Topic pretty much says it all, hopefully this isn’t supposed to be secret:

===

Hey All,

At Free-Ride, mostly, we hide out in a dark, dank, corner of

Construction Junction and tinker with bikes there; but sometimes, we

ride those bikes.

If you would like to join us for a bike ride, please do, next week,

Friday, June 8, 7:00 PM at Over the Bars Cafe on Carson Street.

The ride will begin at Over The Bars Cafe and end at the same place.

The route is going to be a sort of ~12 mile triangle, across Hot-Metal

bridge, up towards the Northernmost part of Liberty Avenue, then back

down across the Fort-Pitt Bridge, avoiding major traffic where

possible. Pace will be very moderate – something

[other well known, former ride]/Critical Mass-esq. Route map is attached.

Happy Trails !

What the heck is “Over The Bars”? Hot-Metal. Fort-Pitt.

(Don’t mind me.)
