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)

i'll be in california buddy, me an "jackcasey" both, for those lifetime shows. plus, if i did go, i'd have to get in your giant mess.bag about halfway through and take a nap with my bike while you kept riding...then after about 3 redbulls and a couple clif bars i would finally have the strength to crawl out and call a cab.

I'd be up for that another weekend... My friend and I were planning to do that trip anyway, so if schedules work out, we might as well go with some other people to.

whoa. i'll be down next weekend, too. yes, i was going to go round trip. this would be the second time. it's about a 120 mile round trip last time to atlantic city. it took about 8 and a half hours for me. on my track bike. 40-14 gear ratio. it was a while ago, so i don't remember if i wanted more or less gear inches. yeah, it was fun. i'm no stallion. but i get it done. to everyone that said next week. i'm calling you out later.

-jason

oh, and you kids in cali have fun. and you suck for getting more lifetime.

I'm totally down but work/band schedule doesn't seem to want to help me out much anytime soon.

when the weather turns nicer, though, spontanious ocean city trips all summer long.

I cannot abandon my stomping grounds due schedule.

Sound like a summer project to me.

are they ever going to unlock that bridge? or will they just keep it locked until all the terrorists are dead... ever. I miss riding out there, it's a good view of the city.

alright, has anyone of us done this before of know of a route that's simple to follow? i'm looking at routes that different clubs have taken and the ms150 route and they seem extremely complicated, like some with turns every block, i figure we need to be concerned formost with simplicity, any thoughts?

how would we go one way? how would we get home? ****, I keep forgetting I have class saturday, but anyway, you should make this ride like, a monthly thing, Id love to come one time when I'm actually free.

But I think one way is more safe...especially if we'd be riding home in the dark.
