september means ride, a lot

august was, still is, hot. september offers some relief but will it help you for all the centuries needing to be ridden that month?

9.11.11 enchanted circle century starting in red river, circling through taos, angel fire, eagles nest and back to red river…like climbing the crest twice. $35

9.18.11 tour of the rio grande valley ¬†this is a new old ride here in town. starts in los ranchos and dips down south of belen and back. the nice thing…you can strategically take the rail runner back to town if you time it right. pretty much a flat ride…fixed gear friendly. $50

9.25.11 tour de acoma more riding around in the desert. visit parts of the pueblo rarely seen by whitey. near sky city casino. $60, or can you see us now? starts in good old nob hill and rolls to tiguex park. a memorial ride for fallen cyclists…raising awareness. free.

links fixed.

summer hibernation

i roll silently, from shadow to shadow, trying my best to hide from the sun’s merciless reign…wishing for darkness. wishing for cool. water bottles hot as coffee, saddles too hot to sit on, the sweat between skin and pack…all soon to be a forgotten (bad) dream.

what? it’s still august?

fuck.

like a vampire groundhog, i crawl from my hole to herald the coming of another poker ride. this saturday night, come out and sing praise to the cooling darkness…or just come to ride.

hidden park, 9pm

heyfixie’s 3rd quarterly poker ride

due to no malfeasance on my part, i won again (total annual winnings…maybe 100$ [i always get the small pots]). not only will i be the mc of saturdays event, i’m also predicting another honest win for myself in the 4th quarter.

where will we be going, you ask?

it’s a secret dummy (only if by secret, i mean i havent quite decided). there will be a heavy metal cruise, along with post ride shenanigans @ the¬†new(?) cesar’s. what does that mean? byob and find out.

hidden/mcduffie park. 9pm. sat.
