*Wednesday Night Ride *Lights Mandatory*

Tampa can get boring - but ya just gotta get out and ride sometime. Why not come out and ride with us on what has been the groups signature ride?  Setting it back up to be weekly on  Wednesdays.

This is not a race but a ride at a social pace with re-grouping as needed.

**LIGHTS ONLY** Ride. Meet up at Four Green Fields in Tampa for a night time ride through some of the nice neighborhoods of South Tampa then on to Bayshore for a quick ride out to Ybor. Depending on how the group feels - we'll go out for a loop on Davis Islands or Harbour Island. Take a break in Ybor for a slice of pizza and/or some refreshments and head on back to Four Green Fields. The parking lot is behind the pub, but can get full fast - you may want to park at the Publix on Platt St or in the lot NE of S. Plant Ave and W. Platt St to avoid any hassles with the pub owners or Publix. One or more of us will ride back and forth between the two.

*LIGHTING EQUIPMENT [§316.2065(8)] A bicycle operated between sunset and sunrise must be equipped with a lamp on the front exhibiting a white light visible from 500 feet to the front and both a red reflector and a lamp on the rear exhibiting a red light visible from 600 feet to the rear. Additional lighting is permitted and recommended. $35 fine if the police care to be friendly. As always, helmets are highly encouraged, and iPods discouraged (HEADSET NOT TO BE WORN [§316.304] A cyclist may not wear a headset, headphone or listening device, other than a hearing aid, while riding.)

    I arrived at 7:00 p.m. and found no one...I rode from my condo. at Dale Mabry & Gandy and took Bayshore - found the Publix - did not find the dry cleaners...but found 205 W. Platt St. - went around the back of Publix...at any rate, next time I will not be biking from my place - I'll be there w/my car and bring my bike w/me. I hope you had a good ride!!

      I guess I've got to better describe where we meet at - in the parking lot from Four Green Fields. We waited until about 5 after and headed on out. Ride was great until we got about 1/2 way through the Davis Islands loop and I flatted, tried fixing it and immediately flatted again. Gave up and we all went home after Laura and the other Dawn Marie went back to get Laura's car and pick me up.

    Those of you who want to go on the night rides, then you should go. This is one of the best rides I have ever been on. You have so much fun, you are able to talk with other members while riding, and we have always stopped for pizza and a beer. Enjoy yourself.

    I really hate to write this, but I will have to bow out of all night rides. I take care of my mother, and she is so afraid that something will happen to me. I love this night ride! It is 1 of the best. I can do day rides, but not on Saturdays.
