For sure. But I go to school 5 days a week and work the other two. That makes for many rideless days

Mind you, summer does rockzors in the bike biz!

HA! Suckers. I get paid to ride my bike all day!

Speaking of which I'd be up for some mountain bike riding. Maybe this will finally motivate me to fix the flat on my ****ty mountain bike and get a seatpost that's long enough.

The seatpost in your track bike is long enough for 4 bikes

8pm @ La Carrera, I'd show up at least 15 early though, better to chill & find out what's up than to show up and start.

2 race divisions, track and everything else

I'm not going to race phhht

I think I'll definitely be riding that Poker Ride, 10$ for a guy that got his bones on the outside = good time = good value

*cough* and when is that one again?

As for the race at La Carerra, I have some errands to run after work, but I'm hoping to make it to the race to hang out and take some pictures.
