"The Knave" M.I.A. for 3+ weeks now!

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

"The Knave" M.I.A. for 3+ weeks now!

Just back from my second training ride on the old route this week, and once again The Knave was no where in sight.

Something is wrong here.
Something is very wrong.

Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale
A tale of a fateful crit
That started on a long assed straight
Aboard some up right bikes were the Knave and Hip

The first lap was a warm up and the Knave could not be more fit
And jump right out in front of the man named Hip
The Hip got all anxious and started up an attack
And the Knave got mad and hard fought back
This went on for 3 more laps
3 more laps
The air was very still
And people stood and stared at the thrill
And soon the Knave and Hip came to the Hill
Sitting back in their seats they peddled to and froe
Through switch backs and hair pin turns it was a long row to hoe
No one was to be pulled it was the front they need
And all through the last 2 straights it had to be the front
the front indeed!
Then with a turn of one last corner the clacking started to happen
There was thunder and no one was to be caught nappin
They fought hard they fought well
Who would be the first to cross the line and to tell the tale?
And in a rage the Hip pulled his pump
And jammed it in to the Knave’s spokes and sent him to his rump
There was a huge cloud of dust
And when it cleared as the crowd watched with fear
The Knave got up and walked away without looking not even a leer
He kept on walking and no one has seen him
And all that is left?
Just the crying of Hip and his ill gotten win

Like I said in a previous thread: he's probably passed on... that or he's pining for the fjords.

Knave: See me, feel me, touch me, heal me.
See me, feel me, touch me, heal me.
See me, feel me, touch me, heal me.
See me, feel me, touch me, heal me, heal me, heal me.

Pulling you I get the wind.
Gazing at you I get the cadence.
Following you I climb the mountain.
I get excitement at your cletes!
Right behind you I see the peliton.
On you I see the persperation.
From you I get a domestique.
From you I get the food sack.
Listening to you I get the cadence.
Gazing at you I get the hand signals.
Following you I climb the mountain.
I get excitement at your cletes!

Oh man, I love that album. I even got the gold CD version. Worth every penny.

Velocity, you need to come up with a cycling version of "Join Together" for the STP.

"Join Together" for the STP.

When you hear the sound 'a comin',
Hear the roadies rollin',
I want you to join together, in the pack.
We're all movin' in a 'ticular direction,
And you'll drool at our bike collection,
I want you join together, in the pack.

Do you really think I care,
What you ride or what you wear? (Well, yes I do )
I want you join together, in the pack.
There's a million ways to crash,
Everyone gits a rash...
I want you to join togeter, in the pack.

Everybody join together
I want you to join together
Come on join together in the pack.
We need you to join together
I want you to join together
Come on join together, in the pack.

(Pete's guitar solo, along with some funky piccolo work.)

You don't have to stay
You can follow or lead the way
We want you to join together, in the pack.
We know exactly where we're goin'
And the seasons right for rollin'
We want you to join togteher, in the pack.

It's the Bling and not the Bonk
The makes the roadies roll along
We want you to join together, in the pack.
This is the biggest pack you'll find
It's as deep as it is wide
We want you to join together, in the pack.

Everybody join together,
Everybody come on,

HEY HEY HEY!!!!!

Join together in the PACK!!!

Oh weird Pastriot here is the one I worked on last night its close to yours

When you hear July a-comin',
and Hear the roadies rollin',
I want you to pace together get your head out of the sand,
We always move in a 'ticular direction,
And you'll drool at our bike collection,
I want you to set the pace and be the man.

Think again we’re OCP and we do care,
What you ride or what you wear,
I want you to set the style and be the man.

There's a million ways to crash,
And every one's a potential road rash,
Come on and hold your line and be the man.

Everybody’s pacin together, I want you to join together,
I want you to set the pace and signal with your hand,
We need you to pace together, come on and pace together,
I want you to set the pace and be the man.

You don't have to pull today,
You can follow or lead tomarrow,
I want you to ride this pace and be the man.,
We know where we're going,
But this century is growing,
I want you to cruise together with Jan.

It's the destination not the journey,
That makes the this group move and not land on a gurney,
I want you to move together with your bike what ever brand,
This is the biggest century you'll find,
It's STP baby people come from far and wide,
I want you to set the pace and be the man.,
Hey hey hey hey hey hey, well everybody pedal on.

Come on and join, join together and land in Portland,
We need you pull everybody and be the man,
Hey hey hey, come together and be the man.
