Drinkin' while cycling can convince you to do supercool stuff like ride a road bike bmx-style. My collarbone still aches when the weather changes...

krispistoferson,

Are you coming home from the Stone Lion when you pull such shenanigans?

(I grew up in Dalton)

See what I get for not checking bikeforums at 2 am? I got home drunk at 11, and didn't see this until the morning. Dang it.

Still voted yes...

< That was my expression after reading this. Yes, Stone Lion and the Pickle Barrel. We probably know many of the same people, since I'm friends with all these Dalton punx.

Last time I did I got a lift to the hospital so I don't think I'm going to try it again for a looooong time. Stupid collarbone and rotator cuff.

The Dog & Pony in Renton, Wa often has me going home BUI. Best beer in town, right on my way home from work, how can I resist?

Makes the large hill right before my house interesting, especially if I spend to much time drooling over the hottest bartender in the world!

i ride everywhere, including bars and parties, and as a result i ride drunk. i usually wake up the next morning relieved that i'm still alive. i also agree that it's better than driving, only because you are prolly only going to hurt yourself and not someone else.

also riding home extremely drunk is how one of my friends lost two of his bikes.

biking home drunk has never been a real problem for me- yet. now skating home drunk, that's a different story. last time i did it i apparently left my brand new krooked ride somewhere on the streets of portland and just decided to walk home. anyone find it? anyone?

Yeah and if it weren't for my truck I would have made it home too. Nothing like waking up Sunday afternoon to find white paint on my bike, and a dent on the tailgate of my truck.

Rode most of Minneapolis Saturday Night ride on 12/4 in a very intoxicated state. Don't know why I was so hammered. All I drank that day was beer, Long Islands, Boones Farm, Jameson, more beer, Jim Beam, rum and a little white wine. Returned home at 5:30 am to a less than happy wife. Only fell 3 times. Was told I had a good time.
