3:50PM-4:00PM Remarks  

4:00PM The ride is a safe 2.1 mile ride mostly on closed to cars Memorial Drive and Paul Dudley White Path to Artesani Playground.   There are no auto crossings, but we do need to ride on the bike lane of Anderson Memorial Bridge.   We will be adding cones to add visuals and our mass of riders will be a signal to cars to stay carefully in their lane.    It will be necessary to ride single file for much of the ride.

Please ride slow, yield to pedestrians, stay to the right, give space to other riders, pass on the left.    Parents please coach your kids in these rules.    

4:30PM to whenever play at Artesani Park on the fun play structures and with our own play equipment and we will set out tables for the cookie potluck.    There will be a portable restroom.

*Families are encouraged but not required to bring cookies to share.   Indicate on the registration form what you are bringing.    For those bringing cookies not store packaged, please indicate the allergen status of the cookie with respect to dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, eggs, soy, gluten but those with serious allergies nevertheless should use their judgement and consider sticking to packaged options.   We will make sure there are Passover certified options.   

There is no group ride back, families depart on their own.
