Broadway Village Progressive Dinner

There’s a lot of new, local businesses opening up at the Broadway Village, at the southwest corner of Broadway Blvd. and Country Club. Don’t you think it’s time you learned the easy, stress-free “back way” to Broadway Village from Downtown?? The route is so nice and practically car free. To check it out AND support locally owned businesses like Falora, Sugar Sweet Bakery and Sushi Garden, meet up for a leisurely group bike ride. Empty your bellies and fill your wallets! Let’s go support the local economy!

Meet up: Let’s meet at the corner of N. 6th Ave. and E. 7th Street – right outside Exo Roast and Tap & Bottle. Probably a lot of people who will want to go on this ride will be there anyway.

Time: 6 pm – 8 pm

Route: We’ll head over towards Fourth Avenue and E. 9th Street, hop on the Aviation bike path, go over the Rattlesnake and Basket Bridges, then meander through the new Highland Park bikepath, cross near 18th Street and Kino, hop on the segment of completed Arroyo Chico Bike path, then sneak in to Broadway Village from the south. We will not ride on Broadway Blvd. at any point of this ride – which means we’ll be able to chat with one another without yelling! How civilized!

Dinner plans: Once we arrive at BV – choose your own culinary adventure! Sushi Garden for the Sushi fans, Falora for pizza fans, Sugar Sweet for dessert (we are working with them to stay open a little later than usual so we can stop in and support them on this trip).

Group ride back downtown at 8 pm, but you are of course free to take any route you like back home.

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!
