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)

You may all recall my awesome trip to Myles Standish State Forest about a month ago. Anyone up for additional awesomeness? Drop your gear and get some CX tires and let's go, *****es!

I'm gonna be down at MSSF the weekend of Aug 13. Anyone else want to go?

I'll take the train down to Plymouth and it's maybe a 45 to 60 minute ride from there. I have a 2 person tent, but it'd be cozy and would'nt actually fit any gear. So if you don't have a tent, I could take one additional person, but it would be best to have a tent. Also, you'd need to bring some food.

I will have the camp stove and 5 gal water bladder, however.

Expect some light trail riding. Nothing very serious at all.

Damn, I'd totally go but yep, like everyone else on this thread - not in Boston.

What's up with that? (we're all secret randonneurs... or not so secret).

I believe so - who knows? Haven't heard from Mayo - not sure if 165 is in charge now (I haven't seen him in a while, since the track a few weekends ago) or what. I don't even remember the last time the DCC got together - everyone's doing their thing this summer, but it's all good.

Edit: Sorry Trevor, for the hijack!
