Good job, that's a good hoof and some less than bike friendly routes.

Fun times last night, I wowed them all with my awesome trick of rising hard and stoping with a brake and not skidding. One day maybe all of you can reach this level of oneness with your trusty mounts.

Nice to meet a few more BF members there, Fuzzzn and Romin. Nice eats after at Dans new fav place, House of Dumplings. Cool video Steven.

I just went into a conference room for some tai chi and vigourous calisthenics and now I feel slightly better. I should really go for a ride come to think of it.

I will make sure to get to the store and pick up a roll of pink and purple polka dots tape just for you.

Judging by the state of Wes's bike after his last Don trip, the fenders will not be yer friend. Mad packed up mud FTL.

It's pretty up and down and all over the place.. depends on your gear ratio and how much you like to walk.

+ what K said.
