Welcome to the Hub Grub Bicycle Ride of Seminole Heights.
This is a fun and easy bike ride -- only 6 1/2 miles long but it will be packed with good restaurants, good businesses and good company.
This is not a race. In fact, just the opposite. Ride slowly and enjoy the views of Seminole Heights -- serene Lake Roberta, the big oaks of Central Avenue and the participating restaurants and businesses.
We will begin at Ella's restaurant -- a wonderful restaurant in Seminole Heights in a gorgeous building built to house the restaurant. Ella's is at 5119 N. Nebraaska Avenue.
2:30 PM is registration. Please sign a liability waver form and cost is $5 for the event.
3-7 PM is the ride.
And when we return to Ella's at 7 PM, there will be bicyle food specials, live music and a party atmosphere.
