Come to Juxtaposition Arts at Broadway and Emerson in North Minneapolis (checking which building it will start from) anytime after 5:30 for bike tune-ups and mingling, and the intro to the ride starts between 6:15 and 6:30.  It is up to you to bring your own bike and helmet, but the team carries pumps and other necessary supplies like a boom box.

Arrive back to JXTA by 8:30 for dinner.  Building will be open in case of rain and to allow access to restrooms.
