ThNR Report

Last night we spent 3 hours exploring buffalo creek which meant we were riding slow, clenching our butts, seeking relief on snow-packed sections, trudging through reeds, sipping on scotch and jagg, grinnin’ like idjits, and noodling our way for 27 km’s of frozen bliss.  It was certainly the longest ThNR and quite possibly the best.  We were all slipping but mostly able to hold ourselves upright; Franky took the title with the most and the loudest crashes – congratulations buddy!  We unknowingly dropped Pastor Ben (forgive us our sin(s) and David, who got so mad he spit beer all over Paul at the clubhouse (forgive him Paul). 

I didn’t take any picture (it’s dark, cold, everybody has reflective clothing, and I’m running out of excuses for saying I’m lazy) but here are some pics for the archives…

I had a super weekend – thanks for asking.  It included family movie night, pig slaughtering, cycling on buffalo creek, community theatre, friends, family, and ample amounts of food and drinks.  I’m still smiling about it all – especially riding bike on buffalo creek (that and the Jagermeister).  This is one of the best times of the year when the creek is frozen and the snow hasn’t built up enough to block the narrow passageways.  The new terrain is such a welcomed break from the same boring roads we see every bloody day of the year.  If all goes well this Thursday, we'll go down to the creek to sniff out what's what.

Here is my latest find from the MCC store.  An aerial photo of of the RM of Rhineland.

Friday Night Video

The creek was hellaslippery last night.  It's also one of the coolest thing you can do around here on your bike.  I highly recommend it.

Buffalo Creek is ready to ride.  Let's do it.  See you at 8.

The following video is not cycling related but does demonstrate how boss I used to drive my toy cars when I was a kid.

Remember when we used to have alley cat races?  Well, Franklin does - that's why he's planning an alley cat race for our Thursday Night Ride.  How sweet is that?!
