Game time

Rain. Forty-degree weather. A puddle-filled,
asphalt hockey rink behind a middle school in Spenard
on a Friday night. Sounds like a good scene
for scoring a bag of crack, if it weren't for
17 or 18 bike nuts riding around in mad loops
while swinging plastic bats at a Wiffle ball.

This was zany bike behavior at its best. Skidding tires,
laughter, the grunts of frustration that follow
a swing and a miss as somebody fails to hit a rolling ball
with a skinny round bat carried on a rolling bicycle.
Could there be a better combination of sounds?

Of course there could be, but this ain't a porn site
so we'll stick with bike polo and call it good.

Big thanks to Greg at Speedway Cycles
for the post-game food, beer and winter racing flick
on the showroom TV.

Kinda resembles our weekly group ride! :-)

Man! I have been missing some cool action and events while I've been on vacation. But, it's not like I haven't been enjoying the riding where I've been. Check out the links to my Carbon Footprint Reduction Vacation --
