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)

SF Drunken Ride

So, I missed to Saturday morning SF ride because I went to El Rio on Friday night and was hungover Saturday morning, and it seems some other people had the same problem. So I was thinking why not do a nightime drunken ride. We could start at Pop's on Saturday night to get $1 PBRs and then move on from there. Anyone interested?

The married with children representatives, i.e. me, find it difficult to do drunken, night rides. HOWEVER, I just got permission to ride on Saturday night. Time to break out the ole flask I think.

I'm down to meet wherever. Pop's is cool, or we could do something in the mission or even down here in SoMa, or up in North Beach at the Crow Bar. Whatever...

Henry, the usual?

Wherever it's ok to lockup my new IRO, or I can just bring my flask filled with Scotch.

you still have to be discreet...i mean they can grab you up here as well...which is why you can simply walk your bike if you get that "you looked f^%ked up look from the folks in blue" i have had to do this on a couple of times late night leaving the bar where i work....walk around the corner...cut up an alley...through a cut...and bam...its on again....


that being said....where are we meeting up for this run tonight....looks like i see the sun burning through the fog....well kind of...

I'll probably meet Henry at my place since he's probably riding CalTrain in and I live in SoMa. Which bar are we gonna hit first?

Edit: I live pretty close to the Powell BART station too, so we can meet any tunnel people near there if we need to.

If adding one more (new tag along) person helps push things closer to a go, i'm in. I've been swamped with work, meant to meet up with karmical at Nickies the past two weeks thinking that would probably end in a ride of some sort, maybe thonight...

so, if I can ride from the TL to Sausalito and back, 22 miles round trip (it was at the north end of Sausalito), rode the whole thing, no walking uphill, I can probably keep up, no?
