Would anyone who's attending tonight happen to know how to set a front deraileur? Apparently I'm not smart enough to do so, and have been commuting with about 5 gears on a triple for a week.

Thanks,
Pat

the results.
14 riders, more or less, pillaged rum from 4 bars.
two riders were involved in two crashes over the course of two miles and spent 30 minutes giggling in the first aid aisle of CVS. no bicycles were injured. blood was shed, but just enough to cause giggling.
cheese fries were consumed.
piracy was celebrated.
and to all a good night.

more photos.

oh, and superthanks to the friendly folks of the Washington International Youth Hostel. Located at 11th and K, it's the perfect cheap place to stay when nobody will let you stay on their couch. They hooked up a pirate with a gauze pad and some scotch tape when it seemed all hope was dashed. Thanks, hostellers!

The Modern Drunkard gave me an idea which requires that I ask a very simple question...

Is this

worth $45.00? If so then feel free to order up. I think I'm still undecided.

Diabutsusan,

Don't worry, the second half (the part I attended) was fun but ended with bad rum and then drunken Harper screaming outside of fox and hounds.
Kim says sorry.

BTW, we have a local bag maker and may have another.

Anyone interested in Sunday Afternoon rides?

I finish around 3.

BTW, I am clearing out my stash.

I have 0ne project bike schwinn, lotsa parts (bars, some wheels, etc). um a columbus hat?

Anyone wanna help paint chain reaction and meet Jimmy, the best mechanic in DC?

I know, But the cheese rides end before I am free at three o'clock.

Peter and I went to for a few laps and then down to gravelly point last sunday, really nice weather. There were even some blossoms left near the end of the loop.

Thus...Sunday afternoon rides (late).

Or, if you are riding around the city, come up to Takoma park between 10 and 2 and get delicious Organic cheese, yoghurt, meat veggies, mushrooms, eggs, bread, etc.

Also, the worlds hottest pepper jack.

Yup. From the eBay listing:
"Have the ride of your life in a brand-new Sugoi cycling jersey designed for the 2001 Enron team riding in the MS 150 from Houston to Austin, Texas. Jeff Skilling, former CEO of Enron, was the lead rider and wore a jersey just like this!"

So I guess they weren't all bad.

BTW,gonna be stuck at work late. No Cardoza for me tonight.
