What a great ride last week! So many of you were unfazed by the rain all day, that a strong, cohesive group left downtown when the rain stopped at precisely 7:46. Thanks for coming out, everybody; it was great riding with you. We’d like to make mention that this was a particularly cohesive ride, with the group sticking together really well, lots of costumes that integrated helmets, and of course everybody was very well illuminated. See for yourselves:

Here’s the playlist from the ride.

Continuing the sci-fi theme, next Moon’s ride is called May the Fourth be With You—and it’s actually on May 3rd. Making dates and wordplay work together is tough, so give us a little wiggle room, eh?

If you love the artwork from these two rides, click over to the CCC store to order up a fine T-shirt! These will only be made once, and orders close Friday. Choose to pick yours up at the next ‘Mash and save on delivery costs. The shirts feature the art, sans lettering and logos, on the front:

Shirts! Shirts! Shirts!

Do not contact Amy at Threadbare. Order through the CCC store!

To celebrate the launch of the CCC’s online store, and to commemorate the fantastic work of Eric Clausen, MM’s artist-in-indentured-servitude, we’re taking pre-orders for a limited run of shirts from local screenprinter, Threadbare. Available in organic cotton, the shirts will be printed on with a special ink that doesn’t have a waxy feel, in any color you like as long as it’s black. Order using the link above or bring  $20 cash or card to tomorrow’s ride. Delivery on or before the May 3 ride.

Ride Long and Prosper: April 3

Space; the final frontier…These are the voyages of the starship Moonlight Mash. It’s ongoing mission: to explore strange new worlds, seek out new life and civilizations, to boldly go where no ride has gone before!

Moonlight Mash is a social celebration of people on bicycles, under the light of the full moon. This moon’s theme is the first in a two-part sci-go series. Remember this is a night ride alert riding, a hip vibe, and headlights are required. Taillights, helmets, and boom boxes are all good ways to earn bonus points.

Remember, this is not critical mass, this is not the ’80s; its Eugene in the new millennium! We are not anti-car; we are pro-bike! Act as a proud and responsible ambassador. Stop at red and yellow lights; even stop at green lights if you think you’re going to leave others behind. If you’re the first through a 4-way stop, stop! Wave a car or two through and wait for more riders to gather behind you, and ride through the intersection together as a group. Smile. Do not ride on the sidewalk or cross the middle of a two-way road. Wave! On a one-way road, leave one lane open for motor traffic. Ring your bell. Slow down at the front. Honk your horn. Speed up at the back. Howl at the moon. Signal turns and stops. Shout “Moonlight Mash!” Don’t weave or cut off other riders. Smile.
