Check this event out, the Tour de Pumpkin featuring ROOT BEER FLOATS! Seriously, that's the best idea I've heard since the bacon ride! Root Beer floats are the exact type of thing that at the end of your life you say, "I would have done everything the same...except I should have drunk more root beer floats." Seriously, root beer floats are awesome, but it's not something you actually think to sit down and make often enough. Well...this ride will help you catch up on your lifetime root beer float quota!
It's Saturday Sept. 28th. with 20, 10 and 4 mile options. The first event starts at 9:15 AM. For more details and to register click here.
Also, take note that this event takes place on the critical portion of the Gandy dancer that they threaten to open up to 4 wheelers every year. I don't have anything against 4 wheelers, but it's awesome to have the Gandy dancer be bicycle only. It would be great to have a massive number of people come out for this ride to show the local public that yes, the Gandy dancer trail gets a TON of use from the cycling crowd!
Here's a larger version of their flyer (click to enlarge) in case you need some more information, hope to see you out there!
