Hey Everybody! We're back!
Love bikes? Let’s go for a ride together – a ride that’s for everyone, all abilities, ages, and every kind of (non-motorized) bike.
We’re calling it a Slow Roll because we’re going to move slow.
Slow, so no one gets left behind and slow so we can all take in the scenery. You know… a “stop and smell the roses” kind of pace.
So bring your bike to Mudsharks at 6pm on August 25.
If you'd like to decorate your bike, come a little early and we'll have decorations - balloons, streamers, etc. And we’ll hit the streets together for a short group ride at 6pm.
We’ll start and end at Mudsharks so you can hang out downtown afterwards. Grab a drink or grab dinner with family or new friends. Go check out the Friday Night Market on Ducan!
Other fun things you can do:
-Attach a speaker to your bike & share some tunes that are good for cruising
-Tell your friends and get them to come along
-Bring extra decorations … we’ll have streamers and balloons
Route to come but it’ll be about 30-60 minute slow ride.
To keep everyone safe we ask that you obey the following rules:
- Pay attention to volunteers
- Keep to the right side of the street
- Stay alert and be aware
- Roll Slow
- Never litter
- Play music respectfully
- Don’t show off
- Obey traffic signals
- Make new friends and have fun.
