HaagenDas, you really would do well as a television talk show host. Even if the only guests were yourself.

That's why I'm trying to convince BlackBerry to come over to Kenya. It could be a great show. You won't see much of BB, he'll be mostly carrying my bags, clubs. He could also prove usefull in flagging down other cyclists when Whoodie goes for another spin down Mount Kilaminjaro.

They may well make an epic doco out of it.

BB, I accept your challenge, Infact I was holding back, I could have easily hit 450RPM were it not for that Yellow School Bus obstructing my passage.

We will sip coffee/tea together at the top of Mt Kilimanjaro but won't it be nice too if I tried a trip down Mt Kenya.

Truer words were never tapped out on a message board. And, no, HD, I'm not carrying your bloody golf bags.

Uhhh... let's see. If I build up my fixie with a 29/19, head over to a steep hill, take my feet off the pedals and let 'er rip down the hill, I only need to hit about 46mph to beat that

Good luck. To make it more fun, meet BlackBerry and HaagenDas (I believe they are headed to Mt Kilimanjaro) at the airport if you want to be in the mix. And if guys are coming make sure you use the same flight. The trip to the airport is a dangerous one so I do it once.

The more the merrier. Don't let HD talk you into carrying his golf clubs or inflating his girlfriend.

Did I say you were carrying my golf balls? Perhaps you misunderstand The more I read this, the more I think Whoodie is trying to lure us into a trap.

BB, that pun about the inflatable girlfriend is a bit below the belt. So not everyone takes a blow sheep with them everywhere they go. Does that mean it's open slather on making fun of it?? huh??

Whoodie do I take it that you mean the landing is dangerous? I bet those stupid bastard civil engineers over there built the damned runway running up and down the mountain instead of across it.

Fair suck of the sav, I reckon I'm getting the rough end of the pineapple on this deal so far. I want to see a photo of the speed boat and sheilas before I pack one sock for this trip.

The runway is good, just a few pot holes here and there, but thats not a prob, the holes infact act as external brakes. The runway is short you know. Anyway the big worry is the trip to and from the airport, you have to go through four game reserves, Nairobi, Amboseli, Serengeti and Mara. Of there are Man Eaters (beat you to that ), hostile tribes and many other worries.

It's by grace I survive in this hole.

Man eaters eh?? well, we understand you'll fix us up with those at the doss houses as well then. You didn't mention beer and biltong so far. The hostile tribes might be a bit of a worry but I'm sure you'll get us through with your local knowledge.

Yes, I will do everything to win. Even if I have to deliver you to the man eaters or the chief of this tribe myself (oops, i didn't mean to disclose this).

What does doss house and biltong mean? I'm an American, so I don't understand the English language very well.

Results from Mt. Kilimanjaro

It is now official that Whoodie is the forum's high pedaling champ.
After beating BlackBerry in the race of Cadence by forfeit. BB has only his Trainer (HaagenDas) to blame for the loss, after he advertently ill adviced him against showing up.

I turned up. It's just that those cold tiles felt so good on my forehead, I just wanted to enjoy them a little longer.

Of course you did. What about the worthy opponent? Do you know the hell you guys made me go through to and from the "airport"? I lost my laptop and the water bottle to the monkeys in the jungle (trying to find a short cut), I too rusty, can't swing on branches like I used to. Anyway I forgive you.

I guess I should have known not to trust a trainer named after a frozen dessert.

No doubt you're right. I can't fire him yet. He still owes me money.

Will you guys be doing your interview stint ontop Mt. Kilaminjaro wearing pith helmets and smoking ivory pipes and the like?

I kind of fancy that as being more like Commander McBragg on the old cartoons. You'll need to interject a few phrases such as "bully bully" and "balderdash" and "the natives were restless" and all of that big game hunter type lingo. Look forward to watching.

Check out OLN next Sunday. The show is called: "Idiots on Wheels: The Charge of the Not-So-Bright Brigade." We were hoping to get the real Haagen Das to sponsor, but their ad man said, "I wouldn't touch any of you with a long stick."
