So, to further complicate things, the weather is squirrelly today. Since I can't access this website during the work day, if the weather looks questionable as ride time approaches you can contact me via e-mail ([masked]) or on my cell [masked]). A final decision, ride or not, will be made by 4 p.m.
There's good news and there's bad news.
The Bad News: Since our trusted leaders have determined that shutting down the government is the thing to do, we won't be riding from Hillside to Peninsula. (The Towpath is 'officially' closed.) While I think we probably could ride, my sensible Virgo side says that it might not be a good idea to tempt fate and get ticketed, or arrested, for trespassing.
The Good News: We'll still ride (same time) but we'll start in the parking lot at Yours Truly in Independence (or it might be Valley View). We'll ride north to Steelyard Commons and then back to Champps for dinner (and to watch the Browns game!) This isn't as far round trip. but it should still be an enjoyable ride.
Hope you'll join us!
P.S. It figures Moses leaves me in charge and all hell breaks loose. Also, if you need to contact me, my cell number is[masked]-7797. I won't have access to the Spokes n Jokes page on Thursday. Our IT department frowns upon Social Networking sites and I only own a stupid phone!
(I'm leaving the rest of the description below so Moses doesn't need to retype it for future rides!)
Our weekly Towpath Ride will be called Thursday Night Steaks. Fisher's Cafe in Peninsula features an 8 oz Strip Steak, with choice or soup or salad and a side all for 8.99. What better way to get you ready for the weekend than a relaxing Towpath Ride followed by dinner on the patio? Don't eat red meat? No Problem, the menu caters to all. So you get a good work out, a great meal and some laughs just for coming aboard. See you there!
Cant make the ride? Join us for dinner at the cafe at 7:15.
We depart at 6:00pm . Rain cancels. Bike light a good idea.
Crushed Limestone Surface. Easy Social Ride.
We will stop at Brecksville Station at 6:30 for those that want a shorter ride.
