Hmmmm....this could be a potential bomb...here'* what could happen
Scenario 1 - she likes you ...so when you start on this story, she gets upset because you like someone else. Then when you reveal it is her, she may feel like an idiot because she didn't see it coming.
Scenario 2 - she doesn't like you....so when you reveal to her the truth, she may feel trapped into saying "yes" when she really wants to say "no" because you've gone to great lengths.
People react totally different from what you think they will sometimes. Elaborate schemes like this can be misjudged and backfire.
I say keep it simple and casual. Don't put her on the spot like the above would. Go for the bike ride...during which I'm sure something funny will be said or done when you're both laughing. Just take that moment to say, "hey, you know what? I have a great time around you...wanna go out Friday?"
Just lay it on the line. no need to get nervous about it. No need to practice a speech. Just be YOU...unless that means you scratch your balls in public or something...just be the same friend you've been with a question about dinner. No biggy...no pressure...see where it goes.
