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)

We all are going to be eating enough this Thursday, so I was thinking we should do a big Friday ride since I have the day off and we'll all (at least the meatetarians among us) have that turkey energy to ride and ride and ride.

Meet at 11am at the Rollerskating spot in Golden Gate park. It is on JFK betw. 7th and 8th Ave.

See you there!

Anyone can leave when they want.
They will be subject to ridicule of course, but they can leave when they want.

So this has just gotten a little more exciting! There will be a little race going on as well, planned by the mighty Judah (he is doing this so he doesn't have to race himself of course ). So bring your spandex and maybe a map and pen.
Provided you aren't all feeling sick to our stomachs after the racito, there will be an opportunity for all of you to showcase your bwcircles, trix, and skids.

I heard they melt when they get wet.

Although if it is raining I'd rather go diving myself.

No way, the kiyo was fine in the rain.

If it's gonna come down to Galen calling me out, never mind, I'll be there, rain or no rain. If I'm the only one there, you all have to change your titles to "sissy" for a week...

Well, I guess lets just see what happens. I'm sure we can make a reasonable decision (in order to avoid that sissie title) by looking out the window on Friday morning. Then we can post it here for everyone.
I am game for doing this Saturday or Sunday as well.
