Black Friday Ride #3

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 third annual Black Friday Ride. Started three 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 route will be around 10 miles and goes through Spring Creek Park, where you can enjoy the colors of fall. We’ll end the ride back at the Shops at Eastside, where you can enjoy some tasty food or grab a cold one at Twisted Root Burgers.

    Hi,

    I’ve noticed the Bike Friendly on many of the websites in the DFW area. Can you give me some insight into that?

      Here’s the quick story: Starting with Oak Cliff, A bunch of cyclist in the Dallas/Fort Worth area got tired of our reputation of being one of the worst cities in America for cycling. They got together as a bunch of grass roots groups doing their part to bring non-sport cycling and cycling awareness to the area. The term “Bike Friendly”, in this case, is more aspirational.

        I like the concept, it shows unity through out the Dallas area. We may “borrow” your concept or something similar.

        We are starting a bike coalition for the Rio Grande Valley and the first order of business is a memorial ride for the two Mormon’s that were killed recently here.
