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.

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

It was a perfect day to ride. The temperature stayed in the mid 50s, the sun was shining and the wind was somewhat minimal. Twenty-one cyclists ranging in all skill levels, wearing everything from denim to lycra took part in the second Black Friday Ride. We had riders from all over DFW – including Richardson, Dallas, Garland, Denton and Arlington. Some folks enjoyed Fuzzy’s Taco before the ride and some folks stayed after to enjoy a snack and some cold beer. We really enjoyed seeing everybody and thank you for coming out.

Black Friday Ride No. 2

Tomorrow is looking to be a nice day for the Black Friday Ride. It’ll be sunny and cool so you probably won’t even break a sweat.

As a special treat, we’re working with Tripledub Images to help us capture the face of the Richardson (and Dallas) bike community. At one of our stops, Wendy will be taking individual pics of anybody who wants a photo with their bike.

For those of you who want to know the route in advance, here is a map of the ride. As promised, we will be experiencing all of the different types of routes available for Richardson cyclists: back roads, trails and bike lanes.

If you are on Facebook, let us know you are coming. I hope to see you at Fuzzy Taco Shop (561 West Campbell Road), tomorrow at 3:30.
