well didn't make this one (obviously), but I def. want to come out and meet everyone. My buddy and i started a bike 'gang' in the town i used to live. We rode on sundays at 1pm and i was just thinkng about how much i missed those rides. It was really laid back, did about 30 miles total and stopped half way through to talk shop and eat chip-whiches.

When I first started it there was 3 or 4 of us that would meet, ride then end up back at my house where I would show peeps how to do simple maintnance on their bikes. By the time i moved there was about 30 of us, we had monthly meetings, petitioned the city for bike lanes and bike path funding, lead group rides for people that didnt ride much so they could feel more comfortable riding on busy streets, had a bike recyclery and were looking for store fronts to start a co-op bike shop. It was really amazing.

now i would just love to meet a group of people to just ride/hang with on the weekends. Is the sunday ride a weekly thing?

chimblysweep - did you do one of the check points at the Rico alleycat? You look really familiar...

Haines pics are up.

Good ride! Great weather (for january)! Cool peoples! (except for drive-by snarks from roadies) Who could ask for more. I'm all for making weekend ridey-rides a regular thing. Here's to the pirates, cradle to grave!

This is awesome. Well done, and how cool that things gelled and grew hair like that.

You should come meet/ride/hang w/us. I think they sell chipwiches at the haines club house even, if you don't do grilled cheese. Which don't make no sense to me but to each his/er own. Yeah, and lurkers should come out too. Lurkers need to start participatin.

Bah, today doesn't work for me. I had a random project thrown at me, and can't get away.

BTW, I put that new stem on, it makes the benotto an entirely new bike!!

I'm picking up the mallets, and i'll see you folks at sherwood at 7, RAIN OR SHINE.

i got a rather disturbing phone call from a fellow pirate asking whether the game was on for tonight, since it's (*EEK!*) gently raining. I remind you that pirates are hearty and polo is funner in the rain. I also remind you that we recruited two new people who should be coming and cannot be let down.

thus,
see you at 7pm at sherwood.

NEW RULE: tink is not allowed to drink alcoholic beverages from glass bottles at polo anymore. why? because, even though he didn't show up for polo last night, his presence was felt, in that glass from his bottle-breaking last week flatted spud this week.

spud, care to elaborate? who's a ******lips?

ps - in case i haven't told y'all this lately, you rock, pirates.

Dear Pirates,

I hate my knee. I have had to dock my ship in port if you will. The pain got so bad on my ride a few days ago that I road home with one leg. Being a good pirate I yelled, Yar! at everyone that looked at me funny.

I plan on resting it till Sat. I don't think I will race, but plan on representing anyhow.

I hate being landlocked.

I was so inspired by LBK's perfectly framed over-the-head shot that I made this DC Pirates wallpaper. I was also inspired by the fact that I have expensive Adobe software that has sat fallow for far too long. But be fore-warned it's designed for 1024 X 760 resolution.
