Thursday Night Ride Report

Ben, Chaz, James, Steven, Gavin, Shaun, Duke and I rode on the first really cold Thursday Night Ride of winter.  It was one of the more playful rides that we’ve had in a long time.  Riding over snow piles, cutting through drifts, swerving on off-camber slopes, and knockdowns that escalated to included hand play - it was good fun but we quit before it got ugly.  It was a fun night of playing.  Eventually we found our way to the clubhouse where we were joined by Tom, and Thomas. the minutes include: Tom’s commie playing cards with slogans like “Submit to rigorous military training!”, Sunday’s cross race venue ideas, a one lap cross race?!, getting the snip stories, punk bikers, Laz-e-boy on skiis, Manitoba paranoia with weather, Hilarious House of Frankenstein, Chad Vader, haircut names, Steven windsurfing across the fields on an ironing board from MCC, Thomas is not a hipster, Princess Margaret School (PMS mascots), converting/raping, locked up abroad V locked up a broad, Death Star cafeteria, Duke remenisced about his La Paz Bolivia prison tour - no mas pujol, Bruce is teaching the local Brigades how to unicycle, notable song from the jukebox: Run DMC – It’s like that.  Steve stumbled in after the Jets game, and as most people were getting ready to leave, DSwank rolled in and enjoyed a few rounds with the remaining enthusiasts.  Good times.
I think everybody fell at least once

I miss that wanker


Gavin and Steve were the most daring

Next up: We’ll see how far south we can ride Buffalo creek - Saturday, 9:30 at my place.  Confirm your attendance with a comment or phone call.  Is anybody able to drive us home or away?


  1. Johnny,
    I'll be coaching Jackrabbits XC skiing after all so I won't be able to make it. Apparently, there is enough snow on one open area at Burwalde Woods to attempt to run the kids program tomorrow morning. I'll catch up with you guys at the MOTOX track on Sontag.
