Wednesday Night Ride Report Yes, I'm aware that Wednesday night was wednesday and this is friday. That should give you a clue about the type of ride it was: a boiling froth of hopped-up bike nerds, some 25 strong, derbied and pounded out what amounted to an impromptu night-time street/alley/trail criterium. The fastest WNR I can recall for quite some time. And remarkably, even with a strong showing of noobs, by the time the dust settled and the thing turned back from Wirth, there were still 19 people. That's what warm weather, an almost full moon, and trails unchained for the first time since last summer will do to people I guess. Even the strongest of the strong were heard whimpering thursday. -----

Snake Charmer

On Saturday, the Pug and I traveled out to a favorite campsite in a western ‘burb for a night of camping. We've had a lot of rain lately, so I figured Pugsley would be the best vehicle to get through anything the trail had to offer. The purpose of my…
