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)

Out of Towners rocked at the StuporBowl!!!!

Even though I got lost and did not finish, out of towners did better than we did, for the most part. Congrats.

Thanks a lot, Andrew.
It was nice to meet you.
You were only one of two BF members I met at the Stupor Bowl, not counting Super Rookie.
Wish I could have met more.

I'm glad Madison was there in full force for my first alleycat.
Props to the mpls crew and everyone else for a fun ride.

I heard today that at least one of the Philly girls was actually only ex-mpls for less than a year... But still counted as Philly.

But what the hell do I know? I've been drinking silly since Wed night.

Work is not going to be fun tomorrow.

I'm not sure but I might be in at least one photo. I was interviewed though at the end outside of Grumpy's. By who I have no idea, I was tired and seeing double.

andrew, you were the only one that I got to BS with.

Met SuperRookie, very briefly.

I recognized HereNT's Fuji at one of the stops, so I said what's up...

And that was it for me.

My first alleycat and definitely one of, if not the best time I've had on my bike.

Always nice to be recognized. Thanks, Andy.

Indeed, the out-of-towners did rock SB9. Way to put balls to the walls, guys.

The Stupor Bowl is always the best time of the year to me. It's like another holiday. Wait. It's not like another holiday, it is another holiday.

I love the fact that SR is wearing his (now) trademark oatmeal colored sweater. It goes with everything!

Are you talking about the woman with the microphone? I was interviewed, too, as I was pumping up at The Hub and trying to get back to Grumpy's (2.5 miles) within 7 minutes.

Who was that? Are we going to be on the radio sometime soon?

That's a good question! I was too much into answering her questions that I didn't bother to ask where she was from. I'm sure someone will tell me about it sooner or later. I felt really important for like 1 minute........
