we all do!

even better, we have a ride where you get one point for every beer or whole milk you drink. whoever has the most points at the end of the night decides... at the end of the night.

I think should be open to everyone and judged by everyone. Tink--you did the last one, give other people a shot!

I want to come out for the ride tonight. I know folks meet at Dupont Circle at 6:00, but were do the Pirates meet, and when does the ride actually start?

I ask because I typically work in Rockeville until 6ish. I might just make the ride if I take the red line directly to Dupont Circle, and the ride doesn't promptly start at 6.

If I don't make it I guess I'll spend the night designing a new Pirate T-Shirt.

I should make CM,I'm planning on slicking out early.

Here's that image I Pirated for the spokecard. Maybe Tink or someone else talented can tweak it to be DCP shirt appropriate.

CM tonight, I'm trying to get out by 5:30 which should let me make Dupont by 6 ... does it start on time? Can I be 15 minutes late and not miss the bus?

Heh. I think the last CM I was at,I got there at 5:45,and called Chimbly at 6:05 to see if anyone was going to show up.

Don't worry. CM runs on Pirate Nominal Time.

Remember that there are no bikes allowed on Metrorail between 4 pm and 7 pm on weekdays...

Having just now hopped on the bike forum, I see all the well-wishes. Thanks for all the notes! I do appreciate them.

Just to set the record straight, my shoulder is broken in 3 places, as opposed to the collarbone (which might've been even more painful I think)

Spud, you are one bruised potato. Aside from the fractured bones, I've still got some pretty shiners, but none like those rather graphic pics you have posted! Sorry to miss you at lunch today. Tink, don't forget to post that pic in the park so Spud too can compare wounds.

Irony can be a cruel joke sometimes, but I will gniog peek says gnidir peek. I think this is an ideal point to end with my first "Yarr!"

so yeah, rules say no bikes,
but if you're quick about it, noone will notice.
happens all the time

for those of you coming out to the massive
we should all meet up around 6 center of the circle
the ride usually won't leave the park until 6:30ish
and tonight I'll make sure we don't.

if you are going to be a little late, feel free to get the 411 by calling my cell
5seven1 two3nine 5three7nine
I'll let you know where we are.

..
..

and Jules, dont even think like you'd have a shot!
get back under the table missy!

Yeah, and it may be easier to sneak a bike on while getting on an in-bound train up in Rockville, too.

Yeah, I've done it several times before. They seem to only get pissy about the rules at Metro Center.

I'm definately gonna try to make it to Dupont Circle A.S.A.P. I've missed the last two CM's.

Tink,

I just realized that I inadvertantly had you post that pic for me! Please know that this was not because I was trying to avoid the intimidating technology of this forum.

But just to show I've got the skills, here is a pic from the last race I ran in Miami. It cracks me up because the other guy looks so pained...but then again, he did finish ahead of me so I can't make fun of him.

I was there around 11'ish ... went around backwards twice I think. I was looking for fixed gears and spoke cards, but only saw roadies and bladers. After a while I went the right way a couple more times and had to leave. The headwinds SUCKED!!
