Here is the route for the next ride! We’ll be taking a tour of Wright-Dunbar neighborhood then we will ride out to Welcome Stadium. Welcome Stadium is where Major Taylor hosts its Signature Ride. The ride will be held in July this year. Be sure to register. This is a family friendly event and will include a family route. Bring the kids and teach them about how to ride their bikes and get their helmets fitted!
We will be doing 2 rides this month first rides out at 5:30pm and second around 7pm. This ride is a bit longer than other rides so the second ride might get pushed back a few minutes based on when the first ride returns!
When? Where? What Time?
In 1990 the Wright Cycle Company was listed as a National Historic Landmark. The Wright brothers used this location to build their own brand of bicycle. The money made by the Wright brothers at this shop would be used to help them experiment with human flight. At our June 7th CMD ride we will be stopping by this Complex.
Stop by the Bike Miami Valley booth this Saturday May 25th from the hours of 9am to 3pm to pick up your Courteous Mass Dayton shirt. It’s your last chance to ride to the market to enter in the $50 Market Bucks drawing. If you’re unable to come and still want a shirt you can pick one up at the next ride or inquire below!
June 7th we will be stopping by the Paul Laurence Dunbar House. Dunbar house is located in Wright/Dunbar neighborhood off of West 3rd Street, at the corner of Edison Street and Paul Laurence Dunbar Street in Dayton Ohio.
Dunbar was a local poet whose career started before he had even graduated high school. He was the son of ex-slaves and classmate to Orville Wright. Living only 33 years on this planet, Dunbar paved the way for so many people with his writing.
