We're scheduled to kick off our ride on May 18th. As fate would have it, that's also the official "Bike To Work" day. I'm sure Hopkins has a good many folks participating in Bike-to-Work, BUT, if you want to participate in OUR event----we'll show you just as good a time.

We're going to start at "One World Cafe" on University Parkway, and we plan on leaving between 8:15-8:30. One World opens at 8:00 and it will give you some time to stop in and pick up a juice or something. Since we'll be leaving a little later than you might be used to (or not), maybe you can give your supervisor and/or co-workers a heads-up. But I ask you, how can they put the kabash on such a healthy activity?!

There will be a sign-in sheet, and also a bike waiver sheet (in case you bulldoze into a bus, or heaven forbid, vice versa). Please bring a helmut! And check your tires the night before. Air is definitely a plus with bicycle tires. We can easily work our way to the Jones Falls Trail and make our way to Guilford Ave. From Guilford, we come down (take a shortcut on Madison) and come up on Monument. If you're uncomfortable riding on Monument, feel free to take the sidewalk. Going back home will take a little longer, since we'll be going back another route. (Madison Ave.- the quicker route tends to be tight and crowded during rush hour. I never go home that way. Will give you the going home route later).

If you have any questions or comments, let me know. No really, don't be a stranger. We'll ride with whoever shows up. Hope that it's you.
