The Threat of the Multi-headed Beast

Who turned on the lights?
If it wasn't obvious from the turnouts to Fix Up Look Sharp and Roller Racing (let alone the rapid rise of the dark forces) this summer is looking to be a good one.

I just updated/corrected the date for the Mixer below (1st Nov, thanks for asking) but in the negotiations of when it could be we realised that the next month is packed more full than of biking goodness than is full of random lurkers.

Coming Up:
30 Oct - Death Becomes Her - All Girls Alleycat
1 Nov - Cranky Sundays/Sugar Spokes Mixer
3 Nov - whats the bet someone sorts out a ride/bbq for cup day?
6 Nov - Pony Bikes Movie Night!
8 Nov - Ladies Who Leisure
13 Nov - Psycho-X
20-21 Nov - Track World Cup
21 Nov - Ring Of Freakin Fire Alleycat/Events/Roller Racing
26-29 Nov - Bike Film Fest
Late Nov - The Revival Melbourne Premiere
Early Dec - Drag Races

This is your chance people... you wanted to get out there and have fun on your bike, now you have it. Don't mess it up. ;)

Man, I don't know about you, but after checking out the blog I want to go plaster my bike in dead cow.

Bennys new whip



Slowly creeping forward

THE REVIVAL/KEEP ON KEEPIN' ON from morehartfilms on Vimeo.

Silly rabbit... tricks are for kids...

Melbourne premiere coming... soon. I'll need help.

That old fashioned style

Cranky Sundays and Sugar Spokes would like to present:
The Bike Mixer

The idea is simple... taking a cue from the sockhops and 'mixers' of the 50s where young ladies and gentlemen were introduced in an informal situation we thought it'd be great for the two rides to get together and actually meet one another properly (rather than the sideways glances across the room etc).

The basics of the plan are for the two rides to meet up at an agreed location for a bbq/picnic. We go for a variation of our normal sunday ride, we meet the ladies who will do their own ride there. We have an old-fashioned good time...

It'll give both rides a bit of a social crossover and it'll give a few of the crankys boys who have 'better halves' a chance to encourage them to come out. It's unfortunate they know us, but maybe they'll meet some other ladies who like to ride?

I'm chaperoning so be on your best behavior ;)

The date is Sunday 1st November [original date now confirmed again]
Location will be suitable for all parties - and will suit picking up ladyfriends/wives if they dont join us for the main ride.
Shine your shoes and slick your hair...

roll, roll, roll your bike... sprinting down the clock

this sunday (yes i was typing too quick)
east brunswick club
lygon st, east brunswick

if you've been before you have a little taste, if you havent, top up your gear inches or line up a borrowed ride and come smash it in the easiest way outside putting training wheels on your dura-aces.

prizes from cycle underground, rays bike shop, brunswick CC and a few others... bragging rights free with entry.

i'll be getting off a plane shortly before it starts [heading straight there], so can someone lead the ride up to the pub?

get there on time to warm your legs up, have some practice runs on the rollers if you are nervous new to them.

Looking Sharp...

I don't know about you guys, but I miss last Sunday.

Thanks to everyone from Crankys who lent a hand, raced, watched, whatever. It's a damn shame that the Cranky team of Benzy, Ben and Trig-star didn't place third as they should have. Next time we'll give you lanyards for the manifestos. But I guess second place with Nik, Pip & Cale was kind of a Cranky team, amirite?

Here's a few shots from Fix Up, and once I've found an online home for it, I'll link youse up to the full album.

Don't forget folks, this Sunday, 3pm, Cranky Sundays need to dominate!
