Pics From The Cruise To The Cottonwood

Posted in Bicycle Events by dickdavid on May 1, 2010

It was a small group today for the Cruise To The Cottonwood (Art Festival). The Cottonwood Art Festival went up against the MS150 and the possibility of bad weather. Fortunately, the weather was perfect for a nice cruise through Richardson. Even though this was a one way ride, some of us hung out for a couple of hours and then took a return trip to the Galatyn Park.

The one thing we need to work on is promoting this group to more locals. Today’s ride had more folks from Allen and Arlington than from Richardson. Awareness will be our biggest priority.

Here are some pics from the ride:

    Looks like a good ride. Sorry I couldn’t join you guys. My big ride kicks off tomorrow, so I headed down to Houston today.

    Assuming I survive the ride to New Orleans, I’ll hit up the next ride with you guys.

      No worries. Good luck with the big ride. Take lots of pics and we’ll do a blog post when you get back.

    Try Art & Seek (not sure if these events qualify, but worth a shot). Put up fliers around town (start in all of the bike shops, libraries, rec centers, etc, half price book store, etc.). Put it in the newspaper and local tv and radio stations as well.

    I’m going to make it to one of your rides. I’m glad the weather cooperated.
