I took the opportunity today to join a group for a ride through downtown and ending at Fred's Texas Cafe, a local landmark. I've got to say that until very recently, easy paced group rides in Fort Worth were practically unheard of, or at least they weren't advertised to the general public. Now it seems that there's a ride happening practically every week. That's progress! I believe much of the credit for this has to go to Bike Friendly Oak Cliff which has spawned a slew of Bike Friendly groups across the U.S. and even the world (New Zealand).
Here are some photos from today's ride:
I felt like riding something different today. With this being an easy paced ride I dusted off the Raleigh Folder. The problem with the Folder is that there is nowhere to carry a water bottle. I had to improvise.
Everybody grabbed some shade waiting for the group to reform. Did I mention that it was about 100 degrees today?
Locking up the bikes.
***I've recently started moderating comments to my blog. I had been receiving lots weird comments in Chinese with links to questionable sites. As a result I noticed a couple of legitimate comments ended up in my spam filter and weren't discovered till this morning. I apologize for this and hope that you guys don't think I was being rude. I get pretty busy and can't always respond to comments but I want to be sure that your comments are visible.
