Re: Chicago Crosstown Classic Ride 2017 -- XTCVIII

I can't wait for I haven't missed any of the Crosstown rides since they started.. I'm almost 100% positive I'm riding both of these events, Crosstown for sure.   big_smile


When I go biking, I repeat a mantra of the day's sensations:  bright sun, blue sky, warm breeze, blue jay's call, ice melting and so on.  This helps me transcend the traffic, ignore the clamorings of work, leave all the mind theaters behind and focus on nature instead.  I still must abide by the rules of the road, of biking, of gravity.  But I am mentally far away from civilization.  The world is breaking someone else's heart.

Haven't missed a Crosstown ride since day one Son !!!!!! You know I'm in!

My issues are work, my girls soccer and my sons baseball. Keep ur eyes peeled for a old school race bike ff. Preferably a loop tail like a DB silver streak, a goose or something cool and affordable. I would definitely appreciate another set of eyes on it for me.cool


If winning isn't everything then why do they keep score?

Re: Chicago Crosstown Classic Ride 2017 -- XTCVIII

I'm already struggling with the decision of what bike/s to bring to town? 2017 Haro Master?  Rides great, but I haven't logged a lot of riding mileage on it (although it's getting banged up from "riding" it doing some old tricks again).  24" Champion is one of my favorite all time riders but I think I'd like to bring something that hasn't been there before.  Possibly my Electra Moto 3i once I'm done making a few BMX changes to it?  Maybe one bike for Mass and one for XTCVIII?
Regardless, I'm really looking forward to this!
