Here's an interesting irony: I'm writing a wednesday night ride report even though I didn't actually go on the WNR last night. Why me? Well, Brauer just rolled in looking peckish. It's 4:30 in the afternoon. Sov and Nick are both scabbed and bruised and look like they slept in a squirrels' nest. And then there are the comments, sporadically arising between phone calls and extended periods of labored breathing, such as: "My ass still stinks. I can't believe it. I only ate eight of them." and "You wouldn't be able to smell it yet, it just happened." Stories keep bubbling up too, like EazyP.Z. riding over GO's bike after a failed top tube bike surf attempt, which GO escaped from without injury, landing on his feet like a cat. I am somehow both sorry and glad I didn't make it out last night. -----

Fixed Gear Across the USA I've heard you, out there, talking. You think you're pretty tough, and you are, sort of. You ride and you drink and you're a messenger and you go big miles and you ride big dirt. Totally cool. Maybe you even rode all the way across…
