    Holiday Light Ride - 12/22/04

    Jorge, Jen and I will be strolling around the WindCrest area on our bikes Wednesday, the 22nd.

    Apparently, there are some nice displays of holiday lights in that neck of the woods.

    We are doing some research and will come up with a start/stop point (resturant that also serves Hot Chocolate) and of course, the route.

    Will be posting more of those details in the next few days.

    what religions are invited? I don't want to come if this thing is open to every religion. It should be christians only. If you don't want to celebrate the birth of our savior you shouldn't be able to come. Without christ we would be stuck with 7 crummy candles in a candelabra. fuck that. cheap bastards.

    I know the ride will roll at 7PM.

    Other than that, we need to do some re-con.

    Oh... I also know that we'll drink Hot Cocoa afterwards.

    Z... while Chrismas is a Christian holiday, I think Americans were the ones who commercialized it (or was it Hallmark?) and thus, where the "lights" part came in. I know that the Jewish folks put up blue lights in addition to the Chanukah Menorah. Either that or the people who live at the blue light houses are big time Elvis fans.

    So with the lights being an "American" thing and all, we should open it up to Americans... and those that live in America, or perhaps those that are visiting America on Wednesday. And when I say "America", I mean the USA as the word "America" seems to mean different things to those that live in the other Americas, i.e. we are not the only "American's", but we are United States Americans.

    ok....maybe in the true christian spirit I can compromise a bit.....
    Any real Americans, and those visiting on Wed. are cool, but dirtbags like aLaN can't come. They have enuf snow in canada for us in SA, but they don't share.

    Are those who plan on going lighting their bikes too?

    There is a Jim's at O'Connor and IH35. Maybe we can park there, ride down O'Connor a little bit to Randolf BLVD to Crestway. Or is that too out of the way? I'm not too sure about what's South of the 35/410 area. There is a VIA park and ride nearby also.

    There are places to park around Office Max or Office Depot at Walzem and 35. There's also a Jims at Walzem and 35. This is all close to Windcrest.

    4- contest for the best lighted rolling bike + rider

    5- i am no longer calling myself a mexican, i am not from Mexico. i am not to be called a chicano, because i dont know where the hell that place is. do not call me hispanic, because that groups me with undesirables. SO i made up my own word for you people to call me,

    from now on, call me.........

    I will be up for the Windcrest ride. There is also a Taco Cabana on Walzem Road. I don't know if they have hot chocolate, but they serve beer, and it is possible to watch the bikes from the patio. There are also some Asian restaurants in that area of town. The Windsor Park Mall nearby has a reputation for high crime such as theft and drive-by shootings. There is not much there any more.

    Since we usually ride to Beethoven's from Bike World, I would think we could expand the restaurant search to a wider area including Austin Highway and Rittiman Road. I will probably ride to Windcrest from home which is near Bike World.
    Raise your skill level to the level of the trail, donít bring the level of the trail down to your riding level.

    Don't mind me, I'm just along for the ride.

    I probably won't go if weather is bad. But what do y'all think about parking at Windcrest Elementary in Windcrest? There will be lots of slow traffic and visibilty of our vehicles while we're riding. Then we could drive to a place to drink hot cocoa.

    Good plan Ernest. What is the name of the streets/intersection of that Elementary?

    I'll do re-con tonight. As well, Sandy is hunting down a map of a route another cycling group did in this area last week.

    Windcrest Elementary is at 465 Faircrest @ the intersection of Faircrest and Midcrown

    To get there from 410 @ 35,
    Take Randolf to Crestway,
    Crestway into Windcrest,
    turn right on Midcrown to Faircrest

    From 35,
    Take Walzem (East),
    turn onto Midcrown (North - away from Windsor) to Faircrest

    Exclamation

    Thanks Ernest, meeting at the Elementary school is a great idea as it's centrally located.

    Weather permitting, let's meet there at 7PM. From there, we'll set a course to hit the major 'winning' entries in the 2004 Light Up contest. For a map of the area, check out the official map (.pdf).

    After the ride, we will reassemble at the school and hit either Jim's or IHOP there at Ih 35 and Walzem.

    My cell phone is 210-three-too-fife oh too six fife if anyone wants to join us or needs an update if the ride is a go. Dress warmly! It is projected to be 30 degrees at ride time with a windchill "feels like" of 16!!!!
