A swift ride around the city at night. This ride is definitely no-drops, but has a little bit faster pace than some of the more family friendly rides.
This happens on a Monday because there’s minimal traffic that night of the week, and because I can’t make any other night of the week :)
We’ll meet at 11:45pm, and leave at 12:15 am from Friendship park.
Lights are MANDATORY
Healthy appetite recommended
Stop at red lights/stop signs
If the group gets cut in half by a red light, we’ll pull over and stop to wait for everyone else
Use turn signals
Stay in the correct lane (right most of the time, sometimes the center lane, sometimes left if there’s a turn)
If it’s safe to let cars pass, let them.
If it’s not safe to let cars pass, don’t let them.
If it’s raining (Or snowing, or below 20°) at 11, we’ll cancel.
Ending at Ritter’s Diner – bring cash, or be ready to use their ATM.
Ritter’s isn’t open for them.
There’s not really many end places convenient.
and not to be rude (it’s just that I’ve explained this many times), but these rides happen on a certain day/time because there were no rides that worked with my schedule, so I started one. I suggest others do the same :)
The more rides, the better.
Usually, if a holiday is involved, I’ll postpone by a week, because it’s difficult to find places to eat in the Shadyside/Bloomfield/Oakland area that are open at that time, and for holidays, they all close until Tuesday morning.
I’m a day-shifter also but I think this is a cool ride so I’ll get to work early, catch a snooze before the “shift” starts, and drink plenty of coffee during the day ! As I believe the old Warren Zevon song says, “I’ll sleep when I’m dead.”
