Everyone, that includes fixed gear riders, cruisers, 3 speeders, tandem riders, roadies, families, and even funky recumbent riders, you are all invited to Fort Worth on Saturday, October 17th, for a leisurely, slow paced, ride around Fort Worth. The ride is free. We will start at 10 AM at the Texas & Pacific (T&P) railway station located at 221 W. Lancaster Ave. in Fort Worth. Hopefully, with the start being at the train station, riders from other areas of the metroplex will be encouraged to attend. Here's a link to the train schedule.
The ride, which still has yet to be named, is being organized by a group of Dallas/ Fort Worth area bike bloggers. We're still working out some of the minor details, but here's what we have come up with so far:
The ride will be a total of 13 miles or less with few small hills if any.
We will ride south from downtown to Magnolia Avenue stopping briefly at Panther City Bicycles.
We'll then be heading south through the Fairmont area over to Colonel's Bicycles near TCU for another quick visit.
The route will then take us north on the Trinity Trails to our main destination, lunch at La Familia (for you vegetarians, La Familia serves veggie tacos and chalupas).
We will then make the short ride back through downtown to the final stop at the Fort Worth Water Gardens. The Water Gardens are just a stones throw away from the T&P station.
If you've never ridden in Fort Worth before this is a great opportunity to ride along with some locals and catch some interesting sights that you probably wouldn't find while riding on your own.
I will post ride updates throughout the week. Keep checking back. This should be fun.
