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)

Chicago riders - group ride this weekend?

I figured I'd post this now so people would have time to figure things out. I'd like to get people together for a group ride this weekend. Maybe go down to Chinatown for food or something like that. Who'd be up for something? Saturday and Sunday both work for me - if you're interested in this let me know what day and time would be best for you. I'd prefer a morning start to afternoon.

I may be up for it depending on how much of my soul has been sucked from me by the public school system.

US Pro Criterium. Highlights include Bike vs. Rollerblader & Big Wheels!
Ian Mackaye would be there, if he knew about it.

I was thinking maybe around 10:00 Saturday morning, people could meet up somewhere north side. I'm feeling sorta lazy, so a shorter ride involving some general off-bike loafing would be cool by me.

Cool. Let's talk sooner to that time. I need some time during the day to get some s**t done around my place and maybe do some planning. Either in the morning or after the ride. Either way, some ride will happen.

why dont all of you stop by the thorndale redline and fill out some of my girlfriends masters-thesis surveys? i'll be there with a sign on my bike that says "fill out a community garden survey, chance to win 20 bucks (and in really small type.. i'd rather be eating feces". good, embarrasing times ahead. (but you have live in wicker park, ravenswood, or rogers park).

excellent- i'll keep my eye out for a mob of fixie-riding survey-filler-outers! you cant miss us - we'll be the idiots trying to get mean chicago-ans to fill out a survey. (look for a pink-moustached-SS and a red-saddlebagged-SS)

naz: bring all your friends, i know you have a ton

Awww. I'd like to meet up for a ride but I'll be at the DG crit. Hey, what about getting together a night ride some time? I love having the roads to myself late at night. We could even stop by Pick Me Up Cafe for a nosh.
