district is going to be a shitstorm leading up to the holiday, and I’ll have to think about sacrificing sleep (sleep is my one true love) for this.

In keeping with the “Light Up Night” motif, is there a Bike Light Up Night meme?

Recognition of brightest headlight? Taillight? Most Wacky Light?

Wacky and/or seasonally appropriate lights are definitely encouraged. Speaking of, I need to find my ridiculous wheel light setup.

BTW, the ride is going to end at OTB. There are a few different things going on that night, so officially ending at Light Up Night didn’t work out this year. However, I think groups of people will be leaving from OTB to go to Light Up Night and other various events, so I suspect anyone who wants to end up there won’t have trouble finding riding buddies.

Here is the route. http://connect.garmin.com/course/2375378#.UKLyyQvMOaI.gmail

I am leaving an option for the choice to end at OTB or continue downtown to enjoy light up night.

Also please come out and ride with us as you can see from other post why Flock is important and why it was founded. Come ride with us to help spread the message that we want and need safer streets for cyclist.

May I ask a favor re Friday’s ride? If anybody is going who’s familiar with the Industrial Highway, if you remember and you see me would you please ‘splain it to me?

I’ve heard discussions of it, I G-mapped it, and people have been patient with me in a related thread, but I can’t quite wrap my limited-bandwidth noggin around whatever it is.

I’m a paunchy old guy, Surly LHT, reflective slow-mo triangles fore and aft.

Thanks in advance, Vannevar.

We were on Centre Avenue from Craig Street to Negley Avenue and passed several buses, around 6:30 or 6:45 pm. I waved at a lot of people on the sidewalks and also drivers.
