The HD footage I took looks awesome, there are some great shots. Shooting from a skateboard produces this really sort of eery dream effect. Its awesome though, I'm editing it down this weekend and hopefully I can get something on the net. Of course it'll suck on the net because it won't have the wonders of HD definition. Its really amazing how much better things look on HD.

Oh and this weekend is the last call to get on the list for Track 2 and beyond on Sept 16th. I'm going to ask about the possibility of doing Track 1 earlier in the day but organization of such an effort I shall leave to other people...

In Simpsons 15x09 (I only watched this one episode with the bikes), they clearly show a 10 speed bike pwning a singlespeed. Ridiculous.

I'll likely be there btw. I'm at Jet Fuel doing some work right now.

edit: Jeremywhitehorn: did you guys ride today? I was going to stop by for some coffee, but for some reason I thought you guys were meeting around 10:30, not 9:30. I was wasting time so as to not get there super early and then checked here to confirm the time at around 10:00, which was obviously too late to get down there in time (with the assumption that you guys do things on time ).
