Black Friday Ride #4

It’s that time of year again. It’s the time to AVOID all the big crowds at the shopping mall, work off that Thanksgiving dinner and have a fun ride around town.

You are invited to attend Bike Friendly Richardson‘s FOURTH annual Black Friday Ride. Started four years ago as the inaugural ride that launched Bike Friendly Richardson, the Black Friday Ride gives folks an alternative way to kick off the holiday season. This is a casual paced ride that will explore many of the different route options available to Richardson cyclists. We will ride on back-roads, side-streets, multi-purpose trails and available bike lanes.

Come on out to the Shops at Eastside, enjoy a tasty lunch at Chiloso, Russo’s Italian Kitchen, Urban Eatz or Panera Bread, then meet us at the fountain around 1:00 pm.

The first part of the route will be around 10 miles and stops at Dal Rich (Whole Foods) shopping center for a nice break.

The return ride, back at the Shops at Eastside, will be around 6 miles.

DATE: Friday, November 23, 2012
TIME: Arrive: 1:00 pm, Ride: 1:30 pm
START/FINISH: Shops At Eastside – 700 E. Campbell Road @ Central (meet at the fountain)

Trail Hazard Alert

Trail Hazard

If you happen to be cruising along the DART trail, close to East Side, watch for the big boulder in the way. This was apparently a landscaping decoration that was somehow dragged onto the trail. I’d hate to see what the other guy looked like.

Be careful out there.
