Wednesday - Bike Night - 7pm Start - Mardi Gras theme
Last week we had between 130 and 135 people out in the rain. If you weren't there you missed out on what I think was one of the funnest if not the funnest, Bike Night ever. It dumped atleast an inch to two of warm summer rain while we celebrated Christmas in July. The ride was capped off with hail. White Christmas - YES!
This week we will meet at Roosevelt Park at 7pm. The theme is Mardi Gras, bring your best costume and we'll supply the bling. Oskar Blues has donated a lot of "can bling" look for a photo in the coming days. Also - there will be a face painter at Roosevelt at 6pm. Come early and get your face painted or, your child's or any combination thereof.
Also - Keep the weekend of July 29th free - specifically Satuday July 30th. We're going to take part in the "Coloradon's Cruiser weekend". City Council has or will repeal the "no cruising" ordinance in Longmont for that night. I'm planning a Cruiser ride for that Saturday night. We will meet at 7pm at Roosevelt Park. My theory is that the custom cars and other cruisers will slow traffic on Main so that we may be able to make a few passes.
More to follow.
In addition we found out RAAM - Race Across AMerica - is planning a qualifier race begining and ending in Longmont. They've asked us to do a cruiser ride based in Prospect. We're hoping to partner with the Prospect Peddlers to do this ride. Look for that on August 6th. More info to follow. This ride will be free and will most likely begin and end in Prospect.
Lots going on! See you on Wednesday at 7pm.
