Fast and Freezing

After a discussion, we agreed that a “fast and freezing” descent back home was better then the “slow and cold” longer way home. We wanted to get that ride over with … we got the turkey, fixins, and rather cold.

Reminder: RideCivil/Black friday—5:30 PM, Westlake Center

Friday looks like it’s going to be as nice as Thanksgiving here in Seattle, brisk but clear, a great day for an evening ride!

The media climate is shaping up as well: check out this recent SeattlePI letter to the editor criticizing Critical Mass. I’m not 100% down with Mr. Dudley, but I definitely am down with having a down-town ride that’s a bit more integrated and a bit less confrontational than CM. Hopefully that’s just what we need here in Sea-town. Mr. Dudley, we’d love to have you and anybody else who’s wanted to come to CM rides but been put off by it’s reputation.

We’ll meet around 5:30 at Westlake Center in downtown. We’ll plan on leaving shortly after 6:00, and wrapping up the ride around 7:30. See you there.

Jet 60 C2s: a Roleur wheelset

Earlier in the week, the conditions were just right – a side tailwind across the bike, “lifting” the wheels – and I rode the Modal fast. As “a roleur” type of rider, I get a rush from the momentum of a bike, from getting on top of the gear, and holding it there. Riding a tailwind for me, is like a surfer dropping into a big wave and with 60 mm of wing surface, the Jet 60s catch that wind and roll almost effortlessly.

Turkey Bike Rotisserie

I was just planning on picking up the turkey and fixins on the Bettie, but this dude cooks his turkey with a bike rotisserie …

The ratio is 7 pedals to 1 turn of the turkey.
