no i think the "chicago warm up ride" is just fine
it has a certain ring to it, and certainly conveys its purpose
I supose we'll discuss it tonight at polo.

and FYI...

Its on the Calender, but on the 23rd of November I will be hosting/organizing a ride.
More information to come but the basics are as folling:

ride "The Polls" pillage
[*edit]Monday 21st[/edit*] of November
Sherwood 14th and K
7 pm - 9 pm
!!! $5 entry fee - WinnAr takes all !!!
refreshments afterwards

say werd

ooh! now thats alot of talk coming from a guy we hardly ever see..
you know, its been a long time since your last ride
the pirates have been getting faster!
LBK will give you a run for your money - and thats a fact

but ladies and gents,,
I would like to tip my hat to Mr. Fusion
As one of the first (and friendliest) pirates,
I'm honored to hear him actually speak up for once and talk some smack like it ought to be talked.

way to go brother.

any chance you'll grace us with your presence this evening?

I unfortunately have to work. Since the early years of the pirates, I have taken a second [sigh] night job and thus I can't always join in your reindeer games.

I've noticed that something is going on this Sunday. I might be able to make that.

My recently overhauled drivetrain is smoooooth and I need any excuse to enjoy it.

Get me from Rockville to DC without the Metro with a bike, and I'm there. I could leave work as early as, say, 4:30.

maybe it's time for the pirate's bike lending system to be kicked into gear again.

To me that reads like:
Take the front wheel of to have it "disassembled", put it in a (possibly home-made) canvas/nylon bag with shoulder strap and carry it along on Metro rides as luggage AT ALL TIMES.

(Or maybe get a folding bike with carrying bag)

my knee swelled up with a goose-egg sunday, but it's better now. just some vile bruises. i wish i had started out practicing in my socks. i didn't fall over any after that! i recommend the sock technique. might be hard on the feet with eggbeaters tho.
