ok i admit it!....

Yeah. I miss riding in the winter!

Here in the Dr. Mambohead Auxiliary Analog Laboratory our tame gutter-gnomes have been hard at work for the approaching Winter season... They've washed all the fleece... Dealt with the Mt. Skidmore of long underwear. Their latest fixation?
Santa!!

Q: Has anyone bicycled "Toys for Tots"? Could we? lo, should we (dare we?) see if we could bike along w/"Toys for Tots"?!?

Think of the cargo bike fun!

any interest?

too scary?

Look, i ain't sittin' around. Brothers and Sisters! The time is now! Only one more full Season remains until official Winter Biking fun begins!!!!

Epilogue:
What's next for Dr. M?...

Sources say the gutter gnomes are lobbying the FDA for approval of a bagel schmeer that is ALSO a tire/tube patch!!!

Toys for tots is more fun than words can describe!

You're talking about the motorcycle ride on Western Ave in December, right?

Maybe you already know this, but Amlings Cycles has a ride for bikes planned on Friday, December 14:

And here is a link to the web site for the motorcyle folks which is scheduled for December 2:

I was referring to Amlings cycle ride :)

OK, I am down with the idea, but are you proposing 'official' participation, or crashing the paradel; and would the expectation be that the motorcycles just pass the bikes?

yeah! mass up with them! i have seen the toys for tots ride several times. always from the sidelines. i dig the spirit and i dont see why they would not want us in the mix. i had heard some bicycles have rolled with it. are they going to turn us and our toys away?

when else can we roll western av with so few cars?

as i saw, a couple waves leave the south side, we could mass up with an early wave and head to the armory.

amlings too! why not!!!!?! it is gonna be a great bike winter!

dunno! is this a stuation where forgiviness is easier than permission?

the cops are already there corking intersections

how often do we get to ride that much of western without cars!

I guess a next step in answering this question would be to find out what one would be committing to with an "official" entry in the parade.  If the entry were on behalf of Bike Winter (um . . . do I have the banner?) there could be some funds available if there are any costs to cover.

h i will look into this tomorrow. maybe a great fit with working bikes?

Cool, let me know. Not sure how much excess organizational capacity WBC might have at the moment.

true dat.. re: capacity

TfT's board meeting is tonight at vfw near argo, 63rd w of harlem. I spoke with one of their honcho's... at first he summarily said 'no' but then?... invited me to submit the idea as new biz at their meeting... where he felt they would likely say no.

the harley marine corps event guy invoked the holy names of insurance, liability... registered vehicals... etc etc as to why we possibly could not ride.

born to be wild? i guess.

ok, now i am bird-dogging this. if anyone wants a piece of the fun? i am going to their meeting. pls co-ordinate with me.

h-may i speak as a rep of the 'bike winter' family?

thanks

worst case? you and i roll up to the armory with a couple toys moments after they relinquish western av

as our beloved kin get mowed down by cars with equal results?.... i feel we need to do more 'interfaith' stuff like this
