August Flock of Cycles
despite (or as a direct result of) the grill-starting-shenanigans, those were some perfectly cooked dogs. props to the chefs/pyros.
Sorry I missed it. I can’t make it to any Flocktivities until next month…
+1 Halloween ride.
You’re part of the Pittsburgh geek mafia or something.
Why didn’t you get FOC on there earlier?
Halloween idea sounds excellent.
I know I ask this all of the time – what is the ride next Friday (week from tomorrow)?
1st Friday: MM
2nd Friday: Flock All Night
3rd Friday: FOC
4th Friday: Critical Mass
I’m not sure how this works when we have 5 Fridays, as we will in Oct & Dec. It was just this confusion that led to Flock getting started in the first place.
5th Friday: Because We Can (bonus extra version of other rides)?
My understanding is that Critical Mass is always the last, not necesarily the 4th.
Wasn’t FOC set up to be last Friday -1?
1st Friday MM
2nd Friday Flock All Night
So it would the the middle Friday that is Bonus Friday, no?
Edmonds is basically right. Critical Mass is always the last Friday of the month.
And in the last month with five Fridays, FOC was on the 4th Friday and there was a bonus ride on the third (Flock to Double Wide?)
October is probably going to follow the same pattern, given people’s interest in Lolly’s Bridesmaid Dress Ride on the third Friday.
OMG I didn’t realize the Bridesmaid Dress ride was on a FRIDAY. That means I’m going to have to drag a bicycle AND A DRESS in to work? And four bus rides? Hmmm, gonnahafta rethink that…
Stu – just wear the dress to work. It’s formal enough, nobody can accuse you of being too casual. And if they don’t reprimand all the women wearing dresses, then they’re committing gender descrimination, and potentially opening themselves up to an EEOE lawsuit. Just make sure your shoes match, otherwise it could be embarrassing.
Hmmm, shoes will be the problem. I may have to borrow something from wife or daughter. But, I’m borrowing the dress anyway, soooo…
stu, I’d suggest picking up a pair of shoes at goodwill perhaps. I can’t say I’d really want a pair of dress shoes back if my husband or father chose to wear them on a bike ride.
It’s weird, but I’ve noticed that goodwill always has a large selection of very large sized women’s pumps/dress shoes. Like bigger than my feet, which are large enough to provide my clumsy butt with a stable, sturdy platform. I wouldn’t have thought the Pgh cross dressing scene would have been that prolific, but apparently it is.
It would be awesome if we had this on a flock ride:
(and had the same synth techno music)
It basically looks like an adult baby jumper
Very cool but I cant help thinking crashing while tied to the bike would kind of suck
still it looks like it would be a lot of fun.
I love that thing. Somebody linked it several months ago, and a few people snarked on it, so the inventor, instead of offering to come to Pgh where there is a huge health care community and do a demo, got all huffy-puffy and ran off to his room, apparently. Dude needed a huge dose of Velominati rule 5.
I’d still like to see a demo, though. A flock ride would be the place. I especially like the “Glidesdale” model.
Not exactly bike-related, but equally strange:
That makes me think of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-trDF8Yldc
Bah, physics overload!
Jeg, I thought of that too, but I haven’t seen one of those climb a hill yet
The soundtrack from that treadmill thing makes me want to… eh, not so much.
I love that music! It’s like Rocky meets Retirement Center. On second thought, I think I would die listening to that music on my morning commute
What time do the Midnight Mass rides typically end? I’ve come to several of the Flock All Night rides, and they seem to go almost three hours and end around 1am.
