Go pump up your tires and check your brakes, because Bike Fun is coming.
The first Poky Pedal for 2013, the monthly Poky Pedaling Potluck Picnic, is scheduled for this Tuesday, May 21. We’ll be meeting in Goerke Park near the entrance to the swimming pool at 5:15 PM and we’ll start riding at 5:30 PM.
There are no signups and all Poky Pedals are free of charge. Just show up with your bicycle and be ready to share Bike Fun.
We will ride 3 to 5 miles to a mystery park location that is different on each PPPP. Upon arrival, we’ll share a feast and the company of other Poky Pedalers. When we’re ready to go, we’ll ride back to Goerke Park, arriving around dusk.
Many people plan ahead and bring food or drink (no alcohol) to share. Our route always stops at a food store, so if you prefer you can simply bring a few bucks and plan to purchase a picnic contribution there.
Gourmets can whip up a salad or dessert to bring along, but veggies and dip or cheese and crackers or a bag of potato chips or a bottle of juice or soda or whatever else tickles your fancy is just as welcome a contribution.
Poky Pedalers should note that the weather forecast (as of Sunday at 6PM) for Tuesday evening indicates a likely chance for rain and thunderstorms. I am hoping that either the forecast is wrong or that by Tuesday evening the rain diminishes to a mist so that it would still be pleasant to ride to a sheltered picnic location.
Check this blog (or my Twitter feed) for a weather update Monday afternoon and Tuesday before noon. And if it is really borderline, I’ll post an update Tuesday at around 4PM.
I look forward to sharing Bike Fun with all Poky Pedalers. See you on Tuesday.
