The much anticipated first ride of the season and Tutu Day is almost here! Let the fun begin!
Don’t have a tutu? No problem! Susan Clasen-Tiede or Kathryn Boyd Langrehr are both expert tutu makers and will whip one up for you. Just reach out to either one of them if you haven’t already. Don’t want to wear a tutu? No problem! This is a “only if you wanna” activity.
You might have noticed from the restaurant location that we are pointing our noses to Council Grove instead of Altoona. Those darn small town restaurants have a tendency to not be open on Sundays and such was the case for our dining location in Altoona. We’ll save that for another time.
We have another special surprise planned for this ride (as if being in tutus wasn’t special enough!) Prior to leaving for the ride, we’re going to make a quick detour to the Douglas Avenue Assembly of God Church to have our bikes and riding season blessed by Pastor Clayton Barth, who is my son. There’s no better way to begin our season than to ask God to watch over us and keep us safe, so we will make this blessing an every April event.
Here are the details:
Meeting location: the QuikTrip at 13th and West St. – 3933 W. 13th St.
Meeting time: 9:15 am with kickstands up at 9:45 am SHARP. We MUST leave on time so we don’t interfere with church services that morning. We will ride the short distance to the church, which is in the Douglas and West St. area.
Lunch: Hays House in Council Grove. You can preview the menu at the link below.
Distance: 98 miles one way. If there are Sportsters in the group, we will make one gas stop along the way and coming home.
14 Day Forecast: partly sunny with a high of 70, winds at 10-20 mph.
What you need to bring: black shirts for the 15th anniversary logo and any other shirts that you want to have kittified with the standard Kitty logo at the July printing. Cash for the 50/50 drawing (6 tickets for $5.00.)
What I will bring: special order patches or items not already delivered. Any Kitty shirts from the March printing not already delivered. A supply of bandanas, kitty patches and pins.
Kathryn Langrehr will lead and Suz Tiede will sweep.
