    5th Avenue Skids Competition

    While the streets are closed down, we should totally do this.

    What are they doing? Why do they come here? Some kind of instinct. Memory, of what they used to do. This was an important place in their lives.

    Is that a general statement, or a 6pm ride to 5th avenue for skids?

    How is it that this is the only forum that I know of where people are enjoying themselves during the strike instead of being bummed like the other 99% of the commuting public? And yeah, I'm enjoying myself too.

    alleycat sounds damn good. i'm thinking a combo end of the crazy cristmas week / transit strike alleycat. i've been wearing the same pair of underpants for the past 10 days. one of the preceding statements is false. Vx(Mx > Dx) where Mx = x is a messenger and Dx = x is drunk.

    Quantificationally true.

    Whoops time to stop studying for logic final.

    that's bull**** that they backed off their plan of closing 5th and Madison to general traffic. after only one day? yesterday i was kind of psyched on this strike but today there were FAR more idiots and noobs out there doing really idiotic, noob stuff. far more cars by my estimation, it really is enough to balance out the lack of buses. and now without 5th and Madison being mostly traffic-free... i say screw this, get these obstacles with feet back underground where they belong.

    this strike isn't going to end soon, methinks. they've obviously been planning it for awhile, hence the timing. let's take advantage.

    Thanks for coming out everyone. 5th Ave was open to traffic, so wasn't quite as fun as the first one. I am 50/50 about tommorrow. If I do do it there will be no sound bike, that was a *****.

    Even though 5th was open to traffic I had a fun time riding with you guys. I ended up taking the Brooklyn Bridge home - not the bike path but with traffic. It was a bit lighter than I was expecting so I had to push it to keep up but it was awesome.
