sunday Jan 1, 2018
Back in 1990 we started inviting friends to join us for a bike ride on January 1 so that we could get a healthy start on the new year. After the ride, which varied in length due to weather conditions, we always sat down for some black-eyed peas and cornbread.
We opened up the invitations to include the local cycling community in 2000 and began what has become a local cycling tradition, called the Merry Fitness/Happy New Rear Ride. We offered a vaariety of route distances and all our rides ended with black-eyed peas and cornbread.
Sorry if you missed it, because after 17 years we decided to retire the ride and reclaim the holiday. We'll still get together with friends to ride on January 1 and we'll eat some black-eyed peas and cornbread when we finish. I hope you ride somewhere!
