The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere

Come out and ride for the revolution!
On Friday April 18, we’ll re-enact Paul Revere’s ride, galloping through the night on our bikes, hollering as loud as ever we can: “THE BRITISH ARE COMING! THE BRITISH ARE COMING!”
We’ll start with a tea party at 10:30PM, and ride at 11PM.
There will probably be ale, the drink of Revolutionaries.

On the evening of April 18, 1775, Paul Revere was instructed to ride to Lexington, Massachusetts, to warn Samuel Adams and John Hancock that British troops were marching to arrest them. On the way to Lexington, Revere “alarmed” the country-side, stopping at each house, and arrived in Lexington about midnight. As he approached the house where Adams and Hancock were staying, a sentry asked that he not make so much noise. “Noise!” cried Revere, “You’ll have noise enough before long. The regulars are coming out!”

STEELy Dan Bike Ride

Do you ride a STEEL bike? Do you enjoy the smooth, jazzy riffs of STEELy Dan? Then join us for the STEELy Dan Bike Ride! Let’s meet at the Mercado San Agustín and admire all that made in the US STEEL Streetcar track. We can talk about – and practice! – how to safely cross the tracks and avoid falls on bicycles.

Next, we’ll go for a leisurely ride along some of the Santa Cruz Bike Path and that tiny portion of the El Paso & Southwestern Greenway where we can admire some defunct STEEL railroad track. We’ll loop through the Barrios Viejo and Santa Rosa – all while grooving out to a great playlist filled with STEELy Dan hits!

Let’s wrap up the ride at Barrio Brewing Company, not far from Santa Rita STEEL yard and watch the Iron Horses while we drink beers. Maybe we can ask Barrio to play our soundtrack!
