Thursday Night Social Ride!

http://www.facebook.c... It's official. It's summer. Let's celebrate! This week we are riding in an homage to Aestas, the Roman Goddess of Summer with a bike ride, BBQ, Slip n Slide and a badass outdoor dance party. We are also taking a family portrait at the Capitol. Want to show your friends what 300 bike crazed Texans look like? Bring your camera! Never heard of Aestas? Here is a passage that describes this weeks muse. "She is naked except for a garland of grain or wheat sheaves in her hair." (I believe they have wheat sheaves out at Callahan's General Store for a couple of bucks a bushel for those of you into the dress up theme.) We'll ride bikes, hang out at the Capitol and snap some pics of our sexy bike mob then head down to Club Deville where the Grill Girls are pumping out burgers (portabella burgers for them veggie heads), DJ Digg and and Hobo D are pumping out the jams and the slip n slide will be both slippy and slidey. Lonestar tall boys will be just one dollar. Cancel the other plans you had. This will be a party. A dollar at the door gets you all of this action. (WHAT!?) ROUTE: Out by Wednesday. Or maybe Thursday. WHERE AND WHEN: We meet at Festival Beach (
http://tinyurl.com/48... ) Get there around 7:00 for some social time. We take off around 8pm. WHAT: A bike ride with a bunch of your favorite Thursday Night Bike Friends. We ride, we hang out at parks then we go have some fun at a great bar! HOW: Social Cycling Austin rides AS traffic and NOT AGAINST it. We stop at red lights, yield the right of way and let cars pass as best we can. We don't block intersections. We are cool to both our fellow riders and the other traffic on the road. Listen up to those volunteers who are helping to lead the ride. They are some nice folks and have you best interest in mind. If you have any questions about our the rules, i suggest you check here:
http://bicycleaustin.... REMINDER: The goal has always been to create a safe environment for all riders, but as luck would have it we cannot control, nor do we desire to, every rider's behavior. We promote personal responsibility, and it is each rider's responsibility to take care of themselves, and if they choose to ride with us, then they accept those risks inherent in riding a bicycle with a large group of other people riding bicycles. WHAT YOU NEED: LIGHTS, LIGHTS, LIGHTS, a lock, a valid ID for the after party, MONEY FOR TIPS (the drinks are cheap, don't you be too)!!!!!!!!!!! See you at The Beach! Keith-
