Sat. May 15 - Pajama Party Night Ride - O&E Towpath

http://centurycycles.com/events/nigh...path-pg370.htm

Quote:
In celebration of Cleveland Bicycle Week, our regularly-scheduled Night Ride on the Towpath Trail will be transformed into Pajama Party Night Ride!

The free event festivities begin at 7:00pm with cycle-your-own-smoothies and glow-in-the-dark goodies in the parking lot of the Century Cycles store in Peninsula. Pajama-clad bicyclists will depart on the Night Ride from the parking lot at 8:00pm At the 12-mile bicycle ride's halfway point, there will be slumber party snacks (popcorn, cookies and Twizzlers), plus a few games of "Spin the Water Bottle for Cycling Truth or Dare." After the ride, bicyclists are welcome to gather in the Peninsula Winking Lizard party room to trade bicycling (and ghost) stories and watch horror movies.
I don't wear PJs, so I'll prolly just ride nekkid.

I'll let someone more knowledge-able than I answer that - I've only done a small chunk of it so far.

If you want some company for a small section, let me know when you'll be passing through 'Clinton' area, and I'll join you for a bit.

You can ride it on a road bike, no problem. Most of the path is very finely crushed lime stone, your bike will be dusty after your
ride. Just wash it off, I hear lime dust is corrosive.

Hey 'jwh', it looks like you're only some 35 miles north of me. And about the same for Chipcom and Mr Danw too. We ought to all go for a ride together sometime this summer?
