Tuesday Night Ride Report

Sweet ride with three distinct phases: (1) The Arlington Bridge - Slaw-Rebchuck never-mind-the-bullets loop. A potential race course, but not likely to be utilized for a variety of reasons, not least of which is the liklihood of random gunfire; (2) Garbage Hill. Always a classic. Look forward to a hot dog hill climb sometime soon. Fastest four up the switchbacks with dog in hand advance to the championship round. It will involve beer; (3) the Airport. The parkade was tested. Very nice surface, not ideal for a race venue though. Also, an impromptu ride-through of the Sheraton. Good times at the clubhouse, as usual. Some boisterous Calgary Flames fans took our table though. This aggression will not stand. Man. Oh, and by the way, the Flames suck. There has been a bike theft. G-D little pricks. Specifically, Jonny K-H is down a road bike and another slick two-wheeler as well. This is where we pull together and find him a replacement. A brother is hurting. Be on the lookout.

Token haiku:

Airport Sheraton
Security guard gives chase
Slow doors, a close call

Some are racing tonight: WNRS #1 @ BHP. The newly reinvigorated FGBC racing team, however, will not be out in full force. Some dead weight recently eliminated, a distinct whiff of new life can be detected in the air, however. Or perhaps that was the smell of hot dog production blowing in from St B. At any rate, it looks like things are starting to take off for Team FGBC. The roster has swelled to four, and there is a strong forecast for additional growth. Applications can be sent to fortgarrybikeclubATgmailDOTcom. Serious inquiries will perhaps even be considered too. But they will involve a strenuous test of character. The FGBC does not gauge success by way of podium steps. Lightningrod LeAnn will be representing the home team tonight.

OTT: 16 Horsepower, Beyond the Pale
