bikes sounding like shotguns

briefly went to wilderness tonight w/ nate, jamie, matt and big bad chad. rode about 1/8th of the fitness loop but then the mud and the mosquitos became to much plus nate was pimping the new explosif and he didn't want it to get mosquito bites. so we headed out on the trail leading to pioneers park. jamie and i were in front then chad was a little ways back then nate and matt were a little ways behind him. we were casually riding along when it sounded like someone took a shot @ us w/ a shotgun. it scared the shit out of me and i swerve almost knocking jamie over. we stop to find out that chad's rear tube exploded- and when i say explode- i mean there was a 3-4 inch hole in the tube. from behind, nate said there was a big poof of white smoke. well, there was also a large gash in the sidewall of chad's rear tire. nate fixed the flat while chad ate a cliff bar. nater used the wrapper from the bar to make a "cliff boot" to cover the hole in the tire. i think at this point we all subconscuiosly admitted to ourselves that perhaps the ride was never meant to be. so, he headed to yia yia's for slices and beers. i ate mine the same way the fucking mosquitos ate me.

No way. We need an airtanker loaded with some weedkiller. It would take the nam out of wilderness while also giving all of our animal friends a healthy glow.

You losers need to get some road bikes.

road bikes are for people who enjoy looking over their shoulders to see if redneck willy is going to run them down. gravel is so much more peaceful.
