Hello everyone!

After last Sunday night and Monday snow madness, we’re expecting friendlier weather conditions this weekend. On Saturday we’re mostly having some rain along the day. For the rest of the weekend, it appears that clouds and some wind will be the main characters, with also some chilly temperatures.

As per the coming events, the list will be short and easy, so we’re also including Monday’s CCC’s Salvage Sale, which started on 4/11 and will be a weekly recurrent event. For more info about these and more events, remember to check out our calendar.

Bike Loud S/SE Chapter Ride & Meeting – 12:15 pm at The Hampton Opera House (SE)
This month’s Bike Loud S/SE chapter ride will be themed on the new Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) on Division St. as they’ll explore its newcoming safety assets. The journey’s icing on the cake will be at Taqueria Taco Ramos on 122nd ave. More info here.

Unity Ride – 3:00 pm at Peninsula Park (N)
This will be a faster paced ride but will still have a “no drop” policy (which means leaders will wait and regroup for all riders). End spot is Fields Park on the west side of the river after a 15-mile ride. “Our intention for our group ride is to create a safe and fun riding experience for women, trans folks, and non-binary folks.” More info here.
