After the meeting, we went up the street to hit the Chambersburg pump track. I've been using my 26" wheeled Surly 1x1 for this type of stuff but Larry and Buck brought 20" BMX bikes and I have to say, you can definitely build up the speed faster on the little bikes. Lots of fun and lots of kids out riding the track. Cool to see the next generation out there.
So after I got home I decided to start searching for a BMX bike to add to the mix. Buck's friend trash picked his, so I figured that was one option; keep my eyes peeled around town. Before that though, I figured I'd check out the local Freecycle listing. With luck I found a Redline listed a few days before and after a few emails I was off to picked it up this morning. A little air in the tires and it's good to go. Score! I guess things come full circle, as the last BMX bike I owned many, many years ago, was a Redline.
But back to Saturday. Returning home in the late afternoon gave me a bit of time to get reorganized and then hit the RideLugged.com alley cat in town. Great time, solid turnout, friends old and new. Definitely a good way to spend Saturday night. I didn't win anything, but I'm going to blame that on the drunken organizers math skills...
Big thanks to the organizers and volunteers for putting it on. And if you missed, well maybe next year it will return.
