West Chester PA: Neighborhood ride

Hi all,

I am planning a ride around West Chester (PA) borough to be held on Saturday November 5th, with a rain date of November 12th.  This would be a ride and meet/greet only, no show or swap.  We had one about 8 years ago, with a good turnout.  West Chester borough is small, so we can cover just about the whole area in an hour or two.  Souvenir from the 2008 ride:
http://uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/11578/05sticker5755e1af0357fee1a2bb.jpg


The plan:  Meet at Timothy's sports bar/restaurant at 1:30pm for meet and greet, we ride promptly at 2:00 pm

Most of the ride will be on streets, with traffic conditions.  Best to keep this one for riders 21 and older only.  Some parts of the ride will be through parks/rough terrain, so please ride your bikes first to make sure it will hold together.  Old school bikes are awesome to look at and discuss, but any age bike is welcome.  We can ride until 4pm or so, and stop in town at one of the many bars for some refreshments.  We make our way back to Timothy's around 5-6:00 pm.  (maybe dinner there, as they welcome bikes)

This will be a slow-medium paced ride in a small town, so I don't think anyone will be at risk of increasing their cardio much.  We can stop for breaks as needed.  How does this sound to everyone?      Warning:  Typically large groups of females from WC University block up the sidewalks on a Saturday evening, so we may have to be careful not to run into them..... wink

Address for Timothy's:  Parkway Shopping Center, 929 S High St, West Chester, PA 19382  Parking is free. 

Since we will not be meeting until 1:30, we can communicate here that morning if the weather decides not to cooperate on the 5th. 

Hope folks can make it.

Re: West Chester PA: Neighborhood ride

Lots of riding today. We're grabbing a drink and some snacks at Ryan's pub on Gay street right now if any stragglers want to meet up. Come on down.
