And now is the time on Sprockets....

when we go to PMBAR...

My bags are packed and all systems are go for an early exodus from work tomorrow.

One bag of gear and another chock full of fjear.

The irony of the situation is that tomorrow I'm driving in to work so my car can be staged as close to the uptown as possible, and while that in itself is not entirely ironic the fact that I ride my bike to work almost 100% of the time under normal conditions but happen to be driving TOMORROW is totally ironic as once I park my car I'll be heading over to the Dowd YMCA to join the mayor and hundreds of other cyclists to ride .73849 miles into uptown Charlotte for the annual Ride to Breakfast with the Mayor that traditionally kicks of BIKE! Charlotte every year (yes, that was one sentence). To summarize, I'll be driving 4.3 miles to unload my bike so I can ride it .5 miles to the YMCA to then ride .73849 miles to eat breakfast .139 miles from where I start my work day. That should be a good warm up ride for PMBAR, dontcha think?

Hard to believe, but when I get back from PMBAR I will barely have time to unpack and then re-pack before I leave for my first (but the third annual for everybody else) Dirt, Sweat, and Gears 12 Hour Race in Fayetteville, TN. I'll either be rolling in the Pro Duo class with my PMBAR partner Thad, or if I can't stand him and his crybaby tendencies any more than I may just have to go solo. Either way I'm finally going to the big endurance party of the East Coast that I've only heard about in folk lore and from the mouths of gypsies. Speaking of gypsies... Peter "Dude, where's my nutsack?" Keiller will be there too, so if you're one of the many people who have been bugging me about 2009 Bad Idea Racing jerseys be sure to bring your complaints to the design team in person. Please be sure to say something flattering about his new steel frame, or the whole encounter might be sullied by Peter's tears.

No posts tomorrow due to scheduling conflicts. Set your alarms forward a few minutes and get some sleep instead. For those of you who tend to read this at work please go here to waste your time.

Stay tuned kids.

I have it on good accord that there will be a DJSTD (Dicky Jersey Sales Table of Death) somewhere at DSG.


Banana slides, Dicky Pinata and possibly some other shite to help Team Dicky in his quest for legitimate cycling acceptance.
