    ***Update as of 12/20/2012, we will be meeting up every Thursday at the below time and location!

    A few of us Creeps have been meeting up on Thursday (no longer on Wednesday) nights afterwork at the Blue Danube Coffee House (no longer at Peets on Park St @ Central Ave) in Alameda. We get there around 6pm and hang out for an hour and a half or so. All bikes are welcome! Join us!

    PSA: the Fruitvale Ave bridge is one of the only paved bridges, the others are metal grate and are pretty sketch to ride over in traffic, like riding marbles! There's also the tunnel at the north end of the island, that's a fun way to go!

    He could have ended up much worse, bruised ribs, puncture in the knee, and concussion. He's still has no memory of the accident all the way thru waking in the hospital. $3500 for the insurance repairs thru Scuderia on a nearly new Dorsodura.

    It's been sporatic due to busy work schedules, like mine where I start work at 6pm in Mtn View. It started as a Creeps M/C meet, but we wanted to see it grow. That way we could all count on there being a dozen other riders to chat with and trade stories! Please start coming, i would love to see it get big! It looks like it will be another month or 2 of nights for me! :puke1 Im hoping to be able to do some summer eve rides this year!
