It is time again for the Full Moon Bike Ride & BBQ. Join the Bike Bakersfield organization for BBQ in Beach Park at 6pm and/or the Full Moon Ride at 8pm. The food is served at 6 and donations are requested for the BBQ. There is of course a full moon ride every 29 or 30 and we have missed some. May is Bike Month. The weather is perfect for riding and gathering socially. The longer days and later start time make the ride accessible to more people. I had to rush for the 6 pm start time but will have no problem being a bit late this month :) At 8 pm we be joining what should be a large group of riders from Beach Park to the Marketplace at a pace of around 10-12 miles per hour. The ride out is organized and kept together as much as possible. Once a the Marketplace riders enjoy the fountain, shops, and restaurants. Our group meets at Me & Eds Pizza (or Lengthwise?) for beer and/or food if you would like to eat there. The ride back to the Beach Park (or home) is in small, unsupported groups, or on your own. Lights, helmets and locks are recommended.
I’ll be wearing my characteristic yellow jersey and riding my red bike. We’ll meet on the bike path near the water fountain 7:45 (if not sooner) and gather again at the Marketplace for a drink and conversation. Hope to see you there.
