On this second week of the Downtown Summer Concert Series. we will dance to The Retro Sonics.
8os Pop? Totally! This is the dancable music that flooded the airwaves 20 to 30 years ago. The Retro Sonics play the big hits and the cool B sides from the well-known bands to the one hit wonders. Have a blast dancing to songs by Duran Duran, Depeche Mode, Berlin, The Cars, (and many more)! They will fill the dance floor every time.

But first - we ride!
We will ride from Ziggi's downtown location beginning at 5:30pm. The ride's moderate pace (*see below) will take us east along the St. Vrain Greenway to Sandstone Ranch as we ride portions of the the Longmont Loop. We will return to 4th and Main using streets with bike lanes, residential streets and multi-use paths, just in time for the music to begin. This ride will be about 15 miles long, your mileage will vary. Please arrive a few minutes early and have your tires inflated and your bike ready to depart at 5:30.
A variation of this ride will repeat throughout the Summer. Each ride will begin approximately 1 1/2 hours before each concert. Look for future rides on June 21, June 28, July 5 and July 26.
*This ride is rated as a "Blue Square". The ride's "moderate pace" will be faster than the Bike Night cruiser rides but slower than the Early Morning Wakeup rides... about 10 - 12 mph average. This is a "no drop" ride, so there will be pauses to keep everyone together. Bringing young children along is NOT recommended due to the pace and distance.
