Some call it the Monday night ride. Others call it Cincy Mayhem. And some people would just call it stupid. Either way, we’re rolling every Monday at 10pm from Garfield park downtown.
The idea: ride bikes really effing fast, then drink a bit (or alot, whatever your fancy). For the last 18 months, we have been doing this ride, and surprisingly, the event draws pretty decent crowds considering the timing of it. All types of bikes show up – road, cross, fixed, hybrid and even the occasional mountain bike. It doesn’t matter what you’re riding because the rider is responsible for his or herself. If you can’t keep up, you can head to the bar.
The ride this week was great. We had temperatures in the upper 50’s, a pretty strong group of riders, and a few good hills on our side. Everything seemed in its place as we climbed, Glenway, Sheed/West Fork, Ludlow and some other hill I can’t remember the name of. The weather even made the West Side drivers a little more friendly. Did anything even get thrown at us?
I’m looking forward to more nice nights like this.
