The times they are a changin'

The BABE is looking around at the Cooler Buddy Blog.

This is quite a blog you got here,
man. Completely unspoiled.

What's your drink, BABE?

White Russian, thanks. How's the
boozing business, Frank?

I wouldn't know, BABE. I deal in
Cycling, exercise, advocacy, and--

Which one was the last Pi Ride?

Regrettably, it's true, standards
have fallen in our bicycling events.
It's this bar I have, BABE. Now that I have
another job, I can’t afford the time to invest
in BABE meetings, phone calls, email
distribution lists and in-depth blog postings
to get people interested in our rides.

He taps his laptop with one finger.

People forget that the computer is the
biggest communication device--

For you, maybe.

He hands him the drink.

Of course, you do get the good with
the bad. The new technology permits
us to do exciting things with
member communications with postings and text
messages. Wave of the future, BABE. 100%

Uh-huh. Well, I still communicate

Of course you do. I can see you're
anxious for me to get to the point.
Well BABE, here it is. When’s the next ride?

I thought you might know, man.

Me? How would I know? The only
reason I ever know any of the rides is
because either I schedule them, or someone
calls me on the phone. But now, with
Facebook, anyone can schedule a ride and
everyone who’s in the Facebook Group will know
about it.

Okay, you get the idea… so go out and join Facebook, if you haven’t already, and start posting your rides and communicating with all. I hope it’ll help get everyone talking again, and keep so much being channeled through me, who simply doesn’t have the time he used to.

Ride on,

Pi Rides R Back - Tuesday, January 19, 2010

I took off some time for the Pi Rides over the holidays, and again this week due to a very large project I was working on here at the, uh, facility.  Anyway, I'm ready for another Pi Ride, and in keeping the spirit of the Pi, want it to be in a place which I've never ridden.

The ride starts from here at 7pm this coming Tuesday, January 19, 2010...

I don't expect it to be a long ride.  Hey, it's winter.  It's cold.  It's dark.  We're far way from home.  But you know what?  It'll be fun, I know that.

Let freedom ring!

Six Years

Six years ago, on a cold dark night, the BABE club was born, beneath a neon light.

Though the pace of our activities have slowed, it's a fine feeling to know we're still doing it. We're getting older, but we're still getting out there, laughing, sweating, drinking, shocking some, enticing others. The spirit and the idea, remain.  Countless have fought it, many have died for it.

I just want it to ring.  Forever.  Freedom.

The peaceful battle continues...

Happy New Year

It hurt today.  It felt great today.

More miles in Twenty Ten.  But perhaps not for a few days.  Brrrrrrrrr.
