Location: Started at Freeride bike co-op and traversed 1.5-mile loop around downtown
Number of Riders: 31 (count 'em in the photo above!)
Duration: About 20 minutes
Weather: 56 degrees & pouring rain
Reception: The cold rain kept most of the creepy lechers & haters away, so only the most diehard loving fans turned out on covered porches, under awnings, and with umbrellas to cheer us all the way. MPD blocked some intersections during the latter half of the Ride (thanks!!). The closest thing to a 100% positive reception we've had in all five years. We'll be back--RAIN OR SHINE--next year too!
