I Brought My Pencil

(click the card for photos)
Another remarkable turnout for a Fiasco. Even with the threat of going uphill, over one hundred riders crowded into and around The Swamp for our 49th Full Moon Fiasco.

Breaking tradition we skipped the stop at the fountain, and headed straight up the South Hill. Well, not exactly straight. We zigged over to Adams to take a less difficult, but still easy to follow route. Adams is my favorite way to get up there with the exception of a few blocks at the top. Without hundreds of riders behind you, it's easy to pick your way around the harder stuff with a half dozen right/lefts. Finding High Drive, we followed that all the way over to Hatch, 57th and finally made it to Famous Ed's at 57th and Regal.

Mark and his buddies from David's Pizza have taken over at the former Hangar 57, and have made some vast improvements. One of which is adding David's Pizza to the menu. The staff went nuts making sure everyone was served and served well. I can't thank Mark and his staff for making the Back To School Ride a success. Mark and I have some plans cooking already for upcoming rides.

As for all the Lifetime Members For Life, I was excited to see how many of you came out for a longer, uppier route. Thanks for coming out.

150+ riders; 55ยบ and remarkable.


  1. You and Mark "Rock the Casbah" Thanks for your time and effort.

  2. It was a fantastic ride! I hope we have some more rides like that the future, seeing as it _is_ a bike club and not _just_ a drinking club.

  3. I was very encouraged to find this site. I wanted to thank you for this special read. I definitely savored every little bit of it and I have you bookmarked to check out new stuff you post.
