Thanks to the Texas Toast folks for scraps and Dan the handy man for his carpentry skills.
Bring a bike you don't mind getting wet and some flotation device duct taped to your frame if you want to help make this happen and provide some entertainment for your fellow TNSR friends. IF YOU WANT TO JUMP, YOU CANNOT BE IMPAIRED. I'm very serious, we will be checking. There is plenty of time to celebrate after catching some air.
ROUTE: Bikely is down presently. If it doesn't come back up, I'll post it on some other mapping website. Anyone know the story about Bikely?
WHERE AND WHEN: We meet at Festival Beach (http://tinyurl.com/48yq5zu ) Get there around 7:00 for some social time. We take off around 8pm.
WHAT: A bike ride with a bunch of your favorite Thursday Night Bike Friends. We ride, we hang out at parks then we go have some fun at a great bar!
HOW: Social Cycling Austin rides AS traffic and NOT AGAINST it. We stop at red lights, yield the right of way and let cars pass as best we can. We don't block intersections. We are cool to both our fellow riders and the other traffic on the road. Listen up to those volunteers who are helping to lead the ride. They are some nice folks and have you best interest in mind. If you have any questions about our the rules, i suggest you check here: http://bicycleaustin.info/laws/austin.html
REMINDER: The goal has always been to create a safe environment for all riders, but as luck would have it we cannot control, nor do we desire to, every rider's behavior. We promote personal responsibility, and it is each rider's responsibility to take care of themselves, and if they choose to ride with us, then they accept those risks inherent in riding a bicycle with a large group of other people riding bicycles.
WHAT YOU NEED: LIGHTS, LIGHTS, LIGHTS, a lock, a valid ID for the after party, MONEY FOR TIPS (the drinks are cheap, don't you be too)!!!!!!!!!!!
