Friday's weather looks awful so we'll reschedule for Friday, April 26.

Last year the Metro Department of Public Works repaved Riverside Drive and moved the bike lane to the left side of the road next to the median. They made promises to every neighborhood group they would install "armadillos" to create a "protected" bike lane. (See photo of an armadillo- they have hard shells but don't have tails).

We will meet at the Shelby Bottoms Nature Center and cruise down Riverside Drive in search of armadillos. We will regroup at Vinyl Tap Bar at the corner of Porter Road and Greenwood Avenue to partake of a libation and discuss the success or failure of the expedition.

The ride is canceled by bad weather or I get a better offer. I'll let you know by noon that Friday.
