though this would mean polo Wed, Spud's ride Fri, Jonny's party Saturday night, and then the ride Monday... (i guess we could do the ride Sunday if we wanted). too much piracy? i can handle it, how 'bout you?

completely random:
this weekend, in WI, my dad introduced me to one of his friend's sons, in that ackword "you're both lutheran wisconsinites. c'mon, it would be ideal" sort of way. i had biked to the restaurant so he started asking me about my bike. i said i ride fixed, he said he rode a 1-speed with coaster brakes. I was thinking coaster brakes, how odd, but glossed over it. anyway, i noticed he had a Cinzano Mini 500 hat on. Woah. I asked if he was a fan of Breaking Away and he said yeah... but that he raced it when he was in college and now coaches a team. that explains the coaster brakes and freewheel! he was supercool.

REFUND!

Look, i had no idea it couldn't handle the wonder that is me.
Give me a call and tell me what tools you need. I'll bring em with me if i have it. (likely)
We will just have one slightly shorter mallet...it will be for people that ride sub 50cm bikes. NJS it will not be.

did anyone get arrested?

btw: HK midtown suck, there are no bikes on the streets in mid town...illegal, but then the bike mortality rate would be so high.

btw: HK rocks for bikes, there is a bike patch that is 100 km long and goes along the prettiest (for HK) coast line.

for SPud, thanks dude. I am paranoid that my parents will cook my bikes if they are too clos tot he fireplace.

Holy sh*# Tink! My elbow is totally bruised and stiff after our little judo tussle last night in the park. When we fell, I think my arm took the landing for both of us. Ouch! Glad to hear you made it home alive too.

I'm off to Charleston, SC for New Year's. Going to miss the bike shenanagans...Happy New Year Pirates!

photos are up. you'll never guess where. figure it out and i'll forgive you for stealing my cookies.

ps- i think we're finding that tink has a strange affinity for randomly tackling fellow pirates. be warned.

don't forget about Jonny's party saturday.
