That's right folks.  The fantastic, the delicious Ted Drewes custard.

If you have only had it at Wash U in those frozen little cups of plain vanilla or chocolate, you are missing out.  Time to experience it for yourself.

We will be departing at 9:30 PM on Thursday from the bottom of the Brookings steps and heading South to the land of frozen custard and Chippewa.  It's an easy 6 mile ride there, and we'll take a bike friendly route (not on big roads).

Ted Drewes (and will bike) never disappoint, so don't miss out!  As always, helmets and bike lights are recommended.

See you then,

Local Yokel

Howdy bikers,

Tuesday is the day for some local food!

Will Bike for Food will be biking to Local Harvest Cafe (yum here) for Bike Night tomorrow.  Bike Night means 2 for 1 sandwiches, $2 Schafly, $3 domestic beers, if you ride in on your bicycle.

Local Harvest is fantastic and delicious, and features affordable sandwiches, smoothies and soups with ingredients from local farms and distributors.  One of my favorite places in the city.

It's only a short five mile ride there, through Tower Grove park.  If anyone wants to bring a disc, we could play some frisbee on the way back as well.

Meet at 6:15 pm in front of Brookings!  See you then!

This is short notice but I wanted to remind everyone that Full Moon Fiasco #64 is happening Saturday night.

I think the ride is at 11 PM so we will meet at my house (746 kingsland) starting at 9:30 PM. Bring booze, water bottles, mixers, and a helmet. We will leave my place around 10:30 so that we can be at turtle park on time. It's a slow ride so as long as you don't get a flat, you will be able to keep up no problem.

FBC is one of the coolest aspects of Saint Louis and you don't want to miss out!

Gooey Butter Cake

Hey everyone,

There is a bakery near Soulard that sells over 70 varieties gooey butter cake and is open until 10 pm. That means this Thursday we are going to bike there and try as many varieties as possible! Meet at 8:30 pm in front of Brookings if you want to go, and we will bike through the park, down chouteau and turn on Jefferson and then left on park to get to Park Avenue Coffee. I hope to see you all there. If you have any questions you can reach me at 515-988-2603

See you Thursday,

MOBOT picnic

So for those of you who don't know, the Missouri Botanical Gardens has a kick ass music festival going on all summer long.  It is jazz every Wednesday night, with free admission to the gardens, and you can bring food and drink in to enjoy.

This Thursday, we will be BRINGING food to MoBot, to picnic and hang out and share.  Try to aim for things that can fit in a backpack or crate, but the ride is a short 5-mile easy one over to the gardens.  And it waaay beats trying to find a parking spot.

We will be meeting at 6:45 pm at Brookings to head over to the festival!  Bring food and/or drink, blankets, and bug spray.  Oh, and don't forget lights for the way home.

If you can't bring food by then, a bunch of us can head over to Local Harvest Grocery and Mokabe's Cafe which are nearby, as well as a lovely slew of restaurants on Grand if you need to grab something.

Can't wait to see you soon!

Gumbo Shop

Hey all,

This Saturday we are going to get takeout from the Gumbo Shop, and then have a picnic at a park just a few blocks away. The Gumbo Shop is supposedly a good Cajun Restaurant, and I'm excited to try it out.

The route is simple. We will meet at Brookings again at 4:30 pm this Saturday, June 12, and then bike south on Skinker until it hits Manchester. Then we take a right on Manchester and follow it until we get to the Gumbo Shop, just after McKnight. The restaurant is small, so the plan is to order takeout, and go to Tilles Park which is just a few blocks north on McKnight.

Bring blankets, frisbees, and anything else you might want at a picnic, and I'll see you all Saturday.
