The cold fronts have begun coming in and even though we’re just below three-digits, I can foresee the day when the shorts and tank-tops take the back rung of the closet again.
The *official* Last Day of Summer 2012 is Friday September 21st, but we’re pushing it back a week. The city’s Complete Streets project is transforming Knox for a weekend and it’s the perfect excuse for one last outdoor summer fling – sun, shorts, beer, bikes…. So we’re biking over to Knox for the afternoon to check out the cycle track bike lanes and have a drink on the patio.
We’ll start at Main Street Gardens, leaving about 4pm, and this time we’re opening the route to folks who want to simply join us along the way as we ride through the neighborhoods. From Main Street Gardens we’ll be biking up Olive, through the Arts District, and up Routh to McKinney Ave, then straight up McKinney to Knox.
And although we’ll be taking a leisurely pace and are sure to hit a few red lights, we’ll also linger at a few spots along the way in case you’d like to meet us at: the Arts District, Routh & McKinney, in the parking lot of Albertson’s, or at Cole Park.
Join us Saturday September 29th for one of the last and best chillaxing rides of the summer to check out a vision of Knox Street’s future.
