March 2018 BLUE MOON ride
March 31, 2018 @ 8:30 pm - April 1, 2018 @ 2:00 am
The March Blue Moon.
Likeliness it will be warmer, maybe the end will be different.
The route will be posted a few days before the ride.
Try to get to the ride at 8:00PM. WE WILL ROLL OUT AT 9.
Parking: Parking by the Lloyd Hall is fine if you park after 8PM. It is 2 hour parking to 10PM (during the week). Sedgley Road is ok to park all day (but I think in the winter it is 3 hour parking, or was). Some bars are kind of far away, and maybe parking by the ending bar works too, if there is a good parking place.
Speed: This ride is normally around 14 mph or so. There will be catch up stops. No one will be left behind, intentionally. Any bike is just fine for the ride as long as it is safe to ride.
Helmets and lights: Encouraged but not required.
Tools: bring tubes for your bike. Someone will have tools
Following traffic laws: Also recommended epecially if in a left behind group. The route is mostly on lightly used roads/intersections where traffic is light at this time of the night.
Other riding safety issues: Trolley tracks plague the city and we will be crossing at least one set of tracks. Pot holes, holes in general, man-hole lids, water access, etc are all hazards riders should try avoiding. There will be glass that can cause flats.
Children: I don’t recommend.
**Ride at your own risk**
The route can be approximately 10 miles. It will not always be as long. The rides may be up to 15 miles depending on where the route goes past. I try to keep the rides unique.
There will be a mid-point rest stop. I try to find different places every month. The rest stop can be safe, or even unsafe and dark.
The end stop will be at a random bar. It won’t always be at the same bar. The main goal is a cheap bar, but the other goal is a safe place and bike locking.
Always stay tuned to this event page for updates and any other information.
