Welcome to Tuesday night! Just 24 hours until the next installment of Bike Night kicks off. We began last week at 4th & Terry. This was the first start from a different location in over 10 years. I'd say it went pretty well. Thank you to everyone who found the location and to those of you way-finders who found us.
Last week as you know was our Flash Mob Bike Ride and I'd say it went swimmingly. The counts for riders were upward to 180ish people. Nice work. I've posted the chicken dance video from Youtube! Enjoy.
|Bike Night - 2013|
This week we do our part as bike riders to celebrate the le Tour de EPO, errr, I mean France. Therefore, you are encouraged to dawn your best lycra,jersey, or otherwise (Bronco's, Nuggets, Rockies, Rapids, the Lacrosse team, USA Pro Jersey whatever) and join us on Wednesday night.
I am going to try and piece together something with Bob Roll and Phil Leggit, so wish me luck.....
Because so much of everything revolving around "THE" tour could be likened to a circus, we might as well have fun, too! So Bike Night, Bicycle Longmont and DQ are presenting the first ever le Tour DQ. (It's funny. You should be laughing now!).
We will begin at Roosevelt Park somewhere between the Senior Center and the Memorial Building at 6:30pm. Why not 4th & Terry? Because we didn't include non-Bike Night's in our insurance rider. So, we're back to Roosevelt for this one time special ride.
PLEASE Bring or get a headlight for your bike, especially for the kids, and helmets are encouraged. The ride will be longer than Bike Night and we will finish later than typical.
le Tour DQ will be about 13 miles probably a little more with weaving and random departures from the route. Follow the previous link to view the most likely route. We will swing pass Roosevelt on our way south to the Hover DQ. At that time - Parents, guardians, friends, countrymen, with kids, needing a break, can bail out early. Otherwise - we will be on our way south to the Ken Pratt Boulevard/Hover DQ!
We will depart the south DQ destined for our end point - the downtown DQ.
Disclaimer - you do not need to buy ice cream at every stop, or, at any of the stops. Like Bike Night - there is no need to spend money to have fun on a bike.
We will have coupons for free blizzards - AND - we'll have some other cool things for people to win.
We will have a prize for
Best lit bike,
Most creative use of the term French! (Remember, there will be kids there......)
Until I remember some other detail...... We'll see you tomorrow night at 6:30pm for BIKE NIGHT!
