G’knight Ride Wrap Up – & - Bike Night Brings the Jammies!

Well here we are on the other side of another great G’Knight Ride. I’m sitting here eating my lunch and thinking about the fun and excitement that led up to the best damn cruiser fest in Northern Colorado

I really love the Monday after the event. This is the time where people get to ask their co-workers, “What did you do this weekend?”  I just know every G’Knight rider smiled & said, “Well…. Let me tell ya!”

So I’m askin’? Leave a comment below and tell everyone your favorite part.

I think mine was seeing everything coming together, transforming Prospect Park into “party central”.  Raising the big screen and seeing all the smiling faces shining back. Having a beer grooving to the Samples, rockin’ to Runnin’ with Scissors. Maybe it was rollin’ through Longmont’s coolest neighborhoods, seeing neighbors in lawn chairs watching the parade, or seeing lil’ kids selling Lemonade. Or maybe being just one of the masses at The Tasty Weasel & Lefthand Brewery. Of course there was 5th & Main, too. Mmmmm. Donuts.
Anyway you look at it, the G’Knight Ride is fast becoming a hallmark event in Longmont!

As we close the chapter on the G’Knight Rdie and begin reading people’s G’Knight stories, we get to start looking toward Longmont’s weekly cruiser ride – BIKE NIGHT!  It’s coming up fast.

This Wednesday we’ll do a destination ride – Old Town to Oskar Blues’ Tasty Weasel. As you might recall, Wednesdays in June are “Ride Wednesday’s” which means when you buy a beer at either the Tasty Weasel or Lefthand Tap House, show them your helmet and Bicycle Longmont will get a buck!


You may be wondering what the theme is, well being that this is our Solstice Ride – you’ll be out late, so jump in your jammies and ride to Roosevelt. Our route this week will take in a little Old Town, then make the trek to the Tasty Weasel.

For those folks not wanting to ride all the way to the Tasty Weasel, we’ll have a bail out as we pass Roosevelt a second time on our way ‘round the neighborhood. See the map for the route.

As always we’ll meet at 6:30PM in front of the Senior Center. This is also the week where we typically start at 7pm. To honor that commitment we will pass through the park again at 7:15ish. This will be great for those wanting to start at 7pm.

So bring your jammies, I’ll bring the jams, and we’ll all rock to the Weasel.
