Those who check this guide often will notice that I’ve been fascinated with how rides with common topics often happen in the same weekend. That’s the case this weekend with the WTFNB Unity Ride, the WeBike Ride and the Queers and Beers ride, happening on successive days. For folks who identify with the Rainbow Flag and want a safer space to bike out into, get these rides on your calendar!
