C'mon, let's strap on our pack mentality and have some fun!
With: a bunch of nice folks who don't race (And Jay, who is nice but used to race)
Bring: Two bottles of water, cash (just in case), snacks (we can't stop for tacos every time), flask/jaybird, light sweater, light jacket, light gloves, lights
Noice! The west side of Confluence is open! Why does this matter? Because the S. Platte River Trail is your best route from our neighborhood to pretty much everywhere except for the 2up & NOOCH.
WOOP WOOP! The elevator is finally up and running at the southernmost 38th & Blake Station pedestrian bridge! FAQ's: Why does this matter? A: because you now have extraordinarily safe and easy access to the southbound section of the South Platte River Trail from our side of the tracks. Come along on the ride tomorrow night (if it's not snowing) and we'll show you the best route!
Marcel is depicted here, apparently jealous that I posted a picture of Mrs. O'Wheelie earlier. This is as close as he gets to saying "cheese."
Damn it's nice to have time to make signs again. FYI: we are approaching the coveted 50% caught up level on repairs. Now is the time to talk about winter overhauls.
Not every day the missus joins you for a breffus burrito! #15MinuteRide #HechoConAmor #TheBesst
Hey, did you know stainless chains are a thing? Cuz that's a thing now. Or maybe it's been a thing for a while and I just found out. Anyways, you heard about it here....eventually.
The Unx has returned to whence he came, you may recommence hammering me with bike questions. Somebody said they needed some wheels built, yessss?
I'm so damned sadmad about the shooting last night I want to barf. Wtf is wrong with people? (Don't answer that or I'll disable comments) Society has problems. Every society has. But society has a lot of things dead right. Nothing that's going on in your life makes it okay to make someone else suffer or die. Life is fucking precious. Any one individual could possess the gene or meme that will save the entire fucking species. You kill them, the future is on you. There are answers to all questions, whether they're known or unknown. If you think it's cool to shoot hundreds of people, or even one person, without knowing everything there is to know, I want to say you're holding the gun backwards, but truth is, you just need to think harder. And better.
Lobstah rolls wirh the Unx! Right heah in Colorado!
Hear hear! It's getting to be that time of year. Also, 1700 lumens is way too much for the path. Nice people use 400 or less. Reposted from @rivelo_pdx.
Community alert: Favorite Uncle is on his way to Denver!!
Hey guess what. Dirty Harry (Williams 1995) and Game Of Thrones (Stern 2015) now on location!
Hoo-ee! Feels good to have that outta the way! #OhWheelieForwardOperatingBase finally has front windows, this time for good!
Sunset run was a resounding success.
Yeah, it's been chilly. That's what sweaters are for! Trust me, after the first 10 blocks you'll warm right up. Meet at the shop, 6pm. Bring lights, a lock, two bottles of water, some cash in case we stop for tacos, some snacks in case we don't (looking at you, Jay & @imaginger), a sweater, a doob or whatever, and a friend!
If you know of a better way to spend ten bucks and a morning, I'm all ears.*
Making this picture didn't help. Not one bit. Rest well, old feller.
