English racer?

As I was taking my bike into our office, an Environmental Services gentleman stopped in the hall when he saw my bike and said, "Ah nice, an English racer."  So I stopped and chatted with him a bit.  I guess he called it an English racer because it has skinny tires, chrome fenders, and drop handlebars.  He had a Mongoose.  He was happy to report that after switching to hybrid tires, his ride was much easier, but probably not as fast as my bike.  I said, "Hey, as long as you're having fun, that's all that matters."

This weekend: I may be up for an early Shabbos ride.  It depends on the trail conditions.  "What's that?" you say?  Why would mountain bike trails have an effect on a road ride?  Well I'm officiating for this weekend's Psycowpath River City Shootout at Swanson park.  If the trail is too muddy after today's rain, they will postpone the race till Sunday.  Unfortunately, that call will be made tonight sometime.  So I won't know about the weekend's plans till.......well, this weekend.

If the race is tomorrow, I'd like to ride on Sunday in the afternoon.  Or in the morning.  Whenever.

If the race is Sunday, I'd like to be done with the Saturday ride earlier in the day - by about noon?

Well, Erin has to work all weekend So I can make it whatever is decided. I think I am ready for just about whatever ride you want to do... that's right... Two dragons...

Looks like, with the rain ending now, I'll be doing the officiating on Saturday. I won't be done with that event till probably 4pm. So no Shabbos ride for me at least. Unless I can count the ride to and from Jonny's to play COD a Shabbos evening ride?!? Jonny, is that the plan?

Sunday will be a ride day though. Looks to be fairly nice out, especially in the afternoon.

Let us make plans soon!

Saturday night COD night? whatever, I can be down... Just give me a ring and let me know the time. I'll probably try to get out in the morn for a few hours.

Lets see your going to be at the park, bring your bike and do your ride at Swanson. you can even pick up some tape on your ride.

What do you guys (Jonny and Mr. Miles) think about 1pm Shabbos +1 ride?

You guys both live close, so we could figure out a meeting place where I could join you and we could take off NW from there. I'll post once we have a consensus.

Gentlemen, I'm out. I've been told tomorrow is time to babyproof the new kitchen and get things ready for the movers to pack. Yeah, getting things ready to pack sounds weird to me too...

munsoned said...

Alright Mike. Have fun with your amazing explosive baby.

Jonny and I are probably heading out about 8am or 9am. Not sure if I'll check the blog in the morning before I head out. But I might.

Hey Kev, got you number. I'll give you a call if we're in the area. Jonny and I plan on riding somewhere at about 8am, so we might swing down that way to meet up with you guys.
