Yeah. It would also help if it weren't on a Thursday a few days from my son's birthday.

Further to some other shit we were talking about, I'm going over to Banner Forest tomorrow morning. I'm planning on getting either the 8:35 or the 9:15 Fauntleroy-Southworth boat. I'll be driving from North seattle and bringing the dog.


(wife and Roscoe in Banner earlier this year)

Because dog, might not be able to ride at full-top speed the entire time(plus I'm cat5 anyhows), but we can split into groups of folks want. Also, lots of people just park in west seattle and bike on, it's a short 3 mile ride to the trails from the Southworth dock. I can put some more trays on the subie roof for carpooling if that makes sense.

Banner is f'ing awesome twisty fun singletrack. Great on CX bike just gotta watch for occasional roots that you can bunnyhop so no pinchflat. Fun on XC mtb, too, whatever. No elevation to speak of, even on a multi-geared machine I usually only shift a few times.

Fred, time to get the Rawland dirty?

1pmish. I just need to get out in the woods for a bit and the dog needs to get run. I could go a touch earlier or later, too.

Was actually in Southworth at like 2am on the last ferry after a ridiculous misadventure on Vashon :dramacloud:

If I'd had my bike with me I would've got off there, camped at Banner, and met you in the morning…

Cross club is in Woodland park tonight. Meet at 7 at the tennis courts near 50th. $2 to race.

Figured I'd it out there since it's not gonna get any more convenient than this one for Tarckee.

They had a lot of cool stuff here. I cleaned them out of their cross tires. 3 Tufo tubs for $20 and a pair of Michelin Mud 2 clinchers for $5. Got some new Shimano road cleats for $1 so I have extra cleats (and more importantly hardware) now.

There was a pair of new Dugast 27mm tubs marked at $50 each (orig $120). FUUUUUU

Nothing here, but I'll watch cl. If she's looking for a road bike I would prepare her to spend closer to $300 though. Tough to find anything decent for that cheap.

A friend of a friend is on a cross country bike tour (www.steelingwest.com) and is stopping in Seattle for the weekend. He wants to connect with bike folks (duh). Anyone know of sweet bikey events going on this weekend? All I've seen is the labor day cargo bike ride for Val's memorium. While that'll probably be a cool event, i dunno if it's exactly the sort of fun thing he wants to do.

I didn't have much of a chance to know Val, but the few times I talked to him he was super nice and obviously knew his stuff.

RIP, dude.

I went out for a quick solo too, it ended up being a bit of a 'mare since my freewheel gummed up and I couldn't coast. Almost called for a ride but then I remembered I rode fixed for years and could clearly pedal the whole way home. I couldn't work out what was wrong until I got home and took everything apart.

I have a few scheduling conflicts and if Sunday may or may not have a kid in tow which can complicate beer plans.

Naked City has many, many beers and is kid friendly though.

We will not have bicycles. Girlfriend LOVES kids, so she might try kidnapping Wiggo from you Seth.

We'll be in First Hill, I think. Wherever the hell that is. We'll be using taxi's as our mode of transport, I reckon.

Haha. Well since he got his hair cut he's been working on an Ian Brown circa 1989 thing. I'll need him back at some point though.

First Hill is pretty close to stuff. The wife and I ate here on Capitol Hill (pretty close) a few weeks ago. It was amazing.

It's looking like daytime or after 9 is going to be best for me because I have early evening stuff going on both Saturday and Sunday, but you have my info, so...

Um Seth, aren't you racing cross on Sunday too? Unfortunately for me cross will take up my small bit of me time that weekend which is a HY but also a WTH 'cos hanging out could be cool to.

Planning on it, but if there are plans I could head back to Seattle early. Saturday would be better for this reason though.

Well, let's figure on an after 9:00 drink grab on Saturday night? Saturday, depending on what time we get in, is probably going to be a sightseeing day. I think we might try to grab one of those ferries to Canada on Sunday. Maybe. That's how loosely planned this trip is.
