Death Drive a Success

At least in that we are still here to talk about it. Jonny G, Cousin Adam, Paddy, Colin, and myself. Unfortunately, though not surprisingly I suppose, the gates were locked in those cases where there were gates to lock. There was a gaping hole in the fence at St. John's Cathedral, but a spooky rake wielding figure gave us pause. Paddy had a flat and left us at the basilica in St B. Or at least that's what he said. We wonder if he may have been spooked by the rabbit that ran out of Louis Riel's grave. He didn't even stick around to pay respect to Colin's kin. Either way, what started out as 5 was all of a sudden 4. Obligatory Blair Witch references were made as we rode over to the Elmwood Cemetery. On the way over to the F&H we ran into some scary kids in the Sherbrook parking lot who were out on a gate night ride. Greetings and pleasantries were exchanged.

Nice turnout at the F&H. Good to see coach Unger out for the first time in a while. Alberto wants to buy a helmet cam. This desire was affirmed. The mention of video recording devices led to a recounting of Penner's crash for the new recruits. It was noted that Matt hasn't made a Tuesday Night Ride appearance since he collected all the "downpayments" for the wool jerseys. Some tentative plans for 24 Hours of Louis Riel were shared. It is scheduled for Feb. 16-17, 2008. Put it on your calendars now. Jonny N will be visiting from the left coast next week. We expect him to be along for the ride. The secretary has a bike for him.

OTT: Jess Klein, Middle Road
