Oct 2nd at 5pm we will begin doing laps around Sore Bloke's. It is roughly a 1/4 mile, cut off from major traffic, and, well, in front of his house. The money will come from donations from friends and family, places of business, strangers, etc. Get sponsored per lap or per goal (say 25, 50, or 100 laps). Come ride and have fun. Collect your sponsored money and we will give it all to the BBP. I will provide a grill and some coolers, pitchers of water, condiments, etc.

This last week I was helping Whateva fix a flat on the Moster truck and I realized that I had a larger chain ring on my "art bike" than on the Felt. I promptly started to cannibalize the art bike. It took some time to get the rings off and reattached. But the real bitch was shortening the darn chain! I was worried that ultimately I was just screwing up both of my favorite bikes.
The transformation was complete. Now for the test ride......
Switching from a 42 to a 46 chain ring, there are a few things that automatically happen. You go a hell of a lot faster -my average mph went up! But my longevity went to shit, it will take a few weeks to train my legs to last more than 10miles!
I won't be riding any sprints with this ratio, but I will be moving up finishing spots in the next alley cat! (hopefully)
