What:     Cruiser Tuesday dress up and ride
Where:    Starting at the newest BUB Hub location,
          Johnny's Sporting Goods, 901 W. Main Street, Carrboro
When:     7:00pm gathering, 7:30pm ride
Theme:    Funky Formal -- semi-formal, fully funky!

It's a social cycling mobile dancing costume party. Usually there's a theme, and quite often a Pabst tasting or a final stop at the Resevoir. It's NOT a "critical mass" type ride; we obey all street lights and traffic rules and do not block motorists. All bikes and skill levels are welcome.

Matthew has a Cruiser Tuesday blog with photos and details: http://www.cruisertuesday.blogspot.com/
