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)

Seattle-Alki ride anyone?

If you're in Seattle and happen to want to ride out to Alki today, me and a couple friends are trying to get people to go. If you see this before 1 30 shoot me a PM. Its a 9 mile ride out to the beach and 9 miles back, and hopefully the weather will hold up.

Haha, so long story short, I saw this at 4ish and thought it'd be fun so I called up my buddy and we headed out at 5ish. I had never been there before, and it was a fun ride, but the trail along the ship container area is so boring. Once we actually got on alki trail, it was mad fun.

I gotta say, though, I was pretty disappointed w/ the beach area and its overabundance of ricers/caddys with flip doors/bros and freakin annoying little dogs.

It's a nice ride there, Ive done it several times and Im not tired of it yet (except the expensive food). Next time we go out there Ill post something via PM's. I think we had left around 5 or 6 or something, you probablly passed us on the way.

Me n a friend took a quick ride to Matthews Beach Park today, but I was a ****** and didn't take allergy meds so we came back early. The water there's crisp n cool and and especially refreshing on a day like today.

How many people ended up going? Yeah, food is hella pricey. I have my hydration pack w/ me most of the time so it wouldn't be hard just stuffing a footlong in there.
