I just wanted to send an invite to all in the Atlanta area to come to Melton's at the Scott Blvd, N. Decatur Rd, and Medlock Rd intersection and ride Tuesday at 6:30. This week's promises to be really cool-- literally-- ride. Just remember, we require helmets and lights.

BTW I will be on my FS mountain bike, so I will be even slower than I normally am.

Thanks,
Tommy

Anyone - other than me - riding the mountain moonshine festival bike ride up in Dawsonville on Saturday? I can't find any online info but they have multiple routes ranging from 20 miles to 62 miles. I've never ridden the course. I hear it's rolling but not too hard on the climbing.

Wow, I feel like I'm late for the party. I love the App&Tapp ride but am stuck in the bike mine till 7:00 Would anyone be interested in starting a somewhat regular ride on sunday mornings? Something SS/FG/Vintage friendly perhaps?

I plan on doing some decent mileage on my ss/fixie in nov, so let me know if you get something going.

I will probably need to lower my SS gear to like 16 or something, I think it's a 20 now and it's driving me crazy. My fixed is 16 now....I just got it, and the guy who owned it before me switched out all the cogs, so I gotta figure it out. I think the chainring is 48 and the cranks are 170s

Dang, I can't believe I missed this thread!

(It's not 85 degrees anymore, is it? )

I can't believe there are so many from the ATL here. We're really a great bunch of folks!

In this day and age, that little phrase could be a bit scary.

I'm late as well, but would definately be down for a Sunday Morning ride. I primarily ride a fixie but own a couple of geared bikes as well. Also, if anybody needs a teammate for the Faster Mustache race PM me. I'd be glad to meet up for a beer and a ride before hand to make sure we are, you know, compatible as they say....

I'll be out this sunday morning (10/29) fleshing out a route. If anyone cares to join me we could meet up at the coffee shop next to Bicycle South around 9:30 or 10ish. The route in my head goes from the shop through Emory to Chandler park, cut through Kirkwood to Oakhurst, pass the seminary then tack on the freight room route from Katie Kerr (?). I will be on a fixie, bearded and wool jerseyed

Josh, I may join you on Sunday. I need to dust off the Surly after being on the geared bike so much recently.

Hi Rachel, nice to see you on the thread. Hi LittleBigMan, I met you on an afternoon commute a while ago.

Anyone riding to CM from the Decatur area tomorrow night? Map Tester??

Holy #$&@. October sure went by fast and now it's CM time again.
I wish they'd do CM on another night. I'm (almost) always tired by Friday night.
Stay dry.

WooHoo! The ride in this morning was fun! Ron, I know you especially enjoy riding in this weather. Hope all who are so inclined can make it to Atlanta's first wet CM in over a year!

Embrace the rain! (I love ride-induced endorphins )

There's no such thing as bad weather, only the wrong clothing.

Ok, now on to a new "subject".

Anyone have extra gear, summer or winter, mtn or road, bike parts, etc?
How about if we meet for a swap fest and eats afterward? No, I'm not paying for the eats.

I feel special that I'm even later to the party than both Josh and Rachael. I usually show up way too early.
I'm glad we now have a place on here to let local people know about local crap.

By the way,

About 20 people showed up. Mostly MACC riders. Everyone seemed to have fun kicking their own a$$es though. I've got about 60 route maps left over if anyone wants one. I'm thinking of selling them on e-bay. People pay for stupid crap on there all the time.

Can be vintage or usable.
Since neither of my bikes is vintage, I'm interested in usable.
Not sure where we could meet. Anyone have ideas? I guess it should be near a decent eating establishment.
