Flock ride, Friday 9-23
I asked a few of my co-workers and friends as well, their excuse is they don’t ride in the rain.
I plan to be there….. Bike is in town with me, I have extra blinkies and lights, I think I am good to go. Yay!
I’ll be there… Will there be enough bike parking for everyone?
re-injured ankle, can’t come.
really tired of “healing”. most. boring. activity. ever.
You take care of that ankle… ill take care of your beer. 8-]
@ejwme – Ugh. That sucks – for you because you miss the ride (obviously), and for me because you were supposed to regale me with tales of bassoonery.
So are we still riding even if it rains? I got awesome new rain gear so I’m in no matter what.
rzod – raincheck. It’ll give me more time to think back to all the horrible double reed jokes that I’m not allowed to tell anymore
this was a great little ride, got home relatively early and everything!
This ride was a great stress reliever after the week I’ve had, haha!
I agree this was a great ride. Thank you to all the Flock staff who make this possible.
I had a good conversation with Nick about the Flock and how the funding works and why the need help. We as a bike community really need to help support theses Flock rides.
Great ride! Thanks to Nick and Jane and Kayla and everyone else who works to put these on.
Fantastic Ride. Perfect ending for a great week (cycling wise) Good beer, Good Burgers, Good friends, good music, and pretty girls. Can’t wait for the rides to start again!!
Even Enjoyed the ride home to East Pittsburgh (thru Braddock) the night was a total success as far as I’m concerned.
I also agree with Mr Marv. We really need to support Flock of Cycles in Every Way we can.
good times. good food. good people. and noah made his return! i saw the pudding after i got home.
Who was the other group cyclist that were in friendship park?
I had a great time. All told, I put 40 miles under me yesterday. Bike to Flock, Flock itself, then from OTB up into Highland Park for another little party, then a 33-minute scream from Negley/Stanton area into Downtown via zoo, Butler, Penn. Not once did I have a problem with traffic or surly drivers. *This* is what biking all over is all about.
that was me who shouted at you near the greyound stu. i wondered where the hell you were coming from
Forgot to buy a Flock shirt for myself and the Mrs. I guess I’ll have to wait till next spring to get them.
BTW someone said my lights were so bright they gave them a headache, I’ll bring dimmer ones next time.
Even though I didn’t get to do the ride, it was nice to catch-up with the Flock at the OTB! Good times!
I was completely exhausted, but it was well-worth it to be there!
Mr Marv, those lights were amazing!!! what kind were they I just have cheap ones I got at walmart and have been thinking about an upgrade
@ dbacklover this is my head light http://www.exposurelights.com/product/000074/maxx-d-mk.4/ and this is my tail light http://store.dinottelighting.com/shared/StoreFront/default.asp?CS=dinotte&StoreType=BtoC&Count1=511455714&Count2=428596138&ProductID=91&Target=products.asp
@ dbacklover I also really like your personal blog it is very inspiring.
@Mr Marv Thanks, i try to be very honest about how I feel about biking, and being a giant. Because of my weight I end up dealing with some things that most cyclist never give much thought. Also the fact that i would be either dead or on my way there if it wasn’t for that Big Orange Bike (I call him BOB) of mine.
I meet a lot of people who either have decided or been taught that they cant do it. That they could never ride there bike (if they even have one) to the store (forget commuting to work) and the whole time here I am proving that you can indeed do all that.
sorry to go off on a rant but these past few weeks it seems I have been surround by people who “Can’t” and I just want to scream at them. “It’s not CAN’T it’s Won’t, or “Don’t want to”, or “Not worth it” but trust me it isn’t CAN’T”
ok I’m done.. but I do feel a new blog post coming on.
You go, Dback, just keep doing it. No need to scream at people, just know that your presence, your existence, will be the nagging little voice in somebody’s mental box of excuses that they can’t, or won’t, do something. As surely as a person can’t un-know something, that little voice will just keeps calling “bullshit”.
