Thursday Night Social Ride Over & Under The Sea Theme Ride says
Ok, Thursday is coming about, just like every other week, but you'll soon sea that this is ashore way to have a blast!! We'll ship out from Festival Beach as usual, navigate the channels, tack and jibe our way around town, then heave to at a park stop for a dip in the drink. For those of you without the lay of the land, that means swimming, so wear a bathing suit, if you're not already dressing like a mermaid, pirate, sailor, etc. This isn't our maiden voyage, so for those old salts who remember a very special ride around 4 years ago, you're in for a treat. Riders on an even keel will be invited to participate, that means stay off the grog if you know what I'm talking about. New riders won't be marooned, but as always, give a wide berth to your mates, lest you get caught in the doldrums. Our final port of call this week is Rowdys Saloon where we'll shake a leg and tell tales of those lost at sea.

We meet at Festival Beach (http://goo.gl/maps/6IYXy)
Get there around 7:00 for some social time. We take off around 8pm, ride around for a while and stop off at a different park each week, and then we bike around some more and end the ride at our generous host bar.

What you should bring: Lights, Locks, ID, and Cash

Social Cycling Austin rides AS traffic and NOT AGAINST it. We stop at red lights, yield the right of way and let cars pass as best we can. We don't block intersections. We are nice to both our fellow riders and the other traffic on the road. LISTEN TO the volunteers helping to lead the ride. They are some nice folks and have you best interest in mind. If you have any questions about the rules, I suggest you check here:http://bicycleaustin.info/laws/austin.html

REMINDER: The goal has always been to create a safe environment for all riders, but we cannot control, nor do we desire to, every rider's behavior. We promote personal responsibility, and it is each rider's responsibility to take care of themselves, and if they choose to ride with us, then they accept those risks inherent in riding a bicycle with a large group of other people riding bicycles.
