    COLUMBIA U PEOPLE--group rides?

    Since I started school here in the fall, I've seen a few fix's around campus, and I'm wondering if anybody wants to start some sort of fixed/track student organization. We might be able to get the U to give us money for spiffy jerseys and beer. Maybe go out to kissena when the weather is nice, maybe go for group rides in the park (starting from the north!), maybe organize some sort of posenger uptown alleycat.

    I'm not too sure if any cu-affiliated people read this forum, but if you do, give feedback and tell others you know.

    I'm the guy with the shiny black soma. And while the U would probably frown on students mingling with 'the help' (in terms of counting who is officially in the org), I think it'd be awesome to include staff in this.

    I'll make some little flyers to attach to people's bikes, and maybe a couple of posters for people who maybe have a gucci bike at home but ride to school on a hybrid. Columbia is on a big frucking hill.

    I'm waiting to hear whether or not I got in... Grrr. When will they send the silly letter??? If I do get in, I'll be there for the spring semester. Woo hoo. I would be totally down for some sort of Columbia cycling loveliness.

    IF I apply and subsequently accept admission to Columbia, I will most definitely try to join their cycling team. It's weirdly one of things that gets me most excited about gradschool is the opportunity to be on a cycling team, something that I sadly slept on during my undergrad schooling.

    On the otherhand, one year at columbia could buy me 20 complete 3Renshos... decisions, decisions

    On a side note, for a school that charges their students so friggin' much, Columbia's art building (I can't remember what it's called) is ridiculously ghetto. It's almost embarassing. They should, IMO, be ashamed of themselves. But what do I know... I didn't go to Columbia.

    yeah, but they're a bunch of spandexed roadies. i'm more interested in fixed riding, and maybe even track racing, if we get serious interest and maybe some pointers from some veteran or other. only then would I consent to wearing spandex

    you guys should try it. you might like it.

    PS - sorry about my weird, off-hand remark about CUs facilities a few posts up. I'm still feeling some residual bitterness (for various reasons) from an MFA open house I went to a few weeks ago. No reason to air that out here. Apologies.
