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)

Six Pack Ride

So I stole most of this idea from someone else on the board...last night 8 of us did what we called the "Six Pack Ride". Basically everyone brought a six pack of a beer. Then we all kept on of our own beers and put all the rest of our beers together on a table. We went in a circle and everyone picked one beer at a time until all the beers were "drafted". We started our first beer and whoever finished first chose where we drank our next beers (twoish miles trough downtown RVA). When we got there we all started our second beer and repeated the process...lots of fun.

Sounds like something I've wanted to do for some SS dirt riding. A beer for every lap, and the last one riding is the winner.

oh **** I never went to that.

I was at Belle Isle last year for Slaughterama though, and I bombed a kids bike down that rocky hill near the bridge. I literally flew off it into the air and I was expecting some pain when I magically landed on the seat (only slightly hurting my gooch) and grabbed the handlebars to finish the ride.

wtf? PBR and Yuengling in the same sentence?

Luckily, the shop I work at is only a few blocks from here. MMMMMM...unfiltered, unpasterized, naturally carbonated and naturally delicious.

sounds like something I do, except mine is called the Tour de Drink. It's where you chug four beers and get to riding.
