    Ok, Wed is 3 days off. Knowing BFG it will take us 4 days to come up with plan for Wed, so let's get an early start. Anyone have suggestions for for route, point of interest, end point/bar, etc for this week?

    While I wasn't on the rides of yore, CSC would be much closer to me so I vote for it. That being said, Tosci's is fine.

    I suggested possible staring points in the other thread. No one latched on to CSC, but they did to Toscis, so that's why. We can certainly change it from week to week.All you white kids look alike when you're still covered in baby fat, so I was getting bored with the non-stop WASP parade.

    I think changing the location week to week will probably get confusing for folks...

    going outside now. see many of you tonight.

    So that was fun. Only took me about 20 minutes to get separated. I saw a dude took a left at a red that I thought was with us...turns out he wasn't. I took a solo ride, twas excellent. Let's do this again next week (providing you guys didn't all decide that this is a terrible idea.)
  16.  
    I'm transmittin' live from work now. Not bad for the kick-off event. We missed the rain, and had about 10 people or so show-up. Who all from BFG actually went? I remember bikes, but putting bike-to-face-to-name-to-screen-name has never been my strong point (I had the Cinelli Histogram for anyone else who has the same problem). Where did y'all go after I broke off for work? Thanks to Zomar for making it all happen.

    Who's got suggestions for next week?All you white kids look alike when you're still covered in baby fat, so I was getting bored with the non-stop WASP parade.

    yea man, for sure. I realized that we had lost you when we got down to Atlantic Ave. I was in a second group that had gotten separated at that light. I saw someone make the left, and I actually was going to turn as well, but a car was in my way and I ended up going straight. Sorry about that though.tristan - thats fucking rad dude, I'm happy for you.

    It was fun ride... I peeled off when the group that was reportedly going to Davis started heading into Arlington. How far down Mass Ave did you guys get? It also seems like we crashed a lot of reds, and I did see a cop sitting right next to one of them :| Anyway, looking forward to coming to more of these!

    I was also waylaid en route to Davis. Rode around there a bit but didn't see anyone. So Helena and I went to shay's and had beers.
    End points should definitely involve beer, in my opinion
