    bumped. just moved back to cleveland. if you think there's not a lot going on now, just think about 4 years ago. 7 years ago was pretty cool, many more messengers, some alleycats here and there, and general good time. but 3-4 years ago there was NOTHING really to speak of. it's getting a little better, for sure.

    if you see a beardo with some 50s track bikes, that's me. say hello.

    don't think i don't know that, i was born and raised here! i watched a WVIZ show a long time ago about why they changed the spelling, but i don't exactly remember. how are those wednesday night things? i used to ride them with the RLR (cemetary riders for life!) back when they first started. they definitely didn't have a cool name like bicycle mayhem, but there were some fun drunken sprints through abandoned buildings and what not. the absolute best was when we got into the old subway system underneath the detroit-superior bridge!

    have fun at the alleycat with the 45mph winds. i'll be warm and cozy drinking beer at a costume party on the east side somewhere.

    I'll be coming up to cleveland on the 20th for the alleycat. Anyone have anymore info on that, other than what's in the alleycats thread?
    Yes, I can ride it.
    No, it doesn't hurt.
    No, someone didn't steal the other wheel.
    No, I can't do a wheelie.

    Being a unicyclist can suck sometimes.

    what up, I'm new to BF/fixed gear/etc.

    I live in Philly but I'm from Cleveland and didn't realize there was a messenger/alleycat/fixed scene over there. looks cool.

    anyone have a map of where this Cars R Coffins race went? (checkpoints I guess?) I watched the videos but I can't really tell from them.

    well the weather is getting nice, and i was wondering if anyone here was interested in trying to kickstart the wendsday night rides from public square, last summer there was a good 4-7 people turning up for them but that all seemed to die off by the end of fall..it would be nice to have that again..so if you interested holla back..you know.

    Irregardless is not a word, and you do not sound more intelligent using it.
