It’s On!

In Beer, Local, Local Rides, Training on October 18, 2009 at 5:30 pm

It’s time, once again, to prepareth thyself for the pain, suffering and free beer quaffing of the Monday Night Heavy Metal Fitness Ride!

While Keith scours the back alleys and dark underbelly of Austin’s evil world of bike thieves, searching for his lovely missing steed, the Metal ride must go on. I’ll be calling out the directions this week with the help of the usual suspects. Our route, thus far, is a mystery. Possibly the traditional south route or maybe the “Route of Timaeus” from last week. Who knows.

Here the lowdown:

The Heavy Metal Fitness Ride departs the Lamar Pedestrian Bridge, Monday’s at 7:30 pm. Sharp. Expect a reasonably fast pace, covering 20 – 25 miles on an urban route in the dark.  Afterwards, it’s to the Jackalope to enjoy free beer, heavy metal madness, half-priced pizza and happy hour ($2.00 wells) all damn night.

Ride what brung ya. Road, mountain, bmx, cruzer, fixie, whatever. Metal Fitness is an equal opportunity ride and not limited to roadies.

Last time I heard, you’re mother won’t be attending, so you’ll need to bring water, lights, tube changing necessities, a lock, your id and TIP MONEY if you’re drinking. You might even check the route map. I wear a helmet as the ride is fast, urban and in the dark. Yes, it’s a Heavy Metal ride but we rather you didn’t bang your head. Remember. Head injuries slow rides. And you don’t want to slow down a Heavy Metal Fitness ride. Now do you?
