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)

Can't go wrong with either. Most people are staying with you, right?

I like the idea of a non-bar because then I can come.

+1 to the bus route.

bus route is asking for trouble. there's been an increased presents of "authority figures" down there the last few times I've used it to cut through town. I ain't no square, but I'm not in the mood to deal with drunk kids who thinks it's fun to be a smart ass to cops, and when they get arrested for tresspassing on federal property, their friend thinks it's a good idea to lie to the cop and tell them their wife works for the FBI (or was it secret service) to try to "make" them let the guy go.

Man, down here getting a "Lake-FRONT! Lake-FRONT!" chant going is pretty much how every party comes to an end, whether it's 3am or 9pm. Sooo nice to just sit out there and knock some down, 'specially if there's a moon.

howevah... The bike cops have started rolling the path, I don't know how late they go but I definitely saw them at like 7:45 the other day. I wasn't here last year, but I know a bunch of people who got ticketed out there in May. Any seasoned lakefront swillers got good beta on this?
