The other day I was all “one more post of random garbage!” and then everybody was all “sweet!“, but then today I’m all “just kidding!” and everybody’s all “zzzzzzzzz!“
Oh, and you know what else is super lame? Not lame like, people who fight dogs, or the end of the world, or anything, but lame for the consistency of the day to day of this site, is I will be gone on Friday will resume posting on Wednesday the 11th.
I can’t say where I will be, but rest assured, it will be far away and not near a computer.
So with that, let’s get down to the biz.
First up, a few years ago everyone’s big buddy, Steve P. had a hairnet birthday ride. I liked this idea a lot, and savored the concept like a gigantic throat lozenge until just a couple of days ago when I decided that I would ‘organize’ (make a flyer and probably show up to) my own celebration of all things concussion and/or coma oriented;
This could be epic, or it could be a total bust, or maybe will fall somewhere in-between.
If you might remember, the last ride I organized back in 2008 was one in recognition for J.P.H.N.H.’s first book and happened to land on the one weekend day during that particular February where it rained biblically for twelve straight hours;
I can guarantee with one thousand percent certainty that had the ride not been thrown in Joe’s honor, there’s not a even slight chance in Hell that he would have shown up;
Anyhow, assuming that it rains or even if it doesn’t, please accept this invitation to join me in partaking in an array of front roads and back roads, some of which are paved and some of which are not in and around the hills of the Eastern Bay on October 19th.
And please note, that unless you’re an asshole, this will be a no drop ride.
Thank you for your time and consideration on this matter.
In other news, Ruckus Components has apparently solved that which was previously thought to be unsolvable and for only $32.50, finally brought to the market a way to carry at least four of your keys;
Next you’ll tell me that there’s some way to drink juice besides out of my hands.
Then from Matt I got notification that there’s a thing happening in a place called ‘Winnipeg‘, which if I recall correctly is near the Carolinas;
Appreciate it if you’d let be known that if folks know where Winnipeg is, we’d love to have them on Saturday;
Cyclocross under lights at a dirt track speedway – check. Beer garden – check. Great band and djs – check, check.
This ‘cyclocross’ that Matt speaks of has become very popular in recent years. If you reside near this Winnipeg that Matt speaks of, you should get to this event on Saturday and see what all the kids have been going apeshit for.
And speaking of which, Brent sent in a promo video for a thing they have happening in Birmingham;
Thought I’d share a pretty from fellow redneck Nay. He’s pretty good with a camera and puter.
I’ve been to Birmingham once, and two things I noted is that the women were astonishingly attractive and the men all looked kinda doughy. Of course at the time I was hanging out with a bunch of muckity mucks who liked to play golf and talk about money, so I realize it’s not a super fair assessment.
Anyhoo, the Bamacrossers have been at this nonsense for a spell, so I would suspect that at this point they probably know a thing or two about a thing or two and would be happier ‘en a Junebug to share it with anyone who’d like to attend.
In recent days we’ve discussed the imminent meltdowns known as Interbike, and more importantly, Underbike;
But we have another item of note that was sent to me from Western Spirit’s impresario of cool, Mark Sevenoff, or for those who’ve had the misfortune of seeing him naked, ‘Sevie‘;
Outerbike is one month away.
Gimmee sum lovin.”
Was that loving enough?
Yessireebob, that Outerbike sounds like a fine time indeed, and if I wasn’t so committed to spending that block of time hiding beneath my bed, I’d be there with GoPros strapped all over my helmet getting rad with the rest of the beautiful people.
