    I usually park at my dad's law office at the corner of Nueva and Main. It's a very convenient place to park with about 6 available slots but getting to it tonight might be a little crazy (as will all of downtown). Charlie and I also discussed last night possibly starting at La Tuna. I plan to try the office first but if that doesn't work, then resort to La Tuna. Feel free to give me a shout at tree too 5 oh to 6 fife around 8PM and we can coordinate.

    Take the So Alamo exit off 35. Go straight or right(whichever) at the Probandt intersection & La Tuna will be on your Rt side just past the tracks.

    See youts guys there!

    I decided that I would just ride it in. I'll swing buy Main and Nueva and possible la tuna on the way. Otherwise I'll see ya'll at the Alamo. It will be my first ride on a fixing, so if I don't stop on the first pass, just wait and i'll circle around when I figuire out how to stop the thing.

    Nice little write-up in today's paper about this ride. The author was pretty cool as she too saddled up and joined us on last month's trek to Woodlawn Lake. I got a chance to speak to her quite a bit during the ride and got a follow-up phone call, but I declined to be interviewed (she did briefly mention the music trailer). At the time, I wasn't sure where she was taking the article and there was plenty negative, or at least, unflattering things that she could have written about. In the end, I'm glad it went farely well.

    On that note, this Friday evening, once again, in front of the Alamo.

    I enjoyed the article. It is good to show another side to cycling. I understand your reluctance to be interviewed as several of the people quoted indicated a disregard for traffic laws. The photographs in the newspaper were good. I don't know why the online version of the story wouldn't have photos.

    Raise your skill level to the level of the trail, donít bring the level of the trail down to your riding level.

    Don't mind me, I'm just along for the ride.

    Maybe if they included photos, people would stop subscribing to the print edition and there goes ad revenue.

    Yeah, I was kinda bothered by some of the quotes. It presents itself as a lawless or at least scofflaw kind of ride, one that doesn't bode well for cycling safety or cycling rights advocacy. I mean, OK, lets ride at 9PM on a Friday night where people are more prone to go out drinking. Oh yeah, lets do this with no helmets and likely no lights either. Oh yeah and let's go drinking ourselves too! (Hahaha, yes, I KNOW I am being hypocritical here. )

    Fortunately, the author left out the drinking part, or at least only subtly inferred to it with the "Kwik Trip beverage stop" and Angies Patio destination. Better yet, she omitted entirely the imbibing at the Woodlawn Lake pier stop (including some idiot handing out shots of Patron tequila) as alcoholic beverages are prohibited there.

    I just hope some dudley do-right doesn't read the article and think the event is family friendly or suitable for all ages.

    Last night's ride was EPIC! Three stops including a private party we were invited to crash, the World's Largest Buffalo Nickel (and the VFW post right next door), and the SWC Voodoo Lounge. The latter stop, the bar manager yelled out something like, "all you cyclists rock! Step up to the bar for a shot on the house!"

    OK, so it was bad tequila (really bad tequila for this agave snob) but the sentiment was definitely felt and there was plenty of eye candy to go around.

    Afterward, several of us rode to IHOP on Broadway for breakfast. The last of us rode back to our cars well after 3AM.

    Sorry, I forgot to bring my camera so no pics, but we'll be doing our own mojo stylie version next Friday as it'll be First Friday! Come check it out first hand.

    The higher end boutique brands have their own dedicated, specialty growers so won't be affected very much (just like when the agave blight hit in the late 90s wiping out a majority of the crops). What gets affected and hit hard by supply shortages are the cheap $15 tequilas (which end up becoming $25 bottles) that resort to using agave blends (akin to Mescal) and are the types that wind up being given free to thirsty cyclists in back alley bars.

    /Bump

    Sadly, I won't be able to make Friday's ride afterall. I'll be out at Camp Eagle working registration for the TMBRA Fall Season Opener.

    Those who are planning to do the Alamo ride can still park at the law office if they wish.

    Have fun, I hear Mark is planning a screening of a cycling film with the assistance of the guys who run La Tuna's Slab Cinema. Ought to be interesting and fun as always. Damn hate to miss it, but I gotsta do what I gotsta do.

    Give me some details, as I am too lazy to peruse the thread. This sounds promising, as my wife is out of town and my Friday night is free
