frinightride&drink

rode last night on the "hour of power" gravel loop w/ the donkey, tony w and john w. it was john's maiden voyage on his newly converted single speed and i think he was stoked. no more suspension either. we're fucking idiots- aren't we cvo. ride was good- the big hill had super loose gravel/dirt and it made us hurt getting to the top. well, i don't think it hurt tony but it hurt the rest of us. speaking of tony, the nut job was wearing black slacks and super birkis and was riding fixed. of course, he still handed all three of us our asses w/o breaking a sweat. i rode next to him on gravel going about 15mph as he dismounted ala 'cross, ran, then jumped back on- on a fixed gear- on gravel- in clogs. fuck. so anyway, the ride was good. at least one beer break and some whiskey breaks as well. the mission ended, as all good missions do, at o'rourkes where alternating pbr and boulevard stout pitchers were consumed. i think there was an old style and a fat tire pitcher in there as well. got hassled on the ride home by toad women who thought our bikes were taking up to much room for their car to get around. at the stop light @ 13th and 'k', two of them proceeded to get out of their auto and call us 'fags' a half a dozen times. they were mad. maybe they were just hungry. i know what its like to be drunk at 1:30 in the morning and all you want is a pizza but the little fuckers on their bicycles are taking their sweet ass time. i would have called me a fag to if i were them. rode home to peaceful slumber though woke to the familiar boom boom inside my head.

i got off work last week and drove down to check out the new pool in seward. pretty swank- though its weird for me to come around the corner by that industrial manufacturing place and not see the familiar sight of the old pool that i grew up with. and fuck- no snack stand? whats up with that? where will the boys go to flirt w/ the girls while getting a sugar fix? ah, times, they are a changin'.

Yeah, Donkey was telling me about a particular hill/cliff you guys ran into. I'm jealous.

Maybe "allowed" should be replaced with "informed" or "invited."

I'm a sad other Scott.
