Ice Cream Night Ride

As a commuter community, riding our bikes to work is both fun and exiting.  I presume that many are of the typical daylight commuters.  If not, then you know how much FUN night rides can be.

For some this may be a whole new experience.  Posted in our forum were several ideas about doing a ride that would actually go somewhere.   How about an  Ice Cream Ride?

    Just got all the nuts and bolts tightened back up on my bike after riding Summerlin Ave. (%$^&U$ Google) Should have checked street level first.

    Guess we’ll have to reroute to Orange Ave to Livingston instead. Had a pleasant ride on this route though.

    The route’s getting better 😉

    Depending on the make-up of the group, we can improvise a few more miles, if desired.

    This will be a fun opportunity to get together and check out lighting set-ups. Perhaps Lisa will bring the Down Low Glow… it is really cool!

    A few thoughts: be legal, have a front and rear light; we will obey all traffic control devices; there will be plenty of people who will make sure nobody gets left behind anywhere, so don’t be nervous about that.

    Add Jerimiah’s to the list of places to visit at night — a gelati (flavored shaved ice with ice cream) is a great treat!! Not too far off the Cady Way trail …..

    Rodney: let’s use more back-streets on the routes — more fun that way!!!

    I’m open for September 28 or 29th. I guess we can start with those that can and arrange other rides/other nights as it gains popularity and participation.

    Don’t forget to bring a spare tube, patch kit, and pump. Confirm a date and meet-up time and let’s RIDE!

    Andrew, winding through the neighborhoods can be fun if the group is small. The downside is abundant stop signs on the quiet residential streets. I recommend avoiding 2-lane collectors with a group because groups are hard to pass, and this won’t be a tight paceline, either. With light traffic, the 4-lane roads are pleasant and it’s nice to not have to worry about accommodating overtaking traffic.

    I’d stay on Primrose and go down Curry Ford rather than use the side-streets; crossing Curry Ford without a signal could be dicey. Coming back north, turn left from Summerlin onto South, and take south to Rosalind — or, if you want to avoid to the bike lane, to Magnolia. Then take Robinson instead of Livingston; allows two-abreast riding.
