Week 12: Sunday Bike Ride with the Vertical Swimmer

Star Date:  Week 12

Hello People who are a Big Mac away from a heart attack,

How about his Saigon winter weather we've been having ha?  I had to ask my grandmother to go up in the attic to retrieve my sweater the other day.  Oh, she bitch a little bit, but like I told her ... the future King of Saigon can't be doing manual labor.

To celebrate the arrival of the Saigon winter season, we are going to have our infamous Vietnamese Century this Sunday ... 89 miles.  Why go 100 when you can go 89?  I know a lot of you Type-A folks will not be able to grasp that concept, but that's ok.  I'm sure your mother still loves you even though society hates you.

We have a few new people joining the distro list this week.  This is also our longest ride of the season so far ... and that's not a dig against all of Satin's little children who skipped out on the 4th loop of the Columbia ride with me.  I just want to emphasize that our ride is a drop ride.  Everyone rides at different speed and although we do try to wait at a variety of spots, you are expected to carry a cue sheet in case you get seperated.  I get dropped every week so it's not anything personal.  If you are faster, ride faster.  If you are slower, ride slower.  This is not a kumbya ride.


We are meeting at 7:00 AM this week.  I know that many of you went to a state college or university, so let me repeat ... that's 7:00 AM 7:00 AM 7:00 AM 7:00 AM 7:00 AM 7:00 AM 7:00 AM 7:00 AM 7:00 AM 7:00 AM 7:00 AM 7:00 AM 7:00 AM 7:00 AM 7:00 AM 7:00 AM 7:00 AM 7:00 AM.

The Silver Spring Express Train will be screwing with the Squirrel Nation of Rock Creek this week.  We will meet an hour earlier.  Those bastards are going to think it's daylight savings time gone amuck.  I'd love to see the expressions on their faces when I show up during their nut gathering hour.
We will meet at picnic area #10 on Beach Drive at 6:20 AM with a departure time of 6:25 AM. 

You're not ugly, I'm just beautiful
