Singlespeed & Fixed Gear - Boston Ride Thursday (Today)
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
As promised, here's your official info post for today's ride up to the boonies. We'll be meeting at Porter Square (in Cambridge) at 4:30 p.m. like we did on Tuesday. This afternoon's route will take us up to Bedford and then out on a loop west to Concord, down toward Lincoln, passing the DeCordova Museum + Sculpture Park (http://www.decordova.org) and the Walter Gropius house (http://www.spnea.org/visit/homes/gropius.htm), back up past Hanscom Field, and returning into Bedford, before we come back down to Cambridge. Total distance: approximately 40 miles. Be advised, I'm going to try to take us on a trail marked as "hard packed dirt". I doubt it will be a problem for anyone's bike, and if it looks too crappy, we can always take a normal road instead, but nevertheless, you've been "warned".
I wish I could get out of work early and come up from Prov. to jump in with you guys. I get off @ 5 usually and would not make it until after 6 ... sucky. Maybe I can get out early next week make it.

Sounds like a nice route. Hope you guys have a good time. The tips of two fingers on each hand are still numb from Tuesday. And... I got alot going on today. Hopefully by next Tuesday Ill have made those changes to the bike and I will be able to join you guys.

What's the pace like? I might be able to play aong but I have some sort of sore throat thing, so I probably shouldn't push it.

Why did I just tell my boss I'd fill in for one of my sick coworkers today?
I won't be there today. Trevor, the pace last week was 15-17, pretty relaxed.
DIT - I'm seriously starting a collection fund for you to get some bar tape at the least. If everyone throws in like $2, we'll probably have enough to get you some Cinelli by next week.
jrowe - You suck. But that's alright, we'll see you soon.
MH - If ya read our Tuesday thread, we said we'd be out again today!
trevor - Man, you always have excuses. But like j said, it's an easy pace with an average speed of no more than 17 mph.

Don't worry about it. Ill get some tape. No need for you guys to throw down those hard earned dollars. I may actually have a pack in the parts box...now if I could just find the parts box.

No, no... I always waffle. I only sometimes have excuses!
I was out last Saturday. On the other hand, it's not like we saw you Sunday, hmmm...
