Uptown Bike By Night


  1. I want to do this but I'll be in class Friday night.

    I'm wondering, how many people usually show up for these bike rides? What kind of rides are they, what are the people like? Just curious.

    I moved here last summer and Uptown fascinates me.

  2. I really want to do this! Brian - last time, I saw a good dozen or so people participating. I need to get a bike...

  3. FYI, for those of you looking for a bike, I have one for sale, now that I purchased a new one. I got the new one at Village on Wells, my sales guy was Eric and a really good sales experience.

    There's a good mix of people that come out, some bikers, (i.e. fixies, and century riders) along with other people that just like riding a bike and meeting their neighbors. Last ride there about 20 people that came out. There was a nice police presence/escort as part of the agenda is to make our presence known to our non law abiding friends in the "hood". If your looking to meet local Uptowners, this is an easy way to do it.
    I bought a great bike from Uptown Bikes 2 years ago. I also have bikes from Village Cycle Center and Working Bikes. There's a guy on CL that sells refurbished bikes out of his garage by the name of Kevin. Depending on your budget and what your looking for, there are lot's of places to go. Send me an email if you need help tracking down the right bike for you.

  5. Not to be a Buzz kill ;),

    Uptown Bikes is also an option if you're in the market.

    I picked up a great bike for a really good price and the sales folks were awesome.

  6. I would really like to start doing this. How often do the bike rides occur?
