I thought it was 30 minutes spent deciding where to go first?

with starting from homebase, i think that creates another problem of mustering exit velocity from warmcozydrinksyumdontwannaleave homebase, which in the end could kill more time.

or why don't we make the meet up time 7:30, and then the slacker (sometimes me) will be punctual

how about saying we'll roll out at 7:10 or so, and if you're late, just make sure you have someone's cell #.

tonight, please dress warm. we'll be riding up to Florida ave to play on a track. when you're not riding, you might get very very cold.

Should we consider meeting up at Homebase
+10
this is brilliant.

i for one am all in favor of not shivering my ball bearings off while standing and waiting for spud to show up.

PLUS they like us at hBase (<------)
PLUS they have food
PLUS they serve tEh booze
PLUS they,, well screw it,, it rocks!

ALL IN FAVOR OF BOOGER's IDEA?
say `aye

I know this is going to be funny coming from me, but if I don't show tonight don't be mad that I made everyone change the meeting place. I just think it is a good idea till spring.

Work sucks but I am going to try and make it.

the other thing is, it should be known where the first place we're going to before we freeze another 15 minutes after the slacker arrives, ive been the slacker last couple times. i mean why wait the ten minutes if you know who the slacker is and the slacker knows where the first stop is? < this is mostly for cold weather, in the spring and summer waiting 10 or 15 minutes is fine.

I just came across this on another thread, apologies to those who have seen it before, but this is a seriously dangerous "bicycle". I needed this on the track last night.

true, there was not much mileage, and there was bowing out early... but from my perspective the track was fun and full of potential, falafel was gobbled, and best of all that hot hot yule log action! i'm glad to have sucha fun ride to ease back into things >>lingering hack<<!

ps. tink, cyclocross was fun! we're smart!

Make you? Nobody made you. We handed you the cans,you drank them. There was no force involved. Some crying perhaps,but no force.

And please tell me that you're just kidding and you really stayed over at poop's. Sparks+skinny smooth tires+snow=not a good idea.

OBTW Chimbley,good thing I had my protective eyewear. Salt truck passed me going up Mass and I felt something ping off the lens with great force. Protective eyewear rocks!
