We’re meeting at Transit Bikes on Blackburn at McKinney Ave so you can arrive early to air your tires, lube your chain, buy a basket, and get that red flashing rear light you’ve been meaning to buy.
At about 1:00pm we’ll leave Transit for our first boutique stop at the newDemerara before heading to Henderson for Gypsy Wagon, Another Time & Place,Pandemonium!, and We Are 1976. Around 4pm we should be ready to bike back to the West Village.
There will be holiday cookies, wine, cheese and snacks along the way and some good store discounts including 10% off at Gypsy Wagon and 60% off at Another Time & Place since they’re moving.
If this is your first adventure to the West Village by bike here are some handy directions from the Katy Trail and the Cityplace DART Station.”
