“Bike love” is in the air, according to Rich City RIDES.

The nonprofit bicycle advocacy organization in Richmond is hosting a Valentine’s Day group bike ride at the Richmond BART station. Folks are asked to meet at 7:30 p.m., organizers said, as the bike ride is scheduled to set off at 8 p.m.

“Trust us you will LOVE this route,” the group wrote in its website invite. “It’s going to be cooooold so bring lots of layers and maybe someone to snuggle with. We are going to party rain or shine so depending on how the weather shapes up you may want to be ready for some less than ideal conditions.”

While fun, such rides help Rich City RIDES promote safe, law-abiding cycling as a more environmentally friendly and healthy mode of transportation.

The group asks participating cyclists to follow these rules, not just on Valentine’s Day but always:

– Stay Right
– Stop At Lights
– Ride Straight
– Don’t Hate
– Pack Your Trash
