    I had an 1190 for a couple of days, courtesy of CityBike.

    Fast, super nice suspension & brakes, comfy for big guys... very fun to ride, but not very conducive to the kind of hooliganism I particularly enjoy.

    So shall we plan Feb?

    Yet to see the photos from January ?

    Soooo, we should lock down a date. With the President's day week etc. I propose Feb 12th (Wed).

    I missed the Englander meet up, and love their beer selection, especially Pliny the Elder and Brother Thelonius on TAP!

    Plus I picked up a used item I want to ride to the event.....BRAAAPPP!

    Dude! You talked me into throwing out Brotzeit, and then you go and change it up on me? Sheesh... I see how it is...


    Photos on the way, maybe later today. They didn't turn out all that great.

    How about here one day?

    http://montclairgolfshop.com/id4.html

    Food, well it is what it is.

    Parking lot - well it's big and in a hole.

    Bar - it has one.

    It's a little hard to find but it's also a dive :lol3

    Hey Gang.

    This coming week is S.F. Beer Week and a lot of places (The Trappist, etc) in the East Bay are having special beers and tastings. This is a good thing!! :freaky

    According to the Weather service there is a 10% chance of rain next Tuesday. This is also a good thing!!!!:clap

    Here are a couple of options:

    www.pizzaantica.com

    Experience Drake’s Brewing at Pizza Antica Lafayette! In celebration of SF Beer Week, we’ll be offering three exclusive brews from this San Leandro-based brewery. Perfectly paired with these innovative and often unapologetically hoppy beers will be Chef Ceynowa’s pork belly arancino and a Lucanica sausage accompanied by crisp duck fat fried potatoes, savoy cabbage, and whole-grain mustard.


    Website: www.hopyard.com
    Admission: No admission
    All 30 taps featuring beer from the 9 counties of the Bay Area!! All week long!!

    Other ideas?

    Cheers

    Kevan

    hmm. I don't know if I'll be able to extend my pinkie finger properly while drinking that unapologetically hoppy stuff...

    Mmm...Bull Valley Roadhouse...

    We rode out there in early December during that brutal cold snap we had. It was icy and frozen going over the hill by Inspiration Point in Tilden. Teens in the valley. Anyway, the place was warm and inviting and the food was good but pricey. Not exactly a Meet & Eat place...

    There is always McGees in Alameda.

    Actually a pretty decent place.

    I vote for a place within Beerweek zone.
