College Park, MD / Ride of the Living Dead II

Sunday October 29, 9:30am
Return of the Ride of the Living Dead!!! Last year we did a 16 mile Halloween bike tour along the Bike paths of the area. This year we are going to step it up. +/- 30 mile ride (for more serious riders) AND a 16 miler.

this year there will be 2 routes:

a 16 mile route (basically last year's route). Jill will be leading this ride, it's a fun casual ride on bike paths. it's a great introduction to the network of bicycle paths in the area.

+/- 30 mile route. this is a mainly flat to rolling course. Tiny and Jim will be leading this ride. We're going to try and stay in a group, but everyone will have a cue sheet in case you want to go at a different pace. Here is the route

Meet at the bike shop betwen 9-9:30 and try to get on the road at 9:30, (but we will probably wait for some stragglers)

if you're cool, you'll wear a costume. last year people said they would and didn't. When we get back, there will be beverages of various types and some snacks. Bringing food/beverages to share is encouraged. There will also be music by a very cool band. They are much quieter than the bands that played last year (in case it was too loud for you). They are called Wax and Wane and they are from baltimore. A 2 piece band with male/female vocals, acoustic guitar, keyboard and violin!!!!! Oh yeah, there will be a pumpkin carving contest on the bike ramps outside the shop. Bring your own pumpkin/knife. Did someone say prizes???

Like most people I live a hectic life and who has the time for much exercise? Thanks to xtracycle now I do. By using my bike for daily activities I can get things done and get an hour plus work out in 15 minutes extra of my time, not a bad deal and beats taking the extra time going to the gym. In case you are still having trouble being motivated; the National Center of Disease Control says that inactivity is the #2 killer in the United States just behind smoking. ( ) Get out there and start living life! I can carry home a full shopping cart of groceries, car pool two kids or just get lost in the great outdoors camping for a week. Well I got go, another outing this weekend.
