Friday fun rides

by Ruth Kaser for Cycling Articles

The forecast for this coming Friday is sunny and mid 80 degree temperatures, with the sun set late still at almost 9 pm. Both add up to a formula for great evening bike riding. Some ride options include riding into Downtown via the Magic Mile route, then checking out the Friday Lake Anna Concert at 7. This weeks band is Desert Highway a tribute to the Eagles.

Another option is the Akron Bike Party Rockets Red Glare Ride:a festive evening social ride through the City of Akron. There is a ride every 3rd Friday of the month 10-12 miles in length. Bring Lights, Bring Music. Ride starts @ Lock 3 @ 7pm. Make your bike sparkle and wear your red, white and blue.  

If you plan on being out after dusk you will want to make sure you have a headlight and tail light. We have a great selection of lights at various price points.
