you've been uninvited.

uh.. I was thinking about 5:30 or 6:00. Enough time for a little spin first. As for where, I'm not sure. Obviously a patio is a priority, but I know everyone else in the city is probably thinking the same thing. The Black Bull obviously has a pretty big one, but if anyone else has a suggestion then I'm open.

No conjecture from me. Welcome to construction season, and smog days. And people say I'm crazy for biking through the winter.

That sucks. I grew up right around there. I wonder how it went down, Briar Hill is a side street with minimal traffic.

Hear hear! My thoughts exactly! I remember saying when the weather first improved that simply the number of ****** fair-weather cyclists I have to deal with wobbling around the road and blowing through red-lights on an average warm day makes me appreciate the cold ones... and that didn't even get to anything about construction, smog days, guys in honda civic's with melon-launcher exhausts, sub-woofers, aggressive drivers, drunks, "heat blast" from trucks/busses, etc. Most of those things still exist in the Winter, but they're not nearly as common.

I'm already pressed for space on the bike racks in the basement now. Two months ago I could have parked by laying my bike on the spine of the rack and no one would have said a word. I go down there yesterday and there is a sign which reads "Be Polite ...... take your lock when you take your bike. signed Other cyclists" WTF ? Sorry my brick of a lock is stayin' right where it is.

CV ride organization has been replaced in my mind with "OH sonofa***** I haven't started my paper yet" and "OH sonofa***** I haven't started packing my boxes to move yet". That being said, I am about to head out the door to go for a ride.

speaking of CV, I really have zero clue who all was there on the last ride. The only people I remember are the people I already sort knew.. dom/jeremy/rob. next time we need a group picture with notes on flickr.
