    Any riders or SS'ers wanna ride with my friend?

    My friend Cody is visiting with her boyfriend from the Reno area over the holidays. They're both bringing their SS bikes, but there's a chance they'll bring a geared hardtail. Anyways, she's looking to ride with people, and I can't due to obligations, but I told her there'd be plenty of riders in the Foothills. Anyone planning rides in town over the next week or so?

    They're friendly and fast and not out to prove anything, but they'd like to get in quality hours of base riding each outting: He is a Cat 2 roadie with the UNR team and a Expert mtb racer, and she finished Top 5 in the Xterra National Series and does both road and mtb and triathlons.

    I'd appreciate it, hawking the ride hosting duties on friendly locals.

    I'd recommend flip and RRB as obvious SS riding partners, but they'll be in B-more until mid next week. I'd also love to ride with your friends, but I'm out of town too from Saturday to Saturday and stuck taking only my running shoes.

    That said, Laffeaux, Crash_Burn and SFS will all be in town over the holidays, all are singlespeeders, and all have mentioned that they plan to do some riding over the holidays. Buddha (who is lurking on this thread as I type) also is one of them thar singlespeeders and is a great riding partner. Not sure what his holiday status may be.

    Anyhoo, everyone have a great holiday and ride some for me.

    Yeah, I'll be around all weekend and hopefully riding Sat-Mon (I love three day weekends). There's no way that I can keep up with them though.

    I might be able to help out if they're up for a "normal" paced ride.
    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    Our flight is through Denver so there is a better than even chance that we won't make it out Saturday. If so, we'll be in Boise riding... Oy....

    Would also like to ride

    I'm coming up to Boise for the holidays and would also like to ride with some locals - ideally Sun, Mon, and or Tues. Not SS, but interested in some fun 2hr-ish endurance paced local riding. I'm an xterra guy and moving from sport to expert cross country this year... thanks - Jim

    I'm part of the hang-nail* group, but I'll be around and will definitely need a break from my people. Desperate? PM me.

    *Flip & RRB's excuse for riding at the back of the pack.
    Good times. Noodle salad.

    Parma? You coulda chosen Homedale, Melba, or Marsing since they are closer to Wilson Creek.

    Out in western 2C we got a pretty good dump just like the rest of the valley. I'm still hoping to ride Sunday mid-afternoon out at Wilson Creek. If worse comes to worse I'll just ride the SS up and down Wilson Creek Road.

    1. Verb: Past tense of "to stoke":
    To feed or tend a furnace or fire.

    2. Verb: Past tense of "to stoke": To eat a lot, often rapidly.

    3. Adjective: Extremely happy and excited.

    1. I stoked the fire for most of the night because everyone else was exhausted.

    2. He stoked himself on Mama's good home cooking before returning to the mill for the 3rd shift.

    3. "Man, I am so stoked; I aced that algebra test today and Karen actually smiled at me."

    Also

    Fecked in one way or another (EG. Knackered, Pissed Up, Hungover etc)

    "Mans was well stoked last night"

    Any my favorite:



    all hot n bothered, like being in side the big chimeys of stoke on trent, how it was in the old days you know staffordshire pottery, theres some aweful pictures of the chimneys taken by william blake, it looks like hell its self. its an old english saying probably last used by black country folk before it died out, its still a popular saying in australia. in staffordshire today they use the word "yampy" more, because now the words been branded into australian culture as an australian word

    why a yo all runnin around hot headed
    yeah, well "i'm totally stoked"

    What's really freaky is that anybody would actually feel that way about riding a bike. I'd rather just ride.
