Riding is good

As Jesse would say "I done some bike practice over the weekend" was all good. First race of the year finally coming up...I'm not ready too race but plenty ready to ride:) Not much to talk about...couple projects...one done...one close. Riding in tomorrow:)

Built Teri up a Townie....had everything but the fenders:) Raleigh Marathon. Townie now has Mary bars.....yummy:)

needed the top tube of this old Raleigh for the Tall Bike build...

getting close....another 30 minutes and this beast will be rideable:)

Peace


rides like a tall bike....

I almost caused an accident from mates rubber necking me with that WTF look on their faces:) Too much fun.

holy crap, your going to have to recruit Brian Abbott to ride that thing. I saw you welding that in your garage today, I yelled but you were hard at it!!

Fucking cool. I saw a number of those at Burning Man last year. Is Izzy feeling better?

Squirrel said...

Basso, you should have stopped for a minute:)

Rick, Izzy is good, did the doctor thing Monday 2 bottles medicine along with the inebulizer.

A sick Izzy 'splains you not joining us on Sunday. Glad that she's feeling better. I assume some respiratory thing if she's on a nebulizer?

Squirrel said...

I plan on it, have to talk with Teri first though. I called ya early but no answer....

jason said...

yeah, my phone was out in my bike in the garage... and still is, dammit. woke to lightning a few times from 5:00 to 5:30, and finally decided to just drive. I'm definitely riding tomorrow, so I'll hang at the bridge around 5:50... starting getting light yesterday while at the bridge. sweet.

You bringing Teri down to Ritual tomorrow night or letting her fend for herself? If she's not coming down and the taco ride is on, I may shoot over and do that instead.

Squirrel said...

taco ride is on, we'll be riding black label:) If you want training miles do Ritual, if you want to practice drinking some beers and riding your bike do the Taco ride:)

Jason I'll see you in the morning:)

Peace

nice work man..i want to see you on the tall bike at the taco ride...you making it fixed or just rocking it minus brakes?

Buckshot77 said...

I'll wait until taco hits the offroad again.

Squirrel said...

had too ride without brakes lastnight as I was jonesing for a trial run:) No fixed just yet....brakes will be on tonight. Most definately riding it on the taco ride though.

Peace

Ryan said...

Rarely am I an optimist about trail conditions, but I think Center may be OK tomorrow...

Squirrel said...

the amount of water I saw on my way in today that was lying in ditches "running with current" would have me not being an optimist.

But I'll be there either way.

Peace

Nice work.
