A second vote for earlier. I know you crazy kids don't want to hear it from squares like me, but I've got work in the morning. Or how about an alternate day ride for the working stiffs of Philly?

Yeah, I have to be up at 7. This midnight business is not workin' for me. Mondays, wednesday and usually fridays are no good for me either as I am usually doing other things. Lame. Maybe I should just take this job and SHOVE IT!

Just kidding.

Bah. Meh. Hmmm. How about a crazy early morning ride? Like 6am. Or 5? We'll see how you night owls like it. Not that I'm not a night owl. Monday I was up until 1am putting the sweet light set I got at TTown on the cruiser. And the Brooks got mounted (ewwwww) so's I can break it in. Yay! (or nay?)

We could call it the "Sunrise Cycle Sicko Spin" or somesuch thing.

Yeah, I wasn't being too serious. Max wouldn't ever be up to it anyway, eh Mr. Midnight? I think I'll just man up and roll with you kids tomorrow night. Sorry, but road bike and whiskey, no sober and fixie.

The problem is: the charmingly comestible carbohydrate-crammed confections aren't created (and consequently can't be consumed) before the current cycling congregation time.

I let my alter ego Engineer McNerd show through. So, any of you heard the new Bee Gees box set?

thrashin thursdays! 10pm love park.
5 mile slow ride then a fast, intense, careening 15 mile ride giving you a grand tour of philadelphia. (please note that the fast ride does not always occur for other factors. Also licensces and titles may vary please see dealer for more details. Milage is not really 5 nor 15 miles nor is it a gross estimate.)

Thursdays meet at Love Park 10pm for a slow 5 miles then regroup at Love around 10:30 for a fast ~20. I have only hung for the whole fast ride once or twice, but with the right mix of folks it is SWEET. As in, no drunk gnarley older dudes on Treks getting aggro on homeless guys. You know what I'm talking about. Probably not.
