Make your way over to St. Pete... we have the Grand Prix in town this weekend. We took the bikes on the track this past weekend. Pretty cool considering they run these things on the city streets where we usually ride our bikes.

Philly kids...go ghost ride that Fixed Fight thread for a while. You guys were suppose to keep the hype alive until race day. What happened?

I'll be stuck in Homosassa with the little girl's great grandmother on the weekend. Maybe I can steal her car and come down to St Pete.

The Enzian sounds cool, I'll have to ask my buddy if he knows of it. I'll be at the Redlight bar the rest of the time. And I think I'll have a bike to ride around...

I do believe tonight requires more blackout drunk cycling on my part. Nothing says fun like sprinting down chestnut in west philly.

oh yea, where will the pictures from the race last saturday be posted?

yep yep! and last night while drunk I found my new favorite thing to scream at pedestrians crossing while I have the green. I've tried oi, HEY, and more descriptive things like BLUE POLO SHIRT. But nothing works as well as drunkenly screaming/slurring "haberdashery" at people.

seriously, try it.

Yeah, all of Skeletor's "yay yeah" and "hep hep" doesn't work for me. I'm back to "YO" now, but I'm going to try "haberdashery" today. I ride 38th/chestnut to 8th to walnut and up to 38th several times a day...my favorite bike routine.

haha wth josh, I was planning on riding home not sprinting home the whole time, I don't know how I got tricked into following your drunken sprints for that time. I think it was the drunken swerving that had me thinking you were going to hit something or just fall.

see, that's what i'm talking about. Last summer we'd meet up in rittenhouse every now and then for it. But if i land a set, I'm definately going to try to get some lunch time action in wash sq.
