Cars with bike racks will also be available for people who want to join the ride from the mayor’s house. Participants can email O’Brien at email@example.com to get a ride or directions to the mayor’s house in the Merryall section of town.
Bass will lead the group from his house to Young’s Field at 8:15 a.m.
