Yeah, I was hoping to place better. I got eliminated in the second heat, but what did I expect? Some of the riders I was racing against were 20 years younger, one hundred pounds lighter and way less drunk than I. I think I'd had about five or six beers by that point!

This was the 2nd annual Freak Bike Militia's summer cruise at Confederation Park in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Folks from Hamilton, Oakville, Quebec, Michigan and various other places all over. I think this year we had about 60 bikes out for the ride.

EDIT; I dunno if I'm allowed to do this on bike forums but here is the website. Check out the forums. There are some more photos of the ride.

I had noticed that you had different age categories. That's quite a turnout, 60 bikes. Thanks for getting the links straightened out .

No video of the jousting?

I forgot my camera when I left the house that day. What I've posted I just borrowed from their forums. I'm sure there will be some video of the jousting, folks just haven't gotten around to posting it yet.
