    Got to be in a parade

    Huntsville has a Christmas parade every year. This year I got to take part as part of Alabike and the Spring City Cycling Club. I don't think there was a normal road bike there. My friends were riding banana bikes and choppers and bmx bikes, I was riding a fixie, others were riding recumbents. There were maybe three normal road bikes. I'll post pictures when I get them.

    When I was still in high school I was out riding one day and ran across a parade setting up. One of the floats had a friend of mine on it, their theme was 4 Seasons of Sports ... only ... hardly anyone showed up. They made me put my bike on the float and ride with them! It was pretty fun! I hadn't even remembered there was supposed to be a parade that day.

    Fixies aren't normal road bikes? I guess not.
    Well there was a thanksgiving day ride that went through my neighborhood.
    Good thing, because before that I didn't know that there was one, I joined up and there were about 400 people in total, some some interesting bikes.

    There are maybe 5 fixies in this whole city. That's not normal.

    Soon to be six; when my Bianchi San Jose comes in.

    Glad you enjoyed the parade, Falkon.
