Well, I’m happy to announce that my short lived DinoRIDE can now evolve into a fully fledged Flock Ride.

As stated above, it’ll be

Friday, July 20th,

Meet at Dippy around 5:30pm, leaving at 6

More details soon

Hooray! This is great news. However, that time is a killer for me. Didn’t previous Flocks depart at 6:30? It was a little tricky getting to Dippy then; it will be a serious challenge to get there before 6. Why the change?

Don’t take this as a criticism, though. I am super stoked that Flock will continue. I just hope I can attend.

It’s Just a slight adjustment, to keep it family friendly time-wise.

This works a little better for me, with my saturday work schedule and all.

Awesome! WOOT!!

Two things I remember/note, re: departure time…

1. On-time departures were rare.

2. Departures took enough time that the flock wasn’t hard to find/catch up with (posting the first few turns might help).

I love Flock speed. I once dropped out of the Flock, went into a store, waited in line, made a purchase, used the restroom and then biked around the block and rejoined the Flock.

I like it because I’m really slow and hate hills!!

Awesome news. That’s great to know — wish I wasn’t out of town.

@tabby – That is too funny.

@ Mr Marv It’s Just a slight adjustment, to keep it family friendly time-wise.

I’m pretty mcuh with rzod – the time is a killer for me. If it’s 6 and it runs late, then maybe I can sometimes (not often) join in.

5:30? Never.

BTW, this time of year the sun doesn’t set until almost 9. In late June, later times are family friendly, IMO.

I originally thought I had to be out of town that day, like I said yesterday… but I did some schedule shuffling, and now it looks like I can be there. YAY!

Did I see the flock making a return trip up Neville at just after 8pm tonight? I assumed it was a group of cyclists going to watch Men In Black in Schenley Park, but I guess maybe it was you people? I honked my horn (it sounds like a squeaky dog toy) at someone towards the front of the flock.

Edit: just so we’re clear, I was on my bike (blue schwinn with baskets on the back).

Side note: despite it being a Wednesday night, the bike lane at Neville & Ellsworth was CAR FREE!

Bummer – my in-laws are visiting so I’ll be hanging out with them. Hopefully next time!

For those not able to make the 6pm departure, there will be a second departure around 6:30pm at the 2nd Ave Park and Ride at the Elisa Furnace trail head

I wish! But they’re taking us to the baseball game. I’m not one to turn down a free ticket and free beer :)

I plan on making it but it will be a challenge to get there in time. still I will attempt it. any chance of posting a route so if Im late I can try to catch up or at least meet you at the final destination.

Never mind, I just saw post of secondary departure at eliza trailhead. see you all there.
