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)

Chicago, Tonight 01/26, Ride?

Against my better judgement, cause I got work to do tonight, I'd like to ride for an hour or so. Anyone want to go out. I get off the train at Hubbard and Western at about 4:45, any time after that I guess.

Meet in wicker park at north/damen/milwaukee, as I have no concept of how long it takes me to get to boulevard bike shop. 7pm to give enough lead time to recruit more riders if possible.

maybe I am being a really big wuss, but I am not down for riding that route tonight. It repeatedly passes through the area where some kids tried to pull me off my bike.......
plus I have some work to do tonight, so i cant ride that late and long....was looking to head out a little earlier, but anything else? critical mass is tomorrow

yeah I am getting kinda weak looking at the route. If you have any suggestions for a destination or route, try it out, But is the meetup-spot/time good for you?
