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)

DC Pirates: Sail the Seven "C's" for Scurvy Cessation!

It occurred to me the other day that we might include C Street in the itinerary.

Sherwood. September 23rd. Be there or be .

Have we set a time to shove off yet?

September 23rd is also the final Q and Not U show. And the weekend of the Seagull I'm riding to Harrisonburg and back with my friend. I probably should quit my job so I have more free time.

Okay, here's the thing. I'm coming from Rockville, and I can't actually take my baby on the Metro until 7pm.

Any advice on how to get into DC? Should I suck it up and do 20 on the way in? I don't even have a clue on where to begin thinking of a route.

That would be keen if you go west on the W&OD. I could meet up with everyone in Falls Church or something.

WU4me, meet us at key so we can see you climb Lee hwy.
EmMildew, we'll figure out something about the 23rd. may have a spare if you are between 5' 5" and 6'. But if you must ride, prob rockcreek via beach drive? or traffic it all the way down rockville pike which turns into wisconson ave and into geotown ( or detour to cap cresent from bethesda......

But there's still today and tomorrow!
I know that WU4me and I were talking about riding today after work... any other takers? Pcow? network1? LBK?

Nothing crazy - i'll try and keep it under 20 miles.

I can't make the training ride on Saturday; I wish I could. What is this Seagull Century anyway? I assume it's too late to try and join in on that?

I'm looking forward to the 23rd!

The Seagull Century is the world's flattest century. It starts at Salisbury University in Maryland on Saturday, October 8th. I'm pretty sure it's not too late to register, but it costs more if you sign up after August 15th.

Oh, I won't be around that weekend. I think I forgot that I already knew that. Oh, well, maybe next year.
