so y'all think you can eat a burrito? The burrito bandits challenge you to a burrito eating contest! choose your fastest eater, for a head to head burrito eating demolition derby!

The winner gets to take a picture of the loser and write "worlds worst burrito eater" on it or something.


as long as I don't get sick AGAIN, me and a few other bandits will be at the frostbite, we should have gang patches on or bags, you'll see us, and we'll fight!

i was riding down u st last night around 9pm and saw a guy at the intersection of of 13th riding a red ss/fixie. he didn't seem to know how to ride it very well, was wearing hightop basketball shoes with no socks, no gloves, a huge coat that wasn't condusive to riding, etc. seemed out of place.

it looked like a nice bike...possibly schwinn, red, nitto drop bars with white tape on the ends. seemed kinda odd...

ride recommendation... today i hit up the national arboretum. it has a 3.5 or so mi loop that has great hills, very little traffic, and some cool views of the city. Entrance is on R street just east of Bladensburg Rd, open 9-5 every day.

hey, im new to the DC area and havent been on this forum in a few months due to a holdup getting online access to the house in NOVA i'm living it. (I know, wierd right, thought this was a big city...)

anyway, i love pirates, work full time for apple courier inc and am hopelessly obsessed with bikes, boats and the life styles associated with them...

I've met a few good people in the messenger community but would love to do some group riding that wasn't necessarily so competition oriented as the alley cat scene. I was also wondering about the CM's around here...

I guess more than anything i just wanted to say hi.

hey, julie here.
CM is first friday 6pm at Dupont. This Friday's had 9 people show up. We need help.

Pirates ride just about every week. Today at 12:30 we'll be at the tennis courts on Haines Point. C'mon out. We ride, we drink, we ride some more. Today's ride is more ridey. Evening pillages are more drinkey.

Polo is coming up this Wednesday at 7pm at 14th & K.

The pirate rides are not competitive, though some people like to ride really fast and drop the pack.

Looking forward to this. Anyone showing after 12:30 should ride counter clockwise to find us (an ol pirates trick I've learned). Any and all welcome! I'm planning to ride for a couple hours. Followed by the grilled cheese special. Looks beautiful and no winds outside! Out cat.
