Steven, Duke, James, Albert, Shaun, Josh and I cycled in uber gusty conditions. We went to the village to check out David’s new bike and saw his tire/fork sizing dilemma, tested the ice at the pond, braved the open prairie wind and glided to Grumpy’s. We were joined at the clubhouse by Tom, Giles and David where minutes include: no cop = no stop, hot-shots keep kids happy in winter, Duke upped the jerk factor and brought some of his home-made corned beef which we enjoyed with rye bread and mustard (yaa), clubhouse management has moved Wing Night to Thursdays (yaa), Giles made friends by ordering wings and beer for everybody (yaa), the Ron Swanson drink, ABES cookbook ideas, Power Tap wheel rentals ($50/week), Crackle Cross, Tom is dealing with the Russian mafia to bring back weekly meat draws – proceeds to benefit the local cycling community, David and Shaun are ready for Glutton Cross, “I can’t tell if you’re really dumb or really smart?”, Field of Dreams/#badidea, Crystal Gravy, zoo sex, and David is making bacon-infused whiskey. Good times. Pictures will be probably be posted soon - ish - maybe. JS
Reminder: If you were going to get a winter jersey, contact Paul DB Krahn and place an order before the end of the weekend.
