This Friday’s Halloween Ride and Edison’s Pub

This is a reminder that the Cleveland Critical Mass Halloween Ride will depart this Friday from Public Square at 6:30pm. The forecast calls for clear skies with temperatures in the mid-fifties. Please join us for what is sure to be a large turnout as we wrap up the CCM season!

We will ride until 8 or 8:30 before making our way to the October end point: Edison’s Pub in Tremont. Edison’s is featuring $2.50 GLBC Dortmunder drafts for all CCM riders. Also featured is the Edison’s pumpkin pie infused Charlie Brown shot at $4 (reg. $6). There is ample parking for bikes in front and on the side of the pub.

Costumes are encouraged but not required! Bike decorations are also encouraged; bike lights of all kinds, as well as radios, horns, bells, etc.!

If you haven’t already done so, please be sure to RSVP to this month’s event on Facebook.

There are many who meet before the ride from all corners of CLE to ride to Public Square as a group, so please consult the event wall to join or lead a group!

Help spread the word and bring your friends to make this a great conclusion to a very successful CCM season!!


Cleveland Critical Mass Halloween Ride

Cleveland Critical Mass Halloween Ride
Friday, October 29, 2010 – 6:30pm to 9:30pm
Meet at Public Square, Downtown

Cleveland Critical Mass hits the streets again Friday, October 29. We’ll meet at Public Square beginning at 6pm, rain or shine, then depart promptly at 6:30pm for what will likely be the last large mass until April.

This month, CCM is celebrating Halloween! Costumes are encouraged, but certainly not required. Deck your ride with lights and Halloween decorations, if you’d like. Let’s make this one of the best rides Cleveland has ever seen and put on one hell of a bicycle parade! Bring your friends, too!

Look for details of where the ride will conclude for food and drink in the coming weeks. However, if you have a great idea in mind or have a connection to an establishment downtown or on the Near West Side that can host and offer specials, please share below.

And while October spells the probable end of the prime CCM riding season, the plan is to continue to book CCM events through the winter. So rides will continue to be posted for those of you willing to brave the cold and snow. Even if winter riding isn’t your thing, everyone is encouraged to come out to the ending destination to catch up and have a drink with CCM people they’ve met throughout the year and meet new like-minded individuals!

Lastly, all participants are requested to review and become familiar with the CCM guiding principles on the about page of the CCM website.  Give respect and be courteous to pedestrians and motorists, keep the mass together for solidarity (meaning the bicyclists leading the group should ride around 12 mph pace!), and celebrate bicycles and Cleveland!
