Due to many of our lady friends heading to Cuyuna Thursday night, we’ll ride on Wednesday (and Thursday if you can).

Wednesday - meet at 6:30 for another trip to the hills with the knobby tire club.

A post ride fire would be nice - anyone?

Thursday  - skinny tire club will meet at 8:00. The Barn has been cancelled for this week.

This Thursday we’ll use the knobby tires and go mountain biking (and celebrate PK’s 51st birthday).  Meet at ABES headquarters at 6:30 and we’ll load up the bikes and head for the hills.  

If you’re not ready for the hills, meet at 8 for a rip around town.

Reminder...next week’s Thursday Night Ride will take place on Wednesday.

The latest from Danny MacAskillz...

Congrats to Paul and Franklin who raced the Spring Chicken road race last Saturday.  PK rode to a strong second place finish but was unable to close the gap against GFnS.  Well done Paul!  Unforch, Frankie fell ill for the race and sprinted to a DNF.  Bummer.

Weekend cycling plans will be discussed - see you at 8.

Dwight N recently saw this in Calgary...

A sweet benefit of cycling as transportation is the deluxe parking.  I love riding my bike to the front door, jumping off and walking right in.  Rock star parking.  I especially love that in Altona we can do it without locking up.  How f'n awesome is that!  These are the good old days.

See you at 8.

Dan, Albert and I scouted out the creek tonight and it was de-luxe.  Let's give it a go on Thursday and see if Franky can make it out of town this week or he'll have to take another brisk walk.  Good luck buddy!
See ya'll at 8.

RIP Abe Vigoda.  For realsies this time.
