Hey Metal Heads. All ya’ll ready for another chance at those hills?
Cool. Here’s how we do things:
Meet at the Pfluger Pedestrian Bridge on Monday at 7pm. We’ll leave the bridge at 7:30pm SHARP! Don’t be late as there’s no catching us once we leave. (Yes, that’s a challenge). Expect a reasonably fast pace, covering 25.6 miles on an urban route. Next, we’ll hit Barton Springs for some cold water goodness. Once we’re nice and chilly, it’s to the Jackalope, always generous to the two-wheeled kind. Once we get there, expect free beer, heavy metal madness, half-priced pizza and happy hour ($2.00 wells) all damn night.
This is not a your normal road ride. This is a fast paced urban ride for all types of bikes. Single-speed, fixed-geared, multi-geared, bmx, road bikes and mountain bikes and all other kinds of bikes are welcome. You will be riding with friends, not your mother, so bring all of your gear. YOU NEED TO HAVE WATER, tools to change a tire, a tube or patch kit and a pump, your swimsuit and a lock. The pace will be pretty fast. If you can’t keep up, that’s cool, just drop off and meet us for swimming and drinks later.
The Heavy Metal Fitness Ride is for cyclists that enjoy riding in a diverse group and like a little pain, followed by a little pleasure in the form of chilly spring water, free beer and heavy metal music.
I went on the full moon cruise last night. I broke off from the group around 2:30 when we crossed Airport blvd. It was a great ride, but I was done. I pedaled over to Mrs. Johnson’s Donuts. The “hot donut” light was on. Got a couple of glazed and some milk, ate them in the parking lot and pedaled home. I was riding today and looked down at my forks and saw the sweet evidence of my great night.
As of yesterday at 4:27pm, Gov. Jindal signed the Colin Goodier Bicycle Protection act, also know as the Louisiana 3 feet bill! It is now state law!! Now the work real begins with public awareness, education, adding cycling related info into the drivers license study guide and test, etc.etc…… I couldn’t be more proud of my team, Tiger Cycling for taking the initiative and following through the legislation. It wasn’t easy but the hard work has paid off!
