I see Kenny responded, and I emailed Scott S. about it. Matt and Jerry are the only others and I imagine they know about it.
As for the “lazy ride”, I could certainly do it, but restraint not being one of my strong points I think I should stay away. Any ride can become hazardous if you try hard enough.
It would be good to see everyone, I will consider it.
Man, I SAW those riders from Austin today, practicing for the trials competition. They were riding the obsticles (too many to list) with such skill, that they actually had to stop and ponder how to make the course more difficult.
I suggested that they set up a dozen gallon size paint cans (loose, not nailed down spaced 4-5 feet apart for them to gap forward on - and they laughed me out of the place (that’s too easy for them).
Come! The Muni ride is 8:30 Saturday. The trials stuff will be setup for playing around on Saturday and Sunday (and maybe Friday; if we can work out the logistics – if you are showing up early on Friday and have a truck, or trailer to haul stuff in, I’d love to hear from you!)
Eric actually called me and gave me a heads up about the weekend, but I failed to get the exact dates and already have plans for Saturday. I had some real “valentines day” plans, but they only existed in my head, so the runner-up plan involves cycling on the ordinary. Sunday might be possible. I’m about as good at ‘lazy rides’ as I am at competing in trials, but it would be fun.
Ok, it has been raining pretty steadily in Austin for several days. We are going to inspect the trail conditions and make a last minute decision about riding them or not.
The trails here tend to dry out quickly so don’t assume we are going to cancel.
If we cancel the Muni ride, we will have some other activity to replace it. Bring hockey sticks if you have them. We may setup a hockey match and/or have trials toys to play with.
If you plan to attend any of the Austin Uni Events associated with the Jugglefest this weekend, please PM me or duaner so that we have an idea as to who is coming. It would also be nice to have cell phone numbers, in case we decide to change the location of any activities, we can call to let you know.
Man, this weekend is not going as planned . . . my MUni didn’t arrive yet, I missed this message about trials today, and my email stopped working “out of the blue” today. A couple sets of leg armor arrive though
WHERE is the trials event tomorrow?
Is there still going to be a campus ride?
We’ve loads of trials stuff: pallets, spools, ramps, 1’ 1.5’ 2’ and 2.5’ platforms, skinnies, 15 sandwichboards, a ladder, posts, logs, etc. But we need more riders! (After an sprained ankle Friday, we only have 3 active trials riders )
