So. Tomorrow evening (Friday, June 29th) I'm going to ride around Hartford and nearby environs to peruse some choice graffiti. The not so organized ride will be dubbed - the Greater Hartford Graffiti Tour (GHGT). You are welcome to tag along (pun intended?). There is a Facebook invite, but I've heard some people out there still shun Facebook. Meet up at 5:30PM at the carousel in Bushnell Park. We'll roll around Hartford, then branch out. The Hartford bit will be short. Bring fattish tires and don't expect to ride fast. It's going to be warm out, so beverages are probably a good idea.
Also, the Real Ride approaches. Saturday, July 7th a raucous group of lighted revelers will roll about Hartford and converge on the riverfront to watch the Riverfest fireworks from an undisclosed prime location. Show up at Real Art Ways at 6PM to start the festivities and decorate your steed. The ride begins at 8PM and we'll catch the fireworks at 9PM. Real Art ways has concessions if you're hungry or thirsty.
Bring your own materials or use those that will be available to bling your bike. The more glowing, flashing, lighted-ness the better. This is the fifth one of these, and they keep getting better. If there be rain, the rain date will be July 8th - same as Riverfest.
Oh yeah. Both rides are FREE! So even if you have a horrible time, you didn't waste any of your hard earned dough. See you there, and spread the word.
