Put April 23rd on your calendar folks. BikeAllentown's first Friday night ride of the year will be the day after Earth Day. We are going to leave from in front of Hava Java on 19th Street and will take a novice level ride throughout Allentown. We will start with with a small loop of the West End area and head Downtown and then loop back around to The Ritz where you can feel free to grab some ice cream - or whatever your hunger desires - or head on home to start enjoying the weekend. We are actually going to follow roads that are part of the proposed Greenways Plan - with the entire loop being relatively flat. We will be demonstrating the proper way to ride in traffic and following proper group riding etiquette. Copies of the Pennsylvania Bicycle Driver's Manual will be available as our special bonus gift to you - that's right folks free! Earth Day ride and free literature - where else are you going to get that kinda action on a Friday night. We will post a map of the proposed route on http://www.bikeallentown.com/ soon. We hope to see you there.
On a separate but related note - the Allentown City Council on adopting (hopefully) the proposed Greenways Plan has been scheduled for their April 7th meeting. The meeting will be held in Council Chambers and starts at 7:30pm. Come out and show your support.
