Weekend Open Thread

Posted by on July 17th, 2009 at 4:43 pm

What are your plans this weekend?

There are a ton of organized events going on — check out yesterday’s Weekend Event Roundup for a partial list.

If you’re still looking for something fun tonight, check out the fun-sounding Rubber Side Down Exploratory Ride or, if you’ve got young’uns, Kidical Mass in the early evening. Later on is a particularly fun birthday celebration on the Dropout Ride .

    Working. But biking to work, does that count? 🙂 And probably a recreation ride somewhere too.

    Still recovering from the Gold Rush 1200, but jonesing to get back on my bike – perhaps a slow ramble around town . . . .

    Up waaaaay early to watch TdF and have a hearty bkfast with friends (champagne included). Then we’re off for a long ride to work off the excitement and the calories. Will come through the Parkways on the way back.
