Ride To Kaboomtown With The Richardson Urban Bicycle Club

Posted in Bicycle Events by dickdavid on July 2, 2010

Since the response was low for a July 4th ride to the Richardson fireworks display at Breckinridge Park, we decided to join up with the Richardson Urban Bicycle Club and their ride to Kaboomtown in Addison.

DATE: Saturday, July 3
TIME: meet 6:30, ride 7:30
PLACE: 12 Burgers & Tacos (in the old Fish on Fire building)

INFO from their Facebook event page:
This is the ride of the year! Get your red, white & blue on and ride with us from Preston & Belt Line to Arapaho & the Tollway where we’ll meet up with a bunch of friends in a parking garage. They will be partying, grilling and having a good old time, so we’ll double the fun by joining them. AND we’ll have a great vantage point for Addison’s annual fireworks display!

Our meeting point is 12 Burgers & Tacos in the old Fish on Fire building (where we met last year). The restaurant is BYOB, as is the parking garage. We plan to meet & eat at 6:30, ride out around 7:30, reach the garage by 8:30 and watch fireworks around 9:30. Then we’ll ride past all the cars stuck trying to exit the garage and get back to 12 Burgers by 11ish.

Since we know you’re itchin’ to get dressed up — costumes and festive red, white & blue attire of all kinds are encouraged. More is more!

Come celebrate your freedom & pursue happiness with us this Saturday night! Pedal on!


This just in from Addison!!!

Weather Update: July 2nd, 4:50pm
Texas weather is always unpredictable. While officials from the Town of Addison continue to carefully monitor the weather situation, we have created the following contingency plan for the Kaboom Town fireworks:

• If rain appears to be intermittent, we will work to complete the Kaboom Town fireworks as close to the scheduled time as possible. However, intervening rain might require a mild change of schedule.

• If rain persists, or if thunderstorms appear, we may need to reschedule the Kaboom Town fireworks for a date yet to be determined. We will alert you as soon as a rescheduled date has been set.

Check back here for additional updates.


So, the plan is to keep the ride, meet when and where we planned. Then, if we think it looks a little dodgy, we can drive to the parking lot NE of Tollway & Arapaho and walk or ride from there. We can reassess when we have a radar map and the sky to look at.
