Last night was the Cemetery Cats pub crawl. A1 is back in town and this was his first pub crawl back, we all welcomed him with open arms. The ride started at the Jackalope an then we headed to Mean Eyed Cat, and then to Dog and Duck for pitchers of lonestar for 5 bucks and some damn good burgers and fries. After this we started to head up to draught house. We were on medical parkway and Casey was jumping over curbs on the way, and landed his forth jump just a little wrong. He face planted into the ground and knocked out three of his teeth and cut his jaw. They gave him seven stitches in his mouth and he is going back today to get an x-ray to make sure that he didn't mess anything else up. The pub crawl pretty much ended after that because we all headed over the hospital (which was right there thank god) to get Casey taken care of.
So this brings me to get on my soap box. All the rides that we all go on are supposed to be fun and bring people together. Now on critical mass everyone has been doing a good job of keeping the group together and corking intersections so that everyone stays together. Same thing with the pub crawls. What I would like to see is just that. What I don't want to see is a rider go down. I don't want to sound like a parental figure or anything to that nature, but if we are drinking on a pub crawl or any other group ride, lets not do tricks of any kind.No skidding, no jumping gaps, no dangerous riding of any sort. Which means no swerving between riders or around cars. I just don't want riders to go down. So I think that it is best that if we lay down some rules so that we can prevent accidents happening in the future.
Now onto something else. I would like to ride down to San Marcos this weekend. If anyone would like to join me...lets do it!!! I will be riding fixed the entire way and a stupid gear ratio at that. So if it takes me a minute to get up the hill just wait for me a second, I'll eventually make it up.
Also, the Drop Dead Alley cat is in full swing. I have a couple of shops that are hooking me up with some goods. So make sure all y'all funky people get off Saturday March 29th to come and race, or just have fun watching all the crazy cyclist. The entry fee is five dollars and starts at Cafe' Mundi. There will be cash prizes, prizes for the ladies that race and for first out of towner. If you want to volunteer to be one of the check points please send me an email to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. I need a few more folks to volunteer. Also afterwards there will be the award ceremony and bike in movie at Treasure City Thrift.
