I have a suggestion, not for the program but more for the riders: Stop weaving all over the place and riding like lunatics just because you ride in khakis/skirts instead of athletic gear. And quit the crazy ivans PLEASE!!!

Thank you.

Doing a crazy Ivan on a bike would be an ELITE move.

Have you tried riding a bike in a skirt? It's not easy! ;)

When you see a CABI doing a Crazy Ivan, it means its a tourist from Russia - you must give that Russian a wide berth. Then, move out west, marry a round American woman and raise rabbits.

When you see those types of riders, you have to let them know you're there. Use your bell to verify your range to target... one ping only.

As an Irish-American, I am well qualified to play a Russian submarine cyclist.

No, no, you have to be Scottish. Because if it's not Scottish, it's crap.

Cycling in khakis is divine, the only way to experience biking. Skirts... those are the work of the devil, I tell you.:p

And from now on, everyone who has read this post and hears a bicycle bell will hear that bell ring in Sean Connery's accent. *ping*

I posted this a while back, but Aston Martin has been slow to add radar guidance, non-lethal machine guns (with soft foam ammo) and sticky web torpedo launchers to their new Factor001 bike. But as soon as those become available, I'm getting those installed as add-ons. (Don't ask me how I plan to pay 25,000 for all of this...)

Okay, we were talking about creating some group swag. How about someone create a Hunt for Read October graphic, with a red CABI in place of the submarine. Underneath the logo can be our motto: "Conn, sonar! Crazy Ivan! "

having been a submarine officer, and having given orderes to sonar from the conn, I would like to be involved in the creation of this. Funny story, when onboard a submarine going out to sea, you are allowed to bring along an "underway cap" to wear in place of the uniform ship's ball cap. Some people brought a cap of their favorite ball club, I brought a Colonial Williamsburg Tri-corner hat. And once underway I learned that the Executive Officer really gets upset if you give orders from the Conn in a pirate voice whilst wearing a 'pirate hat'. "Helm, Sonar, Dive, Ti's be Leftenanant Essig -- the Deck and the Conn be Mine!". "Conn, Xo fix yourself!"

It depends on how short it is.

That rules.

I'll remind everyone that talk like a pirate day (http://www.talklikeapirate.com/) (Sept 19) is only a few short weeks away. Every year I come thisss close to getting divorced... maybe training our toddler to stomp around and fret about his wenches and dressing the baby up like a parrot was a step too far...

No way I could get away with that. My wife wont even put up with my random Conan the Barbarian quotes said in Arnold's voice.

Man, if I had a baby I'd TOTALLY dress it up as a parrot for TLAPD! Then I'd stick it in a pannier and take it on the Metro.

Now where can I get a spare baby? :confused:

So the other day I thought I'd run out at lunchtime and ride to the bank, only I didn't want to bother changing into the full-on bike kit.

I was pretty sure I could ride in the skirt I had on, so it didn't seem like a problem. It didn't occur to me that I can't get ON my bike in a skirt... :D

We should have Talk Like a Scottish Pirate Day. Or Talk Like a Scottish Captain of a Soviet Submarine Day.

Yesh!

My 3-year-old a couple of months ago: "I'm a pirate!"
Me: Oh, do you say "Arghhh!"?
Her: "No, I'm a girl pirate. Girl pirates say 'I'm pretty, I have a dress.'"
