Almost forgot, SSO stickers are back in stock. They are white with black lettering this time around - reveresed from the old ones.

A total of 7 riders showed up for the Wednesday night action including recently injured Markie Mark. Same basic route downtown to see if the BBC was still pouring suds. Believe it or not there were 9 kegs left. Hauled all of the bikes inside to avoid losing any. Chomped some food, drank some beer and reversed our course. I expect they will shut the doors this weekend.
Lots of snow fell here yesterday and last night. Should make for a most excellent ride on Saturday when hoards of local single speeders gather to test their skills piloting their rigs in the white stuff. The snow has got me excited like a little kid. Which I guess deep down I still am.

Wednesday - February 23, 2005
Busy here lately, not much time to punch the keys. Busy trying to plan a snowboard trip to feed that other area of my adrenal gland and busy doing some bike related planning. More fluctuating weather and a busy schedule on Saturday mean if I want to ride dirt it's got to be dawn patrol. Luckily Jay is game because otherwise I may not have had the motivation - too early and too cold. We are on the trail at 7 a.m. and it's 18 degrees F, feels like 12 F with the windchill according to weather.com. Whatever the numbers, my face is numb. But, it is great to ride at sunrise with the sky painted a pinkish orange on the horizon. Everything was frozen solid and we cranked out a nice steady loop.
Sunday saw Yous Guys put on a scavenger hunt for Tsunami relief. Everyone threw some money in a pot, winning team took 50%, the other half will be sent to help the victims of that recent natural disaster. Four person teams had to complete 8 checkpoints as fast as they could and collect time bonuses along the way. Our team, the Fearless Vampire Killers completed all of the checkpoints first, racked up a bunch of time bonuses and were back 10 minutes before the next team to check in. In the end, it wasn't good enough, the second team to check in crushed the time bonuses and squeezed us out leaving us with a 2nd place finish and a $100 gift certificate to the Baltimore Tattoo Museum. Which worked out pretty good since our teammate Matt had some work scheduled there for next week. The good guys at Surly also ponied up some swag for the riders. Overall a real good time. Thanks to those who put it on.
We had some more rain Sunday night or Monday, can't remember now, so that means back to the tarmac tonight and we'll see if Baltimore Brewing has any more beer flowing from the taps. I have a feeling it's going to be a close call.
