Take a spin and avoid the Black Friday crowds.

Please join us for an impromptu, casual ride to signify the kick-off of Bike Friendly Richardson.

We will be taking a spin through some quiet west Richardson neighborhoods. The pace will be casual and the route will be on low traffic roads.

We’ll start and finish at Santa’s Village (at the fountain in front of The Richardson Civic Center). The loop will be about 10 miles with a small Starbuck’s break in the middle.

    Sounds like a good time. Assuming I’ve finished sleeping off the previous night’s gorging, I’ll see you all there.

    Can’t make it this time, will be in Houston. But keep the rides coming. I’m in Plano, so it’ll be easier for me to get to than to BFOC (still plan to do a lot of Dallas rides though).

      Sorry you can’t make this one. There will definitely be more runs in the future – even a few up through Plano. Although we’re Richardson based, it’s all about discovering how nice it is to ride around north Dallas.

    Sorry, I will be out of town but can’t wait for the next one.

    Dang! Out of town and you are riding right by my house.

    Would have loved to go on this one.

      Sorry to hear that. Hopefully, we’ll be doing more rides soon. With this event, I’d love to get feedback as to what type of rides folks want to participate in.
