I went out to CP on Sunday and got dropped by a rollerblader after the 4th lap. The Saturday ride was great, but I need a day off.

No objections. Relative to the meatball picture, our mugs will look divine.

On my way to Brooklyn Sunday I managed to drop a guy on a Lightspeed; I was on my hybrid. Of course he looked like he had had a few too many of those meatballs. Either than or he'd just swallowed a watermelon. But it was a nice distraction from the soreness in my legs, until some kid with training wheels dropped me on the way home.

No such thing as too much chocolate... I think it was too much exercise!

You certainly wouldn't want to eat the meatballs we've seen on the ride. MMM (malignant mutant meatballs)!

I vote tim as having the best "confused" look.


This is probably the funniest one, it's what I imagine the meatball would look like if it were alive.


And where are my lips!


Look at that! That's just unholy, the top of the meatball has been out in the air so long it's formed a protective scab to keep the moisture in.

Who ya sayin' looks like a meatball?

Thanks for the photos, wheezl - though I don't think you fooled anyone by taking the photos on a slant. It really was a flat course. (Fortunately.)

Some fancy photography going on there.....I had to tilt my head looking at almost all the pics.

I can't believe I missed this ride....I wanted a taste of those meatballs! I think they're vintage meatballs....looks like they've been there for at least 3 months.

That's a better habit than the habit that I had when I was a kid. I thought it would be funny to take pictures upside down so I can make people laugh. When they saw me holding the camera upside down, they were on the floor....I thought to myself, once I develop these, it'll be so funny. It never occured to me that I can take the picture and rotate it 180 degrees. D'oh!

Tim... I can just see the meatball doing that as it ate the other meatballs..
In fact, that's what I think happened, it started out as about 50 smaller meatballs and only the strong survived.

BTW: Tim, let all the air out of ur back tire and put fresh air in. CO2 permeates through the rubber faster than air.

i'd actually like to ride where you are. i get tired of new york traffic a lot of the times. the route we took on saturday wasn't too bad, but it's not the same as cruising for miles on a country (or as close to country as possible) road.
