2017 Summer Solstice Ride
June 20, 6 to 8 p.m.
“It’s the longest day of the year, so let’s celebrate the midway point of summer! Join Living Streets Alliance and Technicians For Sustainability on a casual, friendly bike ride along mostly car-free paths to Dragoon Brewing Co. where we will enjoy cold brews, a food truck or two, some prize giveaways (including a solar battery charger from TFS!) and more. Come thirsty, and drink up! Dragoon will donate one dollar for every pint sold to LSA, this night only!
We will depart from TFS, 612 N 7th Ave., at 6 pm, and return to the same location at about 8:30pm if there is a group wanting to ride together back to the same spot.”
Carolyn’s note: I know this is the summer solstice, but since excessive heat and a high temperature of 112 is predicted for tomorrow, please wear a hat, sunscreen, and bring lots of water with you on this ride.

2 dozen die-hards and a toddler showed up to ride this 3 mile one way route to Dragoon Brewery, along the Santa Cruz River. Spray guns, otter pops and lots of drinking water went with these brave folks, as I waved them off at 6:08 p.m. , in 110 degree temperatures. Happy Solstice in June 2017.
