Ride details for Sunday

So for the first official ride of 2011 we will meet at the corner of Hillside and Mount Clare Ave in the parking lot there and have nice and "easy" ride around town. We will meet at 4:30 and leave around 4:40, be sure to dress for the weather and if it snows or is completely unbearable outside I'll post a cancellation, so check the web before you come. We should be done by about 6:30 so you can get home in time for Celebrity Apprentice or what ever is on TV these days. If you need help finding the place shoot me an email: with your phone number and I'll try to help you out. I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone this weekend.

Bicycle Benefits and New Sunday Rides

Today the "Pedal Punks Team" did an awesome job in the Bicycle Benefits scavenger hunt coming in second place and winning the coveted Sweet Potato Trophy of Second Placedness. If you don't know about Bicycle Benefits check out they're website It's an awesome organization that gives you some sweet discounts at local businesses just for riding your bike and slapping a sticker on your helmet.

Second order of business:
Due to a renewed interest in Bikes and Beer (honestly, how do you ever lose interest in either of these things), we are going to continue our tradition of Sunday rides but we will conclude the rides with a drink and the fabulous and cycle friendly Bywater on Riverside. We'll have our first official 2011 scheduled ride on Sunday the 23rd at 4:30 unless we get some requests to do it earlier. We'll continue rides on every 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month instead of weekly rides. That'll give me time to plan rides and keep the rides fresh. Hope to see you guys next Sunday. Great job team.



Here are some pics from the ride

We had to gather at least 4 people with different eye colors and make them perform a song in front of the Pack Square Obelisk and the pig had to make it into the video too for some reason.
