The Twilight Mardi Gras Ride kicks off the week’s riding events. This route has something for everyone – beautiful residences along Harrison and Warm Springs, the Greenbelt, Julia Davis Park, and a great ride up Capital Blvd. on our way back to Hyde Park. This leisurely ride is designed for all ages, abilities, and types of bicycles. Be sure to bring your helmet and wear your Mardi Gras best and lots of lights. The Mardi Gras Ride is a great way to get warmed up for the rest of the week’s riding events, meet other cyclists in the community, and enjoy a great evening out on your bicycle. Make sure and get there a little early to check out all of the great gear that Jim Powers has to offer to the cycling community at Hyde Park Cycle Sports. This will be a great opportunity to check out the latest in lighting technology and see how other commuters stay visible at night.
