Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Every Saturday This Summer! Sf Crew..

Am thinking this weekend meet up should happen every saturday this summer. the roller skaters have the pad at 8th ave and fulton on sunday, so lets take saturday. we can hang out, learn new skills (like nunchaku skills) see what everyone is into, enjoy some sun, hava portable sound system. and when a big enough group forms, we can all go for a ride. Lets see how it goes today at noon. peas

We met up on Saturday at the roller-skating spot, but it's hard for me to hang at one place like that, I always want to get out and ride.

Sounds like a plan! The rollerskater spot has some nice pavement and no (few) rollerskaters on saturday.
Benches and some shade. That could be a fun permanent spot.
The panhandle has a nice spot too east of the basketball courts. Both spots are nice and close to beer, and bbq.

well, we still have a keg from the picnic, should we drag it out to the roller rink saturday? noon seems a bit early for most, lets try like 1pm. sound system, freestyle, till we are full of liquid courage. then we can do a ride from the short ride book. thoughts?

This makes sense, but I think we should try and do a little riding. Those rollerblading kids have the friday night skate where they meet up downtown every friday and cruise around the city. Maybe we could switch up between a ride one week and tricks/chilling the next. Thoughts?
