Report: Last Friday’s First Friday Ride

The first First Friday ride was a blast! We had 19 riders so we split into 2 groups. The object is to have a small enough group that it’s easy to communicate between front and rear riders and for the whole group to make it through a traffic signal. We decided to ride the same loop with one group riding clockwise and the other counterclockwise. We passed each other on Maguire, with lots of cheering and fanfare.

Both groups had a great ride — positive interactions with motorists — and returned triumphant! We’ll plan to meet at the same location October 1.

Afterward, most of us headed to Ethos for dinner and more socializing… and a toast to Kitzzy’s birthday. We filled the space in front with our bikes.

We have a really terrific community and it’s getting richer all the time.
