"The Republicans are coming! The Republicans are coming!"

When: Tuesday, August 24th, 7:00pm
Whe Southeast corner of Central Park

"One if by corporate jet, two if by S.U.V."

TIME'S UP! joins Greene Dragon to scout out the first Republican
threat on New York City, a historic ride on "horse-cycles" down
Lexington Avenue to warn New Yorkers: "The Republicans are
coming!"

The ride will stop for a call to "Liberty" at Madison Square
Garden, to elnist patritos into the revel cause, before heading
on to the Counter-RNC Kickoff Party at Webster Hall. Ride starts
at Sherman Statue, SE corner of Central Park. Come in red,
white, and blue. Bring your bike.

Part of the TIME'S UP! Bike National Convention:

Which will Kerry show up in, the Gulfstream V or the Suburban?

I would hope he would show up on his Serrotta bicycle, but apparently
he had other things to do, since we didn't see him. Around 250 cyclists,
many with "horsycles", did show up, along with a few skaters and folks in
pedicabs. It was a lot of fun!
