Can I come over in a cage if i can't ride??
Yeah, or anybody who is heading out there in August...
Or some cool dual sport rides
Or even big bike rides...
Yeah, I figured most people would drive because bullets CAN penetrate Cordura.
So far I see jgormley and MATPOC for Dakar!
Big bike, easy dirt roads. Just to get out and about, maybe starting off Tucker Hollow? I haven't given it too much thought yet.
Maybe not for this ride, but I an interested in a providence ride someday to see some things like: thayer street, blackstone blvd, john brown house, capital bldg, waterfront, roger williams park, etc....
The only way to do the city justice is to do it on a scooter. I'd be happy to lend you one
I'd be up for that on Saturday, jgormley (joking 'bout the scoot). If others want to do a true BBDoR, by all means, do that.
Cool... can you think of more sites?
How are your gpx skills... want to make a route or wing it?
I don't need no stinking GPS to get y'all lost in Providence!!
Sounds spiffy. I'm thinking TKCs, the roads will be a bit wet and muddy.
Or Sunday if no rain? I've committed myself to some Brit bike group activities Saturday
Looks like 50* w/ 20% chance of rain in Newport. Might b a good day to get the big ol' girl dirty.
I put in my OT request for the weekend, Sunday only. It'll be too nice to work on Saturday, gotta play sometime...
ok kids, me and jgormley are going to meet up at 11am at the Seven Stars bakery on Hope Street (hi levain!) on Saturday (1/12) for the "Is that a gun in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?" Probbydense tour. All are invited. I do have a scooter to lend if you really want to embrace urban riding because really, how better to outrun the Hanover Boyz than on a 27-year-old TNG Honda?!
Later on Saturday (6pm), all are invited to the charming abode of the cheesebot and me, Thistle House, to watch the first week of Dakar. We got a good feed from British Euro Sport where they talk about more than Robbie Gordon and Cyril Despres. Best of luck to Pal-Anders Ullevalseter, the green meanie! If you want to come over, shoot me a PM and I'll give you directions.
In like a thing that is in stuff. and things.
Somebody said " Dakar" ??I had plans that day but I am going to try to figure out something..I wonder what kind of bullshit Cyril Despres would pull again.
damn. I have to be in NY that day.. If not I would be showing up at some point.. I don't think I need a tour of providence after living there for so many years but hanging out watching Dakar proceedings would be fun and a tour of your garage would be interesting too...
I can meet you at Seven Strollers but will be on 4 wheels, I have to deliver my offspring to some educational gathering 10:30ish and pick him up by noon....
Big bike? The weekend does look nice. I'm sure ill be up for putting some miles on. My knee has been giving me a good bit of pain since before New Year, but I think its calming down. I should be able to ride this weekend.
It's been a while since I crossed the bridges, maybe a ride out your way is in order.
