Sunday Destination / Breakfast Ride – January 25, Dallas, Texas

Did you know many cultures consider breakfast to be one of the three most important meals of the day?


This time of year makes planning a ride a bit tricky but the weather looks fairly good for Sunday, January 25. Please come join us for the next Sunday Destination / Breakfast Ride and celebrate this important meal with your fellow PBA members. We will ride south through downtown Dallas to Oak Cliff - a Tour of Dallas.

Our tour will start at Valley View Park at 635 and Hillcrest. The route will head south past Northpark Mall then to White Rock Lake, Lakewood/ Swiss Avenue, Deep Ellum, Downtown, then to Bishop Arts/ Davis Street. After breakfast at Norma's Café on Davis we'll tour the hills and homes of Kessler Park, a unique area of Dallas. The tour will then head back over the Trinity, run past Klyde Warren Park, Turtle Creek, Highland Park, SMU, then back home.

When: Sunday, January 25 – 8:00 am. Typically, one Sunday a month

Where: Valley View Park - Hillcrest at Valley View Lane (just north of 635/LBJ)

Distance: 42 miles, 1,300 ft

Speed:
13-15 average (we will try to speed up the pace a bit from earlier rides)

Please arrive at least 15 minutes early. This is a PBA ride so we will need time to register, go over the safety briefing, and call the restaurant.

About the ride:
The Sunday Destination / Breakfast Ride combines a ride to local destinations or points of interest not on a typical PBA route, and a stop at a breakfast restaurant along the way. The rides are “no drop” and the plan is to keep the distances between 30 to 45 miles and the average speed between 13 and 15 miles per hour. For this ride the journey is as important as the destination and I hope we can enjoy a casual ride with a variety of locations, neighborhoods, restaurants, scenery, topography, and camaraderie. A sense of adventure is important as we will discover routes together. While I will research routes in advance, do expect a wrong turn or three. I look forward to your feedback after each ride to improve the routes. Depending on the destination, the starting location might be someplace other than the Coit and Spring Creek / PBA parking lot so please note the starting location for each ride.
