Cruiser Tuesday

June 30, 2014


Tomorrow is Cruiser Tuesday.

Meeting here at the shop at 7:30 for social lubrication.

Ride starts at precisely 8:17-ish.

Very mellow pace on a mix of natural and paved surfaces; slightly fatter tires recommended.

Internal Monologue

The riding around here is nowhere near this hairy, but this rider’s personal monologue still sounds pretty familiar.
