Since last week's "Where Was VY? Tribute Ride" was blown out, this Sunday's ride will somewhat mimic the one planned for last week.
When: Sunday, September 28, High Noon.
Where: Meet at the fighter jet in Centennial Park.
Route: Westside Tour de Nash route minus PW Park.
Pace: Moderate, plan to stay in a loose group.
Terrain: Gently Rolling.
Distance: @ 20 miles.
Difficulty Level: Tom Collins , easy mix of flats/gentle hills.
Planned Stops: Granny White Market and Mafiaoza's in time to see the 2nd half of the Titans' game.
It was reported that Vince had gone missing earlier this week. After half the MNPD and SWAT team were dispatched to find his whereabouts, it turned out he and a buddy had gone to Nuttin but Wings for a couple of dozen hot ones (and a few cold ones!) and to watch Monday Night Football.
In tribute to the drama caused by this wing related incident, here are the parameters for this Sunday's Ride, Sept. 14.
1. The ride will begin at high noon (12:00) beneath the wings of the fighter jet in Centennial Park. Check this out if you have The Time.
2. Route: Sylvan Park, Richland, BMeade, Tyne, Radnor?, Granny White, blah, blah...eventually winding up at Mafiaoza's . Give or take, 20 miles. Rolling hills. Moderate pace. Plan to stay grouped.
3. The ride will officially terminate at Mafiaoza's, but stick around for hot wings*, pizza, 2-4-1s and the 2nd half of the Titan's game.
*Yes, Mafiaoza's has wings and they have TVs at the outdoor bar. Nuttin but Wings is closed on Sundays. If you can think of any other place with 2-4-1, hot wings, TVs and smoke-less, please let me know and we may modify the terminus.
