A Heads-up on Two Upcoming Emerald City Events

Two opportunities for the lumpencitizens to hobnob with Boss Godfrey

Not much news this Saturday morning, so we thought it would be an ideal time to provide a heads-up about a couple of upcoming Emerald City events. We received this from one of our gentle readers via email earlier in the week:
Register now for Xterra's Cruise for A Cause, a 5-mile Family Bike Ride starting at 6:30pm on Friday, August 15.
The ride, part of the Xterra Mountain Championship Series in Ogden, starts at Xterra Village (Grant and 25th Street in Ogden) and winds down the Ogden River Parkway to the 21st Street Pond and back. The cost is $25 for individual riders and $50 for a family. ALL PROCEEDS TO BENEFIT WEBER PATHWAYS! Bring your family and friends and ride with Mayor Godfrey in this non-competitive, all-inclusive ride.
Register online at or register in person at Xterra Village the day of the event from noon to 6pm. All riders receive a free Xterra t-shirt and refreshments!
Taking a bicycle ride with Boss Godfrey is worth the price of admission all by itself, it seems to us. But if you decide to ride with Mayor Godfrey... we urge you to be careful. Whatever you do... DON'T TOUCH HIS BICYCLE! It drives him totally nuts.

And the Standard-Examiner reports another opportunity to get a little face time with Boss Godfrey this coming Monday evening:

Police (and Godfrey) set to meet the people

Godfrey will be a featured speaker... along with his sidekick, Chief Greiner.

Never let it be said that Weber County Forum falls down in its constant effort to keep the lumpencitizens fully informed of any and all opportunities to hobnob with the Boss of us all.

Don't let the cat get your tongues.

Both events seem like good ideas to me.

Raising money for Weber Pathways is a good idea, doing it by getting people riding bikes together is a good idea, having the Mayor along supporting Weber Pathways and getting out among the common folk is a good idea. Good for Godfrey on this.

What's not to like?

On the second item: improving police/community relations is a good idea. The National Night Out Against Crime is a good idea. Having the OPD take part, mixing with the common folk, being accessible when the sirens aren't wailing and people in crisis, is a good idea. Having the Mayor and Chief Greiner there is also a good idea, provided they're planning more than just a speech each [which I'm afraid is what they have planned according to the SE story]. If they intend to stick around, work the crowd, press a little flesh, answer a question or two or ten or thirty one on one... well, that'll be a good idea too.

Again, what's not to like?
