I heard on good info that they start the second Tuesday in April: April 10. Heard the first rides would be at 6 pm not 6:30, but I'd check that. The free post-ride bbq and beer on the first Tuesday of the month will start in May, that would be May 1, May Day.

(This is a good opportunity, Btw, newbies, to do a hill ride under somewhat controlled conditions and to meet a hundred or more cycling and tri enthusiasts.)

(And jfiess: Freshbikes has restrooms for you to wash up. :) )

Humm, forecast says mostly sunny and 68 tomorrow.
Thinking about riding at 615 tomorrow from the shop...

It is gorgeous out there.

Btw, the official rides, said one of the Ballson store's employees yesterday, should start April 17.

Dana confirmed 4/17. She's watching the timing for sunset; she said it's really confusing if they start the ride early, so unless an announcement is specifically made that it's starting at 6 PM, plan on 6:30.

I might personally head out early to beat daylight home...

Remember that tomorrow, Tuesday, May 1, is the first Tuesday of the month, and thus the first Beer & Barbecue Freshbikes Ballston ride of the season.

Note that tonight is the free beer & bbq ride. It was moved to today from last week (The bbq ride is normally the first Tuesday of the month). Weather looks spectacular!

They need to push this up to 5:30. It's getting dark earlier now, it's dangerous out there. I don't know why they do 6:30 anyway. Even 6:00 would be a good compromise.

They'll start pushing it forward soon. They may have an agreement with the police escort for the time right now.

Nice for those of us that work later...and from I understand this is the last one of the season. If it did continue, I could see them moving up the time though.

From the shop:

"I think we may have one or two more. we will probably leave the shop at 6pm, and will not have police escort. be sure to check Facebook for updates."

Was thinking of doing the ride tomorrow (wednesday) if anyone is interested (Adam)? Hoping to leave the 'park' by fresh bikes around 6pm and push myself a bit to get ready for hilly Knoxville. Probably 3 of those powhattan mini-loops...I see under 'workouts' the ride is listed for tonight, but I'm pretty sure they start in May.
