BABBLE Bike Ride

with 4 comments

I got an interesting email last week from a fellow biking blogger, Myles from Rattappress inviting me to join a bunch of north Texas bloggers called BABBLE (Bicycling Authors, Bloggers, Bold-face Liars, & Exaggerators) in a group ride around Fort Worth tomorrow. Living on the other side of the Metroplex, my first reaction was to pass on it  this time around. To be honest, this type of ride would require some serious effort to get my bike to Fort Worth. Not to mention, it would eat up most of my day.

However, the forecast shows that it’s going to be a beautiful day tomorrow and I’ve been wanting to try bike transport on the DART and the TRE. I’m going to sit down and do some planning tonight and hopefully figure out a way to make a family day out of this. Stay tuned.

EDIT (10/17/2009 – AM): Looks like I’m in. I’ve worked the schedule out and getting to Fort Worth by bike and train look doable. My wife’s even excited about it because she (and the munchkins) will meet up with me in Fort Worth after the ride.

UPDATE: Here’s my write-up about the Journey.

  1. He made it, his family made it, and it was a GREAT day. As I said, “except for the Ocean and the Beach, it was just like San Diego.” I think in a future get together, we’ll find a way to head in YOUR direction…

    • Awesome ride and it was great meeting everybody! A ride in Dallas would be tough since the bar was set so high in FW today.

      I’ll have to start thinking about a good route. Maybe some of the other east-siders have some fun routes.

  2. I’m really glad you made it. It was also nice to see your family join us all for lunch. We’ll do this again sometime soon.
