Boyette 8/23/08
« on: August 22, 2008, 08:15:59 AM »
Boyette ride at 8:00 am tomorrow.  Casual ride more than likely, a slow pace with stops whenever anyone needs one. Everyone is welcome!  This is a great opportunity to ride with Swamps premier
overweight group and still gaining.  Newbies, out of shapes, do not miss this opportunity.  
Naturally, we will have luncheon at a local eatery aftwards.  Awards will be given for most tree hits, flips and cuts and scrapes.   No breakfast, so bring your own Mcdonalds.

LOL! Premier overweight group? I don't remember signing off on that when I joined.  ;)

And you know I got that tree hit award on lock down, causes that's how I roll.  ;D

LOL, thanks Darrin.

See you guys there! I'll be there between 8 and 8:15. I'll also be online tomorrow morning if plans change

Also, does anybody have a presta tire gauge? Mine didn't come in and I have one tire @ 45-ish psi thanks to the LBS and one at who knows. (but I do know it's a lot less than 45, lol)

I have one.  Its called my 2 fingers squeezing the tire. Sometimes my calibration is off by 2 or 3lbs.   Ill see everyone at 8 am.  What if the skinny dude gains weight?  Do we have to get another one?

Sorry Darrin, I don't have ANY gauge. =/ Guess I'm gonna depend on Jim's method. And don't worry Jim, I'll try hard to keep the skinny dude quota on track  ;)

Do you all know our bikes? (anthem and trauma).I got the sexy baby blue Gary Fisher 29er.  ;D Which they now offer in all white for 2009, boo.  :P

My floor pump has a gauge and head that accomodates shrader and presta, I will have it in the trunk for general consumption :) I will be in a Grey Mazda 3 with the Blue Trance on top.
