Been working on my backwards riding skillz on the fixie here at work in the warehouse....need more work but I can get a full rotation of thee crank, which is a whole lot better then what I started at. I'll get it....patients my friend:) Riding home again today...gonna go the long way...ride out to roll a little gravel before hitting the cities east side:)

I know it's not Cave Lounge, how about BJ's Hitching Post?

Damn, not bad considering I wasn't old enough to go in either of those places before they closed. Now, my dad and some older friends.... that's a different story. Funny thing is, I don't even know where that building is other than on the north side somewhere over by 2nd ave.

buckshot77, that picture looks like it was taken on 6th Ave. facing NE towards the building. Squirrel is just North of the I80 bridge that goes over 6th.

Nope... BJs (from the 80's) was torn down. That BJs was the still north of this building up on a hill.

Hey what's up? This is Max from des moines. I feel like you're one of the first people who would want to be informed when a new series of alleycats and fixed gear events in Des Moines was going to be happening. Check this out and drop a post!
