Trail on the 395

(click sign for pictures)
Yesterday was one of the rare daytime rides of the FBC. Rarer yet is the 11:00 a.m. start time. I was pleasantly surprised to have a turnout of about 25 or 30 riders.

Taking the Centennial Trail as far as we could, we had to continue on streets to get to the trail head North of Francis and Freya. From there, the trail was not your typical rail trail. There were turns and climbs that made the trip all the way out there more fun. Though we did get free hot dogs and a bottle of water, I don't think they expected everyone to be so thirsty because they ran out of water about an hour into the thing. The car show was cool and being able to hang out in the middle of the interstate was fun. As far as the ceremony, it was your typical flatbed of politicians where everyone said that they were going to make it short and went on to congratulate themselves on a job well done for the next fifteen minutes. Thanks to Skip for our pizza and beer at Pacific Pizza. I don't think I would have made it up the hill without it.


I was in the store a few days ago buying paste, a Trapper Keeper and some scratch-n-sniff stickers when I realize it is time for the Back To School Ride. Along with a dope ass theme ride, we will also be able to enjoy drink specials and a rock show at our destination bar.

So get those band uniforms, cheerleader skirts or your plaid out of the closet. If you are one of those that needs a new outfit for the first day of school, get down to your favorite thrift store and stimulate that economy 50 cents at a time. You've got just under two weeks to get some school shopping done. This will be the 27th Fiasco and it will take place on Friday September 4, 2009 at 8:00p.m. As usual, we will meet at The Swamp. Put it on your calendar.
