    Any races/events coming up in Boston?

    Are there any races coming to boston in the near future? If so, will these be open to people other than messengers?

    Races have been a little weird this year. There was no Fallout but there have been a couple of other races over the summer. There's usually a race sometime around October.

    I had this dream of a balls-out sprint down Memorial Drive. But maybe Storrow would be more exciting. Ahem.

    I'll be at the track on Thursday if people want to sprint some laps. Miss&Out, maybe Madisons, maybe an actual bracketed event if we can get enough kids out.

    I've ridden Storrow. It's even legal, though I don't think I would do it in the dark or during the week.

    Have you seen Lucas Brunelle's video of him and a few other bikers riding the big dig before it was opened? www.digave.com/videos

    Have you seen the SCUL movie where they ride to the airport the legal way and decide "screw it" and ride back in the Ted Williams and get caught by the 5-0s?

    At 2:30, it's about an hour too long, but it's still fun. I bought the DVD 'cause it was $10 if anyone wants to borrow it.

    Holy crap, no wonder I was falling out of my chair at the midnight screening. I like me some SCUL, but it better be Scorsese if it's two and a half hours long!
