A very quick post about an upcoming Lubbock bike ride

All of this info came from a Craigslist post yesterday. It seems a very worthy cause.

The route is approximately 11 miles and riders must be able to ride at least 12mph. There will be a police escort to block intersections and maintain a steady pace.
