To Be Announced...

...doesn't cut it anymore bros.

It doesn't need to be mentioned that the Sunday rides have fallen to the wayside recently. But it is completely understandable why it's happened. Some of us got a call from the hills that we couldn't ignore, others found 50 inches and G-Turns. It's great that everyone's branched off and focused on a style of riding that they really love, but that shouldn't mean that Crankys has to die a forgotten old man.

As much as I'm sure we all enjoy our own little niche, nothing beats catching up with the crew, grabbing a coffee and some food, and going for a laid-back ride and talking shit. Like the good old days (6 months ago?). So, that in mind, I propose that instead of letting Crankys fade to black, we evolve.

How about we set aside the last Sunday of every month to have a good old fashioned Cranky Sunday. I know that's a month away from now, but this weekend is too short notice, and I think it should be either the first or last weekend of the month so YOU DO NOT FORGET!

Any objections?

That isn't to say that we can't hook up more often than that, or plan special Cranky rides like Frankghanastan, but as long as everyone knows that at the very least we all hook up on the last Sunday, then we good.

Wondering if Sunday rides are still happening or a myth ? Completely out of the loop and cranky doesn't get updated anymore...

Was speaking to Benny Tatts and we want to do the event. I know I have been missing with rides cos i've been hanging with the tricksters, but this is something I said I would like to accomplish this year. Its been mentioned a few times amongst us, but nothing has come of it. Registration has closed for the big 250km ride, but is still open for the 240km and 100km ride.

Benny and I are def keen and will probably register by end of the next week, but I thought I should bring it up to see if anyone else is interested. The entry costs are much more than your average alleycat entry, but every public sporting event has some sort of entry fee. Totally understand if you think its too much to pay to ride with thousands of idiots.

Also I know you guys are all hardcore fit and think that if we do it, we should do the most kms or forget about it, but I personally wouldn't be able to ride 250kms in a day on fixed. I say 100kms is heaps and for me is def doable in a respectable time. I also don't want to write off myself for a week after just to do it.

So what do you say? Decisions have to be made real soon cos looks like they are closing entries pretty soon.

I think it could be fun if we rode together and at our own pace like we used to do on Sundays. Have a think peeps...
