No, I really did sail the salty seas! It wasn't very slippery, but you're right, it wasn't my finest moment. My girlfriend didn't think it was a very good idea either. I should have left earlier.

a good time was had by all.

anyone who's hardcore enough to want to ride this weekend, ring me up. i'm thinking Okashii could use some time down on the point.

on 16th, we were crossing an intersection/turn lane, chelsea came up a little fast didnt really notice until it was too late and her front wheel crossed with julie's rear wheel, julie managed to stay up and pedal out of it but chelsea lost balance and hit the pavement still straddling the bike, i think if she had let go it would have been less severe, but her bike kind of pinned her left leg on impact. it could have been worse.

i lost control on the W&OD riding into work yesterday, hit some black ice and back wheel just slipped out, i was able to keep balance for a few more feet but didnt compensate enough and it slid underneath me again, luckily i was able to unclip and just let it slide; i landed on my right leg and hands; so i guess i could have damaged my right knee then, but i didnt feel any pain then or the rest of the night. so whatever i did this morning, i think is just a strain or twist.

ride with your helmets kids, be cautious when riding in groups, slow down and ride gently when its around freezing, keep cellphones within arms length if youre riding alone. keep it awesome.

peace,
spud
