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)

2-Tea (very funny, I didn't bring water, I had just had whiskey, my mouth was... a little dry)
3-sing "take me out to the ball game" (no complaint)
4-quiz (when was the ground broken on the Shed = 1927)
5-rum with red bull floated on top (delicious)

know what's funny.. i totally cheated. WAAHHHAAAHHAA ..

but i didn't mean to. you gave me a teabag and said "thanks for being a good sport".
i just said thanks and stuck the thing in my pocket. i missed the consumption part.

although i recall riding off and hearing someone else say "he's totally gonna eat it."
i thought he was talking about falling off north point into the lake. anyway...

Checkpoint 0=the secret one way the **** up Ashland, unmanned.
Checkpoint 1=Logan Circle, unmanned.
Checkpoint 2=Montrose Wilson Beach?, unmanned.
Checkpoint 3=Michigan Ave Bridge, unmanned.
Checkpoint 4=Field Museum, Taco Sparks Handoff, 1 NJS stamp!
Checkpoint 5=Skylark, unmanned.

Photographs of DFL pirates to come later in this thread.

My favorite checkpoint was 4.5.

I had to flip over my bike and rip a hole in pants. Then I had to get a bus to pull over and ask me if I was ok.

I was definitely keeping it awesome.

Ditto Judah, except swap out "dino toes" for "Man with Fish" and "yummy tea" for "awesomely disgusting tea that filled me with hatingly hateful hate."

Also:
Point 0.5 - Threw my chain
Point 2.5 - Flat tire
Point 4.5 - Flat tire
Point 6.5 (on the way to salome's (?)) - Flat tire

cp4: dino toes!
cp5: drank redbull. but the poor cp girl kept just saying "redbull" to me. and i was like "what about it? WTF do you mean redbull?" i really abused her.
cp6: playing spin the bottle with teenagers at nicole's.

what the 'messenger skills' didn't help you out at 3? you're just bitter and a great actor, I'm sure you were swearing at me all day yesterday when I wasn't paying attention. That's okay, I probably deserved it.
