ABES Bulletin

Grass track racing was a bust/awesome.  By the time we cycled to Franky’s, started the fire, arranged the lawn chairs and couch, and had a pre-race smoke, it was too dark to race – dang (yaa!).  
As the evening went on, things only got better and better - until they got worse.  Good times.  

This Thursday we’ll return to the hills and thrills of the moto-cross track. 
See you at 8.

From the desk of Franky...
Hey guys, this Saturday at 9, meet at Johnny's for the Aa100.  Bring your passports, 20 to 30 dollars American, cross bike and a water bottle. the stops will be many, the pace will be moderate and the food will be auto fried. The route is mostly paved, with a bit of gravel and 10 miles of dirt.
See you there!

See you at 8.

I've upped my bad habits lately - three weeks of vacation gave me a lot of time to do some good/bad things.  Time to pay for it.

Amsterdam then and now.  Love it.

Road ride?  Gravel ride?  Or should we ride some laps at the motocross/mountain bike park?  State your druthers brothers.  See you at 8.

ThNR Bulletin

This week we’ll enjoy a slow ride – double-penny-farthing-with-a-ridiculously-dangerous-baby-carrier slow.  Possibly sit in the garage and watch the rain, slow.  

See you at 8.

We’re all hoping that Tom finally gets his bike so he can show us something shiny and new this week.  If not, we may return for another care-frontation to lure him out.  Or maybe we’ll join him in his garage for some slow ride fun.

Albert competed in the Provincial Road Races this past Sunday taking home the bronze medal and the award for the best jean shorts!  We all heart you Albert!

Shaun is asking for ideas for the clubhouse projector shows ie. cycling race highlights, plays of the year, the 1990 Grey Cup game, nut-shot compilations, etc.  Post a comment to let him know what’cha want.

Who’s going to the 24 hours of Bike Party this weekend?  What's not to like?!  The DRR crew put in a boatload of work last weekend to make the trails even sweeter, the cycling enthusiasm ranges somewhere between Lisa Gagne and Team White Russians, the merch wagon is delivering 24 hours of trucker hats, and the Saturday night dog fest is awesome because dog fest!  I’ve never missed it.  Unfoo-orch, I’m out this year – stupid parents stupid 60 year stupid anniversary.

In two weeks (July 26 to be exact) the Back 40 mountain bike race will be presented by our cycling neighbours to the West.  Country Cycle and Tinker Creek Cycle are putting on a sweet race that is not to be missed.  Unfoo-orch I’m out for this one too – stupid vacation with stupid friends and stupid family.

Thursday Ride?

A large contingent of the regular Thursday crew will be off in Minnesota this Thursday but those interested in riding should gather at, let's say, 8 PM? Regular driveway?  The Barn, unfortunately, will not be available this week. Grumpy's would love to take your money though.

Pre-ride team building exercise!
I need 5 dudes to help me move a piano down two steps.  
You will be rewarded with cold beer.

Things I'm looking forward to these days: hearing about the team time trial race, sampling popcorn at the new clubhouse, and of course - the ABES family bike trip.  
So much goodness!  See you at 8.  JS

ThNR - Wednesday Edition

The Athena bike club is having their super-happy-good-times getaway this weekend and will be leaving Thursday afternoon.  This does not bode well for our Thursday night tradition, hence we’re moving our ride to Wednesday night.  Post ride fun and games will be at the ABES barn.
