I hope y’all have saved the date for Cyclefest 2010: Tour de Taco on July 17th!!! The route and stops along the way have been determined. Keep reading for the full details:
We will meet at 3400 15th Ave S (a.k.a. Powderhorn Park) on Saturday, July 17th, 2010, at 11:00 AM. We’ll cycle as a group to the following locations:
What is it? Cyclefest 2010: Tour de Taco is a bunch of normal peeps who happen to enjoy 3 things: Bikes, Ice Cream, Tacos. We will meet at Powderhorn Park, then zig-zag on bikes across South Minneapolis stopping at a couple of our favorite locally owned ice-cream and taco joints. At each stop, we eat ice cream & tacos, chat it up, and take a break. Then we ride to the next treat.
Who is invited? Anyone! Everyone! Invite your friends! In a bold move, I’m encouraging my social circles to collide for one day only. So whether I know you from school, church, the interwebs, or somewhere else, it doesn’t matter. Hopefully we’ll all meet some new people and make some new friends.
What cycling skill level is required? The official route is 14.2 miles long, the majority of which utilizes off-street trails. Families & kids are invited and encouraged. If you don’t think you’re up for the whole 14 miles, let me know, and we’ll make arrangements for you to complete only the portion of the route you’re most interested in. Maybe you just meet us at the first stop, ride with us to the second stop, and head home from there (or maybe you meet us at Lake Calhoun, ride with us for tacos, then head home after that… or whatever…) The full route and each of the stops can be found here.
Bring a friend and a bike! See you at 11:00 AM.
