Friday September 20, 2013

We’re meeting at Dippy at *6pm* and departing at 6:30!

PLEASE INVITE YOUR FRIENDS!

More details below…

–What is a Bike Party?–

A Bike Party is a welcoming, family-friendly, all-inclusive, FREE event consisting of a leisurely-paced bicycle ride (complete with music and mechanical support) and ending with a post-ride party.

The group pedals through the city at a slow, welcoming pace appropriate for riders of all ages and capabilities. You get a chance to make new friends, learn new routes, and have fun on your bike!

–Where?–

We’ll meet at Dippy the Dino (on Forbes Ave in Oakland, in front of the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, across from the Cathedral of Learning).

–When?–

We’ll meet at 6pm and leave at 6:30pm.

(Won’t be off work in time? We’ll post the route later so that you can catch up with us along the way.)

–How long is the ride?–

Around 8-10 miles.

–What’s the route?–

http://connect.garmin.com/course/4803056

–Where does the ride end?–

A park for potluck snacks and then optionally rolling from there to OTB to continue the evening

–What should I bring?–

Helmets. Lights. A bike to put those lights on. And all your friends!

–What happens in the case of rain/snow/zombie apocalypse?–

On the afternoon of the ride, we’ll decide whether conditions are safe enough to ride. Look for updates here, on Twitter, and on our website a couple of hours before the start of the ride if things are looking sketchy.

Slight change in plans. I might start this ride, then aim for home at the first opportunity. Need to be in bed by 9. But at least I don’t have to be on the road by 4pm like before.

I’ll likely be there!

I want to re-iterate (again) how much I like the name “Flock of Cycles” and how much the subject here makes me think “drunkards on 2 wheels”

In! Tomorrow is shaping up to be an entire day of riding bikes, enjoying PARKing Day whimsy, going to OTB, riding back to Oakland, enjoying Flock whimsy, and ending up back at OTB. Heaven.

Weather says 0 % chance of precipitation.

Moon is 98% full!

I’m ready for you, I hope you’re ready for me.

I will make an appearance, but I don’t think I’m going to ride very far with you. Rather limited on speed, given that I’m on a fixie of a sort.

Thank you so much, Marcel and Flock–it was fabulous as always! Met a few new people last night who were there for the first time, which is always extra-fun. Love you too, @mr marvelous, our fearless leader!
