Description

An annual festival of balderdash on bicycles.

 

It is perhaps easiest if I just start with the ground rules for this year's ride. 

 

1 - All participants must ride a big-wheel bike, also known as a Penny Farthing.

2 - All participants must laugh openly and lustily at the correct moments (as indicated by on-ride cue-cards) and not to snicker unless directed to snicker.

3 - You will be asked to state your political affiliations and agree to a thorough vetting process to join the ride, which may or may not involve rendition, colored eye-drops, blood work, contact with everyone you have shared air with, etc.

4 - All riders must do a front wheeled wheelie during the entire ride.  On their big wheeled bike.

5 - No one associated with this ride is in any way responsible for the likely death, maiming, mauling, electrocution, prosecution, expulsion, implosion or vulcanization that is certain to arise from one's participation.

6 - There will be a strict limit of hyperbole on this ride.  And its description. It is never, ever allowed 200% of the time.

7 - No sarcasm will be used in any way during the promotion or execution of this ride.

8 - The ride is free but of your own free will you bequeath all of your worldly possessions to Lee Diamond, the organizer of this very beneficial and mind-opening ride.

9 - You will report all expenses on Form 27-A; Amendatory Affable Affidavit.

10 - You can't really blame this ride on Obama or Obamacare.  We've been at this nonsense for longer than that's been around.

Jeff as long as it wasnt a big American Flag thong you are fine. :)

I will be attending this ride. I am not on Spring Break and I will not be in Colorado.

OK, I think I might need clarification on the thong thing.  Would it be considered patriotic if it had (a tiny part) of the flag of some other nation on it?  If not, I may still qualify for this ride.

Does it include a viewing of a Spaghetti tree imported from Switzerland?  Or at least a helping of said Spaghetti.

Jeff, you can never do this route enough. The Mountains are beautiful in Spring.

Section A-2 in Subsection 4: You must be wearing pre-approved balloon pants or "Z-Cavariccis" and do the Hammer Dance to MC Hammer's "You Can't Touch this" on cassette. CD's or MP3's must be preapproved in writing by the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy on form 32-ii .

I already did this route.  But what the hell, I might go this time, too.

This ride has so many rules! Found these in the small print!

Section 7.02-1 Anyone that has worn a patriotic thong may not attend.

Section 7.02-2 Anyone with an ironic profile picture may not attend.

If I can make it I might just meet you at the ferry.

Love the route, but I notice we're not gonna do the poles this time?

Also, happy start of STD awareness month!
