Gah! I’m also annoyed I’m missing this ride and I’m not even out of the city. Why did I volunteer to work on Saturdays until May!

Clearly we need another viking ride, but at night! How could we go about attaching flaming torches to our bicycles?

Also, are there any legal issues with transportingwalking around with flaming torches?

For anyone else who is going to use Google Maps Navigation for Bicycles to get there, this gets within a couple blocks: Merriman St, Pittsburgh, Allegheny, Pennsylvania 15203

GPS coordinates (someone please correct me if this is the wrong place!): +40° 25′ 56.68″, -79° 58′ 32.44″ (40.432412, -79.975678)

Lori, the park is right on the south side river trail that runs from station square to glenwood. If you are trying to get to it from Carson St turn toward the river on 17th and it will take you right there.

A wonderful little event! How many did we have on the ride, six? seven? Then picked up about three more post-ride for pillaging and festivities.

We took a simple tour of trails and couple of bridges: Riverfront Park to Jail Trail, into Downtown, along Fort Pitt Blvd to Commonwealth Place, left at Liberty into Point State Park, south over the Ft Pitt Br to outbound/westbound West Carson, past the Duquesne Incline, looping into Station Square along the trail along the Mon, and back to the park.

Welcome LoriF to The Burgh! I have your corkscrew.

Lucia, thanks for the lift home. I think my helmet stayed in your car, maybe?

Thanks for organizing everything, had a great time!

I know I say this every year, but I’m hoping to do more group riding this year. Especially now that I work about 2 blocks from where the flock starts.

Sad I missed this, I was hanging out in Upstate NY.

But I DID see some rubber duckies at the Moosewood Cafe in Ithaca that were celebrating the Viking, despite not being in Pittsburgh!

Co worker asked me yesterday: “What were you doing on the hot metal bridge with a battle axe?”

Considering I started this job in Feb, I think I’m quickly becoming “that guy.” Not sure if that is good or bad….

Revel in it. I’ve been “that guy” for decades.

that guy-(n) 1.one who enjoys being outside experiencing the world around him rather than being strapped in a metal box decrying traffic conditions. usually physically fit and with a positive attitude.

Which a real, order-able thing. Thought I would pass it on to my viking friends. To bad it isn’t a jersey….
