Ladies first. BFOC is kicking out the first group ride of the year for V.D./Chinese New Year, and the route and poster have been coordinated by two lovely ladies in the group. Everything could use a lady’s touch if you ask me. I like starting the year off  soft and gentle, sticking with those silly resolutions, and then rolling into a curmudgeon by holiday season. Cycles and Bicycles!

Prizes for the best dressed-include: Treats from Oak Cliff’s Dude, Where’s My Sweet Chocolate, and a one-of-a-kind Valentine-centric B.F.O.C. T-shirt.

Lets hook up at Main Street Garden Park at 2 p.m., cruise through downtown to Cedar Springs, down Turtle Creek Blvd., and over to Uptown where we’ll make a stop at The Ginger Man before heading back to our nice new park downtown.

Check back for more details, and route maps. We hope you can all make out, ahem, make it out for this romantic getaway.
