    weather.com as of 3:45 tells me rains starts at 10pm. Boo. I'll be out on the Schwinn again if this is the case. Prepare to be beaten by a 29 year old guy on a 29 year old bike, b*tches. Not really.

    Ive never been one to follow the damn RULES! I kinda didnt have a bike tonight cause I tore apart my Kenai to build a bastard touring bike for the weekend. What will this ride be like tomorrow? Because my "need 25 feet to stop cause of horrible brake situation" janketty touring bike and my "25 feet of toe overlap" road bike share a back wheel and chain.

    P.S. I would ride the GT, but its all washed up and ready to be sold. The last time I thought about riding it was at the holy grail race, but i didnt because if I crashed it while it was on ebay id be f*cked... and then I got run over by a car that day.

    Any leftover rain to end by noon, at 6pm they're calling for 56 degrees and windy (20mph). Looks like a perfect scenario for a first fall Fermented Friday fracas.

    Guess what band isn't so good. Go on. I bet you can't guess.
    If it's worth the going it's worth the ride.

    Yeah, rub it in, Max. I'll be able to make it next week. Luckily I'm only working Thursday and Saturday.

    Max, you need to get a mountain bike with lights. I did a crazy halloween-scare-yourself-silly Fairmount park ride on Tuesday night. So yeah, what's the deal with Friday?

    Tguster, what did the Metro article say? I went out to the local box, but no more papers.

    Here ya go, hot off the presses, and the ovens.

    THE PRETZEL UNDERGROUND - A man, a bicycle ans Philly's most mobile food tradition.

    OF ALL OF Philadelphia’s signature foods, there’s only one that inspires a regular field trip. Got a
    bike and a midnight craving? This is the pastime for you.

    ‘In love’
    I first heard of the Tuesday night event from a friend over drinks at McGlinchey’s. “Has anyone ever heard of the Pretzel Ride?” he asked. The next thing I knew, I was struggling to keep up as we raced our bikes to the Art museum. We had to get there before midnight, we were told, or the weekly ritual would carry on without us. A few dozen kids and twice as many wheels assemble every Tuesday at the foot of the famous stone steps. It’s a
    veritable underground bicycle gang, in search of South Philly’s finest soft pretzels. When midnight flashes across the top of the PECO building, they’re off. The ride makes its way leisurely down the Ben Franklin Parkway in a tight-knit single unit, holding traffic at bay until it reaches Arch Street. Then it’s a slight turn onto 15th before winding around City Hall and out onto a well-lit stretch of Broad, a straight shot all the way down to Washington. The bicycles take over — on the pretzel ride route, the cars are no longer the masters of the road. On my first pretzel ride, I let my hands fall from the handlebars as I pedaled and grinned at my friend.
    “This is incredible!” “Yeah!” he shouted back. “I’m in love with every girl here!” Worth the trip. This crew might not return that love, but the pretzel ride regulars do tolerate strangers. On our ride, my companion struck up a

    conversation with one rider on a six-foot-tall yellow bike that must have been borrowed from the circus. All along the route, riders chat away, oblivious to the consternation coming from the cars around them. The ride ends with a left onto Washington Avenue and a few blocks farther to its intersection at Eighth Street. There the
    Center City Soft Pretzel Co. opens its doors at midnight (1 a.m. on Saturday). The faster bike riders form a line (a ridiculous sight, considering the time of night), and the few customers who don’t arrive on bikes end up a little confused. The pretzels are four for $1, served with the best nacho cheese in the city. I’m amazed I didn’t
    notice the smell all the way back at the Art Museum. No sooner had we gorged on the first batch out of the
    ovens that everyone took off, separately, into the night. The route home is up to you but made all the better by the fact that you’re clutching paper bags that hold the remains of the best breakfast ever.
