    Minneapolis Sat Night Pre-Ride?

    We doing this again? 6-6:30ish, Hard Times? St. Paul might be a good destination again, especially if we can meet with some of the riders out there to have a bigger group coming back. Maybe leave a little earlier so we're not so rushed wherever we stop as a turn around point?

    I don't think there really is one... You should be able to keep up a decent speed probably. That's usually all that we ask for.

    I ride 48x18 and spin comfortably on the flats up to about 100rpm (somwhere around 21mph)... think I'd be able to keep up?

    I'll be wearing Carharts, black burley jacket and a black BMX helmet. Since I don't know who else will make it out I can't say about anyone else, except if you see a guy with brown dreds down to the middle of his back sitting with a bunch of crusty bikers, that's probably Rattking, and that's probably us... But I don't know if he'll be there, so that doesn't really help...

    Why am I posting this? I'm no help at all...

    I do believe I'll be ready to rock tommorrow.

    Black/yellow facesucker helmet (y'know, the typical roade style helmet), black t-shirt and green pants cut off below the knee. Typical bike hipster gear.

    How about we just have our helmets openly displayed on the table?

    Maybe we can get enough people out that putting the helmets on the tables would mean we had nowhere to put our coffee?

    Trystero - where are you? Should we meet you somewhere in St. Paul and all ride back to the Dinkytown McDonald's?

    Sounds good to me. Additionally, if one person were entirely naked it would help.

    I totally forgot what I was going to say.

    I'll be there. Just trying to wake up. I was at my almost-girlfriend's house until 4:30am. Ha!

    I'll be down for next weekend. I have too much on the plate this weekend. I just got the GTB running, and took a spin out on her. I had fun with a geared bike. He pulled I pulled, it was sick for about five miles, then he dogged my a55 creeping his bike up a couple gears I was going all out and trying to stay on his wheel, but traffic, and peds on the bike path just made it unwise to be doing what we were doing in the first place. I'm sunburned as well.
    Any apres Saturday night, get the cobwebs out ride planned for Sunday? Remember to set the clock forward.

    Fortune cookies? Huh?

    According to Rattking's GPS, he had 38 miles from Hard Times to his home in NE. That's a good thing, seeing as how the regular ride only did maybe seven miles.

    I got some totally bad directions to the hard times from my roommate and ended up wandering around uptown. Do you guys do weekly saturday night rides, or is it a sporadic thing?

    is the site that made that image.. there are a few different maps you can choose from and tons of options...
    some cities have hi res color maps.. sadly mpls is not one of them yet..

    sober folk taking over the Sat night ride? NEVER! expect a beer bottle to the spokes

    HereNT if you want i can send the gps track log to you so you can make the map however works best for printing

    I'll check it out at work today and see what I can get. I've been trying to get pics of the ride up on my blog, but blogger hates me today. I'll post them here instead in a few.

    BTW rattking - give my brother a call. He has the day off and a shop in the basement with all the tools you need to get that new frame up and running. You just have to figure out how to get the frame over there...
