For December our ride theme will be “Tacky Christmas Sweater Party and Santa Swap”
So get down to the local thrift store and find yourself the most hideous bedazzled Cosby nightmare of a cardigan you can. And while you’re at it, pick up a $5-$10 gift to put in Santa’s sack. At the end of the ride, everybody who put one in gets a different one out!
Michele also has some fun stocking stuffers to give out to those who participate by wearing a tacky sweater, decking their bicycle, and group participation. (Hint: think craft stores)
We will be meeting at 5:30, don’t delay, we want you there early enough to gather gifts and get some pictures. Our route is: Dunedin House of Beer to Original Pinehurst Pub to Flanagan’s Irish Pub and back around to Jolli Mon’s Grill.
The route ends about a block from where we began, so it will be easy to get back to a car if you drove in.
With the exception of Dunedin House of Beer, the other stops all offer food. Do take advantage of this chance to try what our local places have to offer, a lot of it is really good! We do ask that if you are going to eat, you make your food order when we first arrive, so that you are not just getting your order when it’s time to leave. Try checking out their menus online ahead of time, just click one of the links above or to the right.
This is a casual ride, and we are not by any means setting a fast pace. But, if you are unaccustomed to riding, even this puts more strain on your body than it is used to. You need to remember to drink water, we ask all of the stops to make it readily available. Have some when you first get there, while you wait for your order of something other than water to arrive ;)
This is also not a drinking contest, or quest to see how many it takes before you cant ride anymore. Your safety is our first concern. Please keep in mind we have multiple stops, maybe you can wait until the next one to have another. Be responsible, just like on any other night out. Ride responsibly, or call a cab if you must (Checker Cab 727-444-4445).
