The forcast does not call for a chance of rain - it just says RAIN (25-30 mm). The ABES will stick to our regular ride no matter the weather. For those brave enough to show up at headquarters, we'll guage the situation (not The Situation) and take it from there. Maybe a few laps around town, maybe a race to the clubhouse (the 90 meter dash). Either way, it will be enjoyable.
The Hot Pursuit has been great fun to follow. Team CMU is kicking A averaging over 35 kph from White Rock to River City - amazing. Way to go team - you should feel great about all you've done (you sure showed that freaky, sick old dude, those quiter cops, and those little old ladies who's the boss (not Who's The Boss). For real yo. ABES salute you.
Their race, the Tour and an encouraging wind (and ride home) inspired me to ride to St. Malo for a dip in the lake on Sunday. Bruce is talking about an upcoming group ride to Moose Lake. ABES rule.
Up next for yours truly - 24 Hours of Falcon Lake. I'll be missing the parade, zote and bouncy castles for tenting, zote and bouncy trails. Win. A full report will be forthcoming. See you hosers on Thursday. JS
All you ABES out there, PHIL'S bike was stolen from the bar on Friday night... He asks for everybody to keep an eye out for it.....ReplyDelete
Thanks Larry. Can we get a description? Make and model? Colour?ReplyDelete
Ha,I'm so new to the club that I don't know one bike from the other......All I can tell you is it's very nice black mountain bike with hand grips coming off 90 degree's from the handle bars and pointing backwards towards him.ReplyDelete
Goddamnit! Thats horse shit. I bike around town a lot, so I'll definitely keep an eye out. I'll steal it back for you Phil if I find it. Phil also mentioned at the bar he just got 1 1/4" tires on his bike and was enjoying the results in speed.ReplyDelete
And Phil, if you need a bike to get around for a while, I've got a 20" Cinder Cone that needs some miles on it. Mind you, its got fat, aggressive tires, but you can certainly borrow it for as long as it takes.
Looking at the picture of Phil a couple posts down: Like Larry mentioned, those grips will be the defining feature. Zooming into that picture, they look like pistol grips if the handle bar was the muzzle. The bike's got red decals on the front suspension fork, red lettering on the rear of the saddle (probably a WTB?), a cyclocomputer on the right side on the bars, disc brakes, three chainrings, silver bottle cage, a small red decal on the front rim, reddish/maroon parts on the rear brake calliper on an otherwise black/dark grey bike.ReplyDelete
Well that was quick! I saw Phil at the watering hole and he got his bike back with minimal damage..... :)ReplyDelete
