Could there possibly be a better way to welcome 2010 than with a bike ride? We don’t think so, and apparently we’re not the only ones. So far, we’ve gotten word of three bike rides planned for New Year’s Day.
For you adventurous souls who aren’t deterred by a 9:00 am New Year’s Day start time, check out the Up! and ATOM ride. Ride host Kristin Bott says ATOM stands for Ankeny/Thurman/Over-the-Mountain. Kristin’s ride will start on the east side and then head up to the Thurman gate near Forest Park. From there, they’ll head north to the St. Johns Bridge (on the highway, not through the park) and eventually head Southeast. If interested, contact Kristin via this message posted to the Shift List.
