Bikes and Baseball with the Coalition and Somerset Patriots

This comes from our friends at the New Jersey Bike and Walk Coalition:

America's National Pastime - Bicycling

Bicycling to a baseball game, anyway. NJBWC is organizing a ride to see the Somerset Patriots of the Atlantic League play on Cycling Night, September 14. The Patriots play at TD Bank Ballpark in Bridgewater, NJ.

The cost of a ticket will be $10 ($7 ticket and a $3 donation to NJBWC). While you could just bring your bike to the stadium with your car, we will be arranging a five-mile ride to and from the stadium on the evening -- what's the point of bringing your bike if you don't use it. Lights and helmet a must. Lights for the ride, and the helmet for the ride and any stray, flying beer bottles from the stands. Oh, it's baseball, not a Jets-Eagle game...

We need to guarantee 30 riders for the evening to participate in the "benefits" (promotion of the Coalition on the scoreboard, PA announcement, etc.) and we need to know fairly quickly. If you are interested, let us know.

Oh, one other benefit is taking part in a bicycle "parade" on the warning track prior to the game. Gee, I don't know... My road bike with skinny tires on sand... Maybe I'll pass, have a beer, and watch those with fat tires!
