The time listed is the RIDE OUT time! Please be there early enough to get your bike and yourself ready to ride out by then. Call me if you are on your way and will be there very close to this time. [masked]
If you don't make it on time, the route is simple. Ride east on Park Avenue, cross Broadway. Turn left on 3rd Street to Chouteau, right on Chouteau to the river, left to ride up the riverfront to the trailhead of the Riverfront Trail. From there, the ride will be out and back on the trail and then return on the streets to Park Avenue Coffee. Note that there are a couple of detours on the RFT. One gets us around the I-70 bridge construction and the other is the continuing 1/4 mile of packed dirt, gravel, and sand around the remediation sight under the McKinley bridge.
Ride out time: 5:30 pm (bring lights)
Meet at Park Avenue Coffee or at the little park across the street.
Park in the parking lots by Square One, or SqWires, or on the street around Lafayette Park. It would be nice to leave the parking spots along Park Avenue for the business traffic, please.
Front and rear lights are required. Sundown can sneak up on us so you should have lights to be seen.
Bring water and any emergency food bars to get you back. Have a flat repair kit and a spare tube is recommended.
This is a group ride. No riders will be dropped. Fast riders may lose the group and miss out on the first round of drinks at the after ride meeting. ;-)
After ride activities will be discussed at the ride. Possibilities include burger night at Square One, SqWires, Ricardo's, PW Pizza, HandleBar, and many others.
