There is no such thing as too much flocking

With the five Fridays this month, we are left with an odd flock-free Friday. We all know a week without flocking makes everyone antsy, so lets Flock to BBQ again!

Meet at Dippy for a short ride to Doublewide Grill on the Southside for from veg/vegan friendly BBQ.

What better that food, friends, and bikes? (Beer?… they have that.)

DoubleWide is prettyyyy good..I’ll be riding from a block away, to Oakland, to ride back…Haha.What will the route be? I think we should ride into the city if that’s a possibility? Well, at least a little bit longer ride than just heading over Birminham and done.

Cpollaack: Seconded. I’m down for a longer ride before or after.

Hopefully not after. Barf is not a good accent for my bike.

#

I vote before..haha.Maybe down to the Point? I plan on having a few beers and relaxing..always good after a fun ride.

a long ride before is great for working up a nice hungry. a long ride after is great for working up what you already ate. HORF!


stefb
Participant
#

aww i vote for after. work schedule definitely doesn’t permit an earlier ride.

i may be strange, but i do better riding/exercising after i eat. even a big meal. i would be down for continuing a ride afterwards for anyone else who can’t make it beforehand.

what if the ride were at 6 stef?


stefb
Participant
#

yeah. i thought that maybe people were gonna meet at 4 or 5 and then flock from oakland around 6.


Noah Mustion

#

nah it looks like you’ll be good to go.. see ya then

the news is saying rain. hoping that it clears up just in time just like it did last week. it’s been too rainy this year.

Stef, for what it’s worth, I don’t trust the accuracy of weather forecasts unless we’re talking about a sub-24 hour time-frame. Too many times in the past I’ve expected X day to be a washout and is ended up being fine and vice versa.

^^THIS.

It’s been especially inaccurate all week. Monday I bussed to work cause it forecast rain, which didn’t happen. So yesterday I biked despite rain forecast all day…. nothing!

On the other hand… they called for rain last night, and it rained (did Team Decaf anyway – it’s just water, right?)

i totally forgot that i will be at 7 springs getting the new brakes on my dh bike dialed in for racing saturday. probably wont make it back into town until 8:30-9. think you guys will still be riding then?


dwillen
Participant
#

We will probably be noming then.


cburch

#

i might have to call stef and have her order me food and just meet you guys there then. if i park a couple blocks away and ride my v10 over it will be the equivalent of riding my road bike from dippy anyway.

Ready for another Flock, the back of my modified Flock shirt, iron on letters by Honus Wagner sporting goods, Forbes ave. downtown, 50c/letter, $1/number.

now I have to make sure I don’t make any enemies.

stef – you’re not strange, I ride equally well on an empty or full stomach, its never made me ill.


dwillen
Participant
#

I can cruise around on a full stomach no problem. If I try biking up mount washington after 5 pounds of ribs, you can bet there’ll be 5 lbs of mess on the sidewalk about 1/3rd the way up.

Edmonds, that is the most awesome thing I’ve seen all day.

How much are Flock shirts anyway? Did I hear $20?


dwillen
Participant
#

The one pictured there is a wicking fabric and was $20. Chances for one of those are long gone, but I just placed an order for more cotton ones (american apparel t-shirts) and those are $10 each. I’ll have plenty of them next Friday.


CPollack

#

I will probably try to buy one if i remember..And copy Edmonds to the fullest.Haha!

Our reservations are for 8pm, so expect a short ride before eating. Please RSVP on the facebook event (if you can) so we have a better idea of how many are in the reservation.

Also, bring some cash (small bills) to pay for your meal so we don’t have to split the check 15 ways.


CPollack

#

Yes, i will probably get FYB on my FOC shirt..haha.

Says 30% chance of precipitation right now, looking good.

Are we rolling out at 6 or meeting at 6?


msprout
Participant
#

Regardless, I’ll be there at 6. It takes me a little bit to get home from the Strip and get up to Dippy. So don’t leave without me. :D


Noah Mustion

#

Says 40% during the ride but if it’s anything like it’s been all week, that will mean diddly-squat


Noah Mustion
Participant
#

…guess I was right. gone down to about 10% chance of precip tonight. enough to bust out the ‘sunny’ icon


robjdlc
Participant
#

I’ll be there at 6 as well.


stefb
Participant
#

I may be there shortly after 6
