This Tuesday, leaving at 5:30 PM from the Statehouse, the first Critical Manners bike ride will set off. It will be a relaxed 10 mile ride, ending at Surly Girl. The route covers the east side. Please post here so they get a good head-count. The idea of this ride, as I understand it, is to promote good bike riding, such as taking the lane and stopping at red lights. Details below.
Consider Biking C. Manners Route
Members of Consider Biking will be leading a Critical Manners ride on October 7, 5:30 PM starting at the William McKinley Monument on the west lawn of the Statehouse. The ride will be approximately 10 miles, ending at Surly Girl Saloon.
This will be a relaxed, friendly ride open to all. We have several riders who will be leading and providing guidance if you are wary of riding on road. A basic refresher of road rules will be offered by a LAB certified instructor.
We’ve done our best to identify a friendly route that should be pretty painless for all involved. A nice eastward tour of Old Town East, the edge of Bexley and back through the CSCC area and into the Arena District and Short North.
