    3'rd Annual Northeast Mpls drunken bar bike tour

    This might not be the right forum for this, but it's the only forum I really hang out at, or know any Mpls rider's hang out at.It starts at Behind Bar's bicycle shop at 4pm(free BBQ)September 12. Then going to 13 bar's starting at 6:00 ending up at Grumpy"s at 1:00.Sounds like alot of fun-I'll be on Sat ride on the 4th to show Sat rider's the schedule,for most of them don't visit BF.Might be a good hang over ride after Sat 11th ride.Have bar's list and time's if interested-obviously I'am not putter savvy.

    I'd better go turn in a PTO request form, shouldn't I?

    Paid Time Off. I work sunday nights at 10 - I doubt they'd want me in after going to 13 bars

    I went on the 3rd lower bike tour last spring (lower north east.. this ride is the upper n.e.) and it was a blast.. 60 or so people packing into little bars and getting loaded leaving huge piles of bikes locked to everything in site.. i can remember a few people crashing but everyone seemed alright and no trouble with the law.. ive been looking forward to the 3rd upper all summer
    and the only choice i have left is what to ride my old SS tandem or the fixie
    hope to see you there

    Ok, please explain this. You meet and eat and ride to bars (some seem very close to each other - like across the street)? When it says 6:00 at this bar and 7:00 at that bar, does that mean you have an hour to get there or you hang out for an hour?

    Either way, I need to do this. I am very jealous.

    You should do it. Hell, you should come up for the sat night ride too! 9 pm, Mc Donald's parking lot in Dinkytown... Last weekend was a blast. The funest part was the gridlock at the state fair... man those cars were pissed at us - probably 20-25 bikes just booking down the dotted white line passing everyone as they stood still - even the cops directing traffic were smiling!

    WOW!!!!

    Pics will be coming soon, but I think that was the most fun I've ever had on a bike! There were probably close to 100 riders. I think the only types of bikes not represented were recumbents and big wheels (yeah, there was even a unicyclist for 2 stops!) We pretty much filled every bar to capacity at each stop - it was freakin NUTS!!! We had 3 guys ride through the stop that was at a bowling alley - it was hard to even walk in there, let alone ride... Others are still out there riding - last I saw, most were headed for the strip club. Gilby and I bailed a little early after stopping at the last stop before it got too crazy.

    I think we should do this type of ride at least once a month. Hopefully I actually have money for the next one. Kind of surprised to get drunk, stoned and eat with no money...

    C'mon Minneapolis - we need much much much more of this!!!!!!!!!!

    The ride was awesome! More than I've had to drink in a long time (and a 9 am class to get to this morning), so it's probably best for me that it doesn't happen more frequently

    Yeah I wasn't able to hang as long as I would have liked to with you freaks, I had to get back on the bike @ 6:30 to work this morning. I did have fun on the 5 stops I made it for, it was still a little difficult to wake this morning though.

    Funny how making a bike tree seems like a good idea, till you want to leave..

    Hehehehe.. I had to drive back to Wisconsin to work. I went to sleep around 3ish and managed to get up at 7:30. Needless to say, my body wasn't very happy with me. The drive was painful, yet uneventful. I should have my pictures up later this week.

    All I can say is more power to you. I did a clean and sober run with a couple friends out to Wayzata and back, with stops at a couple coffee joints. There are times when I wonder if this sobriety thing is worth it, cause mad sick fun like a drunken bar ride, well...

    I couldn't make the bike ride the other weekend. Just wondering if adapting a ride idea from our neighbor to the south might be worthy.
