    Bridge Battle II

    NYC

    We dont got a lot of topography below 114th, so climbing bridges is what we do for hill training.

    SATURDAY MAY 13th. 2PM:RACE. 1PM REGISTRATION @ 23rd st and the FDR (in the waterfront park, not on the highway. dumb ass.)
    SIDEVENTS: Footdown, stands, skids, sprints, (please someone think of something new, please) to follow at Bicycle Film Festival Street Festival, hosted by Trackstar.
    All of this to be followed by Messenger Night at the festival. and then a party somewhere with a bunch of DJs.
    It's a festival with side festivals, I'm sure it will all be very festive.
    Maybe you'll learn more by watching a complimentary instructional video at MESSnyc.net

    There was a whole urban-rodeo theme... barrel racing was a good idea. So was bronc riding.

    ive thought about doing the urban rodeo thing. it would be a good time. barrel racing would be awesome.

    you could also do stuff that involved throwing something at a target while riding or something like that

    What are they doing? Why do they come here? Some kind of instinct. Memory, of what they used to do. This was an important place in their lives.

    we did this in Delaware a couple years ago. we cut out a piece of wood to look like a civic and strapped it to a shopping cart. inside was a dummy. someone would run with the shopping cart and push it down an incline and you had to ride by and try to throw a u-lock at the dummy's head.

    I took a look at my fixed this evening and I dont think she is up to the ride tomorrow. I will have to ride my mtb with slicks. It will give my achy knee a rest.

    woke up a bit late to race, but i hung out for the side events.

    can't believe that guy held up for 15 backwards circles and some of the skid distances.
