There is no such thing as too much flocking
Tagged: flock of cycles
Man, I put way too much belief in the weather report yesterday and didn’t ride, it was beautiful out. I had to content myself with a couple beers and watching some un-freaking-believable cloud formations, somebody got rained on.
when we were at the double wide, there were a lot of really nasty looking clouds south(?) of us with lots of lightening, but it never got it.
Yeah that storm head looked really nasty, with lightning in the sky and everything, but just rolled right past without making any noise.
Another great ride, bbq pulled seitan with a fried egg is the best thing ever.
Oh, and what was that thing that Nick said? Anyone? Beuller?
things were a lot quieter without nick’s music rig though. we need to bring that back.
It’s just a pain to ride with the extra weight. I have some things to sort out with the tall bike, but I’ll bring music next time.
Let’s not talk about what was and wasn’t said last night.
nick, do you really want someone else to bring an ipod? i can try to get together a playlist.. not sure if everyone would like it, but i would try to make it fun
Had alot of fun yesterday! Glad I run into you guys! Food was great! The ride was great! Company was great! Good, good, times…. except for the nasty margarita at Houghs….. Jose Cuervo tequila = death! I know I was in a bit of a funky-funny mood, but come on! It was Friday!
you remind me of my friend, heather. she is as tiny as you and as energetic as you and similar when you have a few drinks in you. well, except that she is known to bite people.
Hahaha, last night was awesome!!! I only really chat with Nick alot on the rides since i know him..But last night i talked to a lot of you at dinner and made some friends for sure! It was def. a great night!
bikeygirl, i’m sad we didn’t get to be introduced since you came out of nowhere.
i bet you could fit into a youth large if they had that.. i know it is a bar, but they might sell youth sizes for ladies also. you’re a skinny dude.. i could see you maybe wearing a youth size.
@stef The shirts had those short girl sleeves–though I think Noah could definitely pull it off. You are more than welcome to bring music.
you barely saw the 80’s. the music is a lot better than the crap that is on the radio today. ok now i sound old.
@bikeygirl: I am willing to bet that our decade difference in music has to do with our decade difference in age….
(Yea, I just called you old.)
Does this mean I can’t listen to Vivaldi anymore?
(I’m sorry I missed the ride, but I was happily trying out bikes at a shop… hoping to catch the August one with a whole new perspective on riding)
@nick… haha! True that – I agree! And go right ahead and call me old! I’m a puma, remember? Hahaha!!!!!
I actually fully-grew up with 90’s music here in the States, while my 80’s influence is really very international and actually 70’s-80’s and in-spanish (coming from Mexico, you know?) So, I don’t think it really matters, to each its own
BTW….. I won’t be coming this friday
Going on an office-field trip…
@ejwme: the Flock Party Ride is this week!
There isn’t a Flock to BBQ schedules for August yet….
ah, but I will be on a plane, as my vacation to Not Here starts at 6AM Friday morning. I’m very excited to be Not Here for two weeks of doing Not This. Except I’ll be missing out on Flocking
naah, it isn’t the 80s so much as the mix. Leave off the decade and focus more on the genre. We could do beach tunes (circa ’62-’69), bubblegum (late ’60s), disco (’74-’81), doo-wop (’55-’63), British invasion (’63-’70 UK acts only), emerging punk (’78-’83), emerging rap (’80-’85) … the possibilities are endless.
Well someone pick, bring music, or plan to listen to my not-so-eclectic mix of hip-hop/pop-punk/punk-ska/punk.
Stu will bring his records.
Speaking of which, I wonder if we could we rig a record player to spin proportional to the speed of the bike? That would be pretty wild. You’d sound like a superstar DJ just doing a track stand.
Dunno if I’ll bring any records with me, but I can maybe rip some stuff to MP3 I’m sure you’ve never heard before. But being that we’re riding through people’s neighborhoods, that does limit it some. (Scratch “Music, Sex and Cookies” by George Uetz. Dang.)
punk was already over by 1978…
maybe we should have a “guest dj” for each ride – although i think if you want to dj you should have to haul the rig.
Black Flag, Bad Brains, and the Descendents disagree!
if you’re using west coast bands to make your argument, you’ve already lost
well i will maintain that the only ramones i accept are the ramones with tommy.
am i the only one who hates the music that came along with the british invasion?
