Hellos everyone

Haven't been here for a while.
Well, I'm going to SART with my dad today.
If you see me there holler.
I'll be riding a fixed gear (silver)
And dad will be riding the carbon bike (purple and carbon)

Have a good ride! Good thing your dad's riding with you as persons under 18 are not allowed on a fixed gear unless accompanied by an adult. And don't forget your helmet. (helmet and fixed gear laws)

Are you serious? I haven't been on a fixed since I was 12 years old, and certainly wasn't riding with any adults. Didn't need any pansy brakes back then

Have a good ride Max!

When we were growing up we were much tougher back then....and there were no such thing as bicycle helmets. I think a few of us even rode brakeless fixies, and no helmets, of course.....

I was just kidding Max about the fixed gear law....

I think I've mentioned this story before. When I was a kid around 11 yo, my friend and I exchanged bikes for 1 fun ride. I rode his fixed gear bmx without hand brakes and tried stopping on an incline ramp... bad mistake.

Have fun, Max!

So that was you I saw out there. Wasn't sure cause you were alone and sitting on the side of the road. I nodded just incase it was you. At first I wasn't sure as you look taller and thin like a cyclist. Then I saw your dad far behind, then realized it was you schoolin' your dad on the bike!

Yes it was me. Hi Mr. Beanz.

We ate at Krispy Kremes on the way home.
He was really tired, and it was hot outside, and we forgot to bring water.
But we had a good time anyway. We went down to that rest stop place that looks like a UFO from the trail, had a drink. I tried to catch squirrils, but they ran to dam fast. We got to the beach and went back.
