Cycling in Wichita Readers' Ride #2

(Assuming, of course, I still have readers . . . )

I'm still here, and I hope y'all are as well. Let's try another Readers' Ride--two, in fact--and ride the Arkansas River bike path. My hope with scheduling two rides is to accommodate more folks who might be interested.

On Saturday, October 4, at 9:00 a.m., let's meet at the trail's southern terminus at Garvey Park (the corner of Washington and Galena); we'll ride to the trail's northern terminus at 21st Street Park.

On Sunday, October 5 at 1:00 p.m., we'll meet at 21st Street Park and ride south.

These will be easy rides in terms of their pace; the idea is to meet other like-minded folks and their families and Significant Others. Cycling in Wichita can be a lonely business at times (the activity, I mean--not this blog); it's good for all of us to be reminded that we are not so alone as we sometimes feel while we're riding.

I look forward to seeing you this Saturday and/or Sunday.

John, I'm sorry that I haven't stopped by for a while. I wish I could say I or my family could do this, but the timing doesn't work out: on Saturday we have some weekly obligations that use up our mornings (and then in the afternoon/evening I'm committed to a daddy-daughter date), and on Sunday we're usually occupied with church, especially at that time. Darn. We really need to try to work a joint bike ride out, before the weather turns towards winter. Perhaps during the fall break coming up?

Yes... you still have readers.

And I've ID'd another AWB :-)

Looks like I won't be able to make this month. I'll be back in New York for the weekend. Hopefully it'll be a good ride, though!

I will definitely be there Sunday! I would show up Saturday too but alas my work hours dictate I am up to late to do morning activities :)

I am looking forward to it!

John, BTW when you say 21st Street Park, do you mean sedgwick county park?

Chris,
Thanks for the question. 21st Street Park is located in a triangle of land formed by the river, 21st Street, and I-235. Sedgwick County park is farther to the west.

I am afraid I will not be able to make it this month John. I was hoping you would schedule it on a Saturday because I had too skip church to ride at last months from grove park.buuvohay But then, I just found out today that I do have to work tomorrow until noon.

Bryan,
I'm sorry you had to miss. But not to worry--we'll have more Saturday rides.
