Milwaukee Santa Rampage

DP, Katie and myself took part in the Santa Rampage this year. It started out a little tame, but only got better as the day progressed. Highlights included mini-bowling, tons of honking from cars, a Mall rush, Dan's flask, drinking with some rummies at Mary's place, and other highlights somewhat-blurrily remembered. The moral of the story is that bikes/bowling/booze is fun, it's okay to be done with your Saturday partying by 5 pm as long as there is Mexican food to be had, and do not try to mimic synchonized circular headbanging (ala Metallica ...And Justice era) while on a fixed gear or you might give your friend's finger a meat puppet.

Sure was a nice time out there at the ol' farmstead for the biathlon. Beer, bb's, abandoned coon-infested farmhouse destroyed, hijinks. Check out the kittenfactory.blogspot.com for some pics, or wait a couple of months until I get around to posting some here.

Go small or go home

Thunder Threat Pics 2

In an unprecendented manner of having things together, the glorious ThunderCross was followed in less than one month by another glorious event: THUNDER THREAT! If you were there, you might vaguely remember the details. For those absent, there was a big ol' hill, 2 tiny bikes, a dual slalom course, wet and bumpy grass/weeds, approx. 5 cubes of PBR, lots of Darkness, lit-up traffic cones, lots of yelling, and most suprisingly of all: no injuries!! In the end Lyle took the crown in what was likely the quickest run of the night. Another great event, and I do say so myself.

Rumors of a libertarian event in the farmlands of Phil Scharine are circulating like so much wildfire that we will likely cause. ThunderFlamingPalletPlowPondJumpSwayze is taking form, so don't let those Fall blues get ya down.

Return of the Tiny Bike

Due to recent debauchery, bike sales, job searching, apartment cleaning, job finding and moving to Milwaukee, I've been a first-class clucker when it has come to updating this here website. Not only have I failed to produce a write-up for the bestest ThunderJet ever (ThunderCross!!), but the next ThunderJet is but 6 days away and I don't have the flyer up yet. Fear Not! I am back in the saddle and ready to spew my nonsense across the info superhighway. Pics from ThunderCross and the flyer for TJet: Dual Slalom - Lip Gloss vs. Vertical Threat will be up early this week. They'd be up today if hotmail wasn't played out, but I'll get it for y'all soon, or you can email me at boognish50@hotmail.com for a flyer. Til then:

TJet Dual Slalom
Saturday, August 26th
Elver Park
6:30 pm

I believe Revolution Cycles is having a party all day that may be migrating out there. A core crew will be out there early trying to establish a proper course. If a meeting time to bike out there comes to light, you'll read it here first (though it might be a month from now).

Lord Hayden - TJet Hype Man

edit: for an instant fix, go to www.kittenfactory.blogspot.com for the flyer and so much more bike buggery!

Tuesday, July 11, 2006

Oh Yes!!! We will meet around 6, somewhere in Quann Park. I'll post a meeting point if one is established, if not you can drunkenly stumble around until you find some stumblin' drunks! Posted by Picasa

Thunder Pursuit

A belated description of the mighty Thunder Pursuit........

A rainy Saturday scared all but the most serious of track cyclists/boozehounds away from the Thunder Pursuit, but the confluence with Lyle's Alley Cat race guaranteed a healthy turnout. Those new to the event were baffled at first, but once Sleight White and Earl took to the course it was on. Dan Powell returned from his 1-race cheating ban to succesful cheat against the heavy favorite Lord Hayden. More hyjinx ensued, included many races involving unknown fixie dudes.

The conditions guaranteed that the races could only last a matter of time before someone crashed onto the ground. Veelander and J-Mac tested your narrator's booze-addled attention span with an epic race included many near catches and reversals of fortune. DP helped Vee immensely by yelling in his face. Throughout all the races the crowd in the gazebo screamed relentlessly for loss of limb and life - mission accomplished.

In the end the sleightest White salvaged victory and was rewarded with the jersey of foulness. I think it's safe to say that we all learned a lot, saved the children, and got 'faced in the name of tiny bikes.

Thunder Hype

Hey suckas: Just a last minute hype for the Thunder Pursuit this Saturday. The flyer was a little too vague, so here's the scoop: The bikes are provided, the beer-drinking is mandatory, looks like it's going to rain, and the competition will be fierce. Bring some beer and a good flat pair o shoes. Yeeeeeeee-haaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The moustache party was a(n) (a)rousing success. Some left with a new-found sense of purpose, most with a hangover. Posted by Picasa
