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)

SF - Saturday movie in the park

This Saturday at 8pm they're going to be showing Bullit in Dolores park. Anyone want to meet up and check it out? Figure we should get there early and stake out a spot. SFBC has valet bike parking too.

As an aside, Saturday will also probably be a nice day to ride around during the day. You all have my number...

yup, I'm down for the movie. I was planning on riding around the city and checking out the Tibet show at the asian art museum.

Hey, I don't have your number—what gives? I'll see about going—sounds really cool. I'll be up for a bike ride too that day if people are up for it.

does anybody go to those $1 punk rock breakfast things? i went to one last month and noticed there were a ton of bike dudes and babes. i believe i'm going to the one this sunday.

I gotta get a new tire, mine is already threadbare in 6 or more spots and I'm gonna put 50 miles on it tomorrow, so I'd be down to meet sometime after I hit up freewheel hayes. Maybe noonish in the panhandle?
