    Friday Night Fixed...Oakland

    For those of you who can't stand sitting in the traffic that is the SF Critical Mass tonight. The awesome folks at Montano Velo are holding their weekly Friday Night Fixed ride. Meet up around 7ish, leave around 7:30ish. The ride usually snakes down towards Emeryville and heads out along the Bay on the bike path til it ends somewhere in Point Richmond (or something like that). For city folks - BART trains that allow bikes start leaving at 6:36 from EMB. Get off at MacArthur.

    Meet here:
    Montano Velo
    4266 Piedmont Ave
    510.601.1824

    Come say hi.

    I'm pretty slow, if I went out would they drop me? Is this a fixed-only ride, or can I ride my comfort bike?

    Yes, if you're as slow as Judah, Critical Mass SF is your dream "ride"

    In all seriousness, there's no dropping of anybody. TIP was *****ing about the pace last time but she just likes to complain. She kept up just fine.

    And yes you can ride your "comfort" bike. And bring your inflatable arm bands if you must.

    Ahh, ok, at least I'm faster than TIP...


    As for the comfort-bike, I broke two chainring bolts on it two days ago, so it's down for the count until I can find some replacement sugino bolts. Stupid NJS crap, can't take a beating.

    I'll have to see what the rest of the gang is up to, I've heard that the clowns are causing trouble on the west-side, we might have to go regulate...

    That sucks. Montano has suprisingly good supply of NJS stuff in stock. They just might have what you need.

    If you do decide to roll, shoot me a PM and we can all meet up at EMB.

    heading over to critical mass tonight...wanna try that weely friday ride you guys do though sometime...i dont know oakland at all


    for anyone interested, we're getting a group ride going on in SF this Sunday... meeting at Dolores Park at noon. The plan is to ride out and around embarcadero and up and over the golden gate bridge. then come back over and get drinks etc.
    itll probably be a range of fixed/singlespeeds/geared road bikes and guys and girls, so anyones certainly welcome to come along

    Anybody else going? I just dropped by the shop to make sure I knew where it was, and I'm thinking I might finally get out there for it. I did notice some raindrops, which surprised me and my toes are now pretty cold, so if I don't go it's probably because I'm a sissy. Also, a question - Do you guys usually bring lights? and if so, is it bad that I won't have one?

    Ode to the after work nap ( ride your bike instead)

    Ode to the nap
    The evil, evil nap
    It lures
    you succumb
    But only with good intent
    Shortly I will rise
    But you do not.
    Do not succumb
    To the evil, evil nap

    well, I didn't make it. Anyone else? I'm moving tomorrow, so I've been at the house packing up everything. I'll probably be there pretty consistently starting next fri. It's great actually being able to move along at a decent clip w/o having to hang out with the spandex crowd. Last week there were some beautiful bikes being ridden also. Nagasawa, Gan Well, Landshark, etc etc. Great eye candy.
