Heya folks. The day after Christmas should be a good day for a ride, so I went ahead and scheduled a Country Bike Ramble! Here are the details:
COUNTRY BIKE (IN THE CITY) RAMBLE: PENINSULA VERSION
Thursday December 26th 10:30am
meet at Omaha Ave Greenway , N Omaha Ave at N Killingsworth St (We'll meet at the southernmost tip of this park strip on Omaha Ave.)
A ramble exploring the "country" aspects in the city while riding "Country" bikes. Expect a good deal of gravel/dirt action, meandering, and places you didn't think existed. We'll have an indoor food/beverage break along the way for warming up and refreshing. Ride a bike geared towards comfort, not speed, and one that can handle off-road elements. Moderate pace, no one left behind. Lycra and carbon, no, wool and shellac, yes. Estimated 30 miles with not a lot of climbing. Ride not a loop, but will end near transit and beer.
For those of you interested in a good pre-ride breakfast, meet me at Beaterville, 2201 N Killingsworth St, which is one block east @ N Gay Ave. I'll be there at 9:30am. If you want something less sit-down like, Blend Cafe is four blocks west of the Omaha Greeway at 2710 N Killingsworth St. Just make sure you get to the park around 10:30am!
Feel free to give me a heads-up if you think you'll be coming. Hope to see some of you fine folk there!
