Let's ride our bikes tonight. Let's say...8 PM? At J's place? Sounds like a plan.

Steven rocked the Back 40 and completed the 5 lap race in excellent time.   Franklin, Jon MK and Alberto also waved the ABES flag in Morden and did us proud - well done boys!

See you Thursday.

I hope you saw the women road race at the Olympics because it was bad ass.

See you at 8 to discuss bike, beer and beer tent related business.

A lot of ABES were away on vaca last week.  Let's gather and share stories of living the good life.  

This dude is not living the good life.

See you at 8.

Ride is on! J won't be home but let's ride from his place anyways. Pretty sure the doors open and he won't mind us helping ourselves to the fridge contents.

And the winner is...

these guys!

The ABES 4 man team of Paul, Steven, Franklin and Gavin impressed and/or annoyed all the right people at the 24 hour race last weekend.  After outpacing fast lap times with DRR for twelve hours, the DRR team stopped for the night to rest by the fire, beer-hydrate and get a good nights sleep (give up).  The ABES could have settled for a gimme win but they had a plan and they stuck to it.  They raced all night and finished at noon with 39 laps.  Their determination was inspiring - well done boys!  Franklin put in a good effort too, almost racing as much as the rest of his team - good helping Franky!

Team White Russians (my cycling/drinking team) took third place in the 4 man race (mumble outofthreeteams cough), and Albert raced every lap on a numerous configuration of bike bits.  Cheryl and Mia put in 6 and 3 laps respectively and made me proud.

Big-time props to David U, KK, Darryl NB and team DRR for putting on a sweet race.

ThNR - on - see you at 8.

24 Hours of Falcon

Team ABES were unable to get to the 24 hours of Falcon party last year.  Shitty for us.  After some new and improved head shaking, we'll be there.  This year our 4 man team - Gavin, Franklin, Paul and Steve are capable of kicking some ass.  

Cheryl and I might compete on a tandem...

Double your pleasure, double your fun (like in the commercial but better)

Cayenne delivered on the good times like we knew it would.  

Jon M showed up and started hopping around the place...

Gavin loves the red so much he rolled in it like a very happy piggy.

And so concludes my entire collection of the ABES family weekend and they were both given to me by Albert.  Thanks Buddy!

We'll talk about the goodness this Thursday.  See you at 8.

Many ABES families will be heading to Cuyuna but there are those that will get to enjoy a cycle around town followed by some deep fried goodies at Dan K's.

See you at 8.  

See the rest of y'all in Cuyuna on Friday.
