GROUP RIDE: ON THE TRAIL OF LEE HARVEY OSWALD

AJ Vagabonds and BFOC are bringing back the history group bike ride: On the Trail of Lee Harvey Oswald. Join us on Sunday, November 21st at 1PM starting at the Grassy Knoll / Dealey Plaza in Downtown Dallas, and passing the infamous residences of JFK’s alleged assassin. This was the group ride that launched BFOC in 2008, and is one of our favorites. Our ride will take us over the 1912 Houston Street Viaduct, crossing into North Oak Cliff, and stopping at pivotal spots from that fateful day in 1963.
