so many of us are riding the skinny tired bikes.  I notice a lot of poor pace line action going on.  Here is good information about pacelines

ok so what about the hand signals and stuff.  i was told to point out the potholes and obstacles in the road but most of the time i feel like its more dangerous for me to take my hands off the bars @ 20+mph to point * out....

i need more practice i suppose

Roadie Scum Bag Tip #299 :  If you hear someone call out "ROCKET!"  Move the heck out of the way and make sure you have your mouth closed.  He is about to blow snot on you....  I at least politely  move to one side and aim for the ground.  But how knows how the wind is blowing... LOL

From this weekends my iphony is better then doucheberry collection:  Here is Mikey tackling "No Hill" Hill.  That was a biatch with head winds...

Now that you have a hold of our manual, we will need to change the rules.   ;D
