busy week... monday we had the city bikes team meeting at my house. 20 or so mountain bikers crammed into a little room, drinking, eating, trying on jerseys, and discussing (very loudly at times) what's going on with the team this year...
tuesday i rode down to pizzeria paradiso in georgetown to hang out at their newly renamed basement bar (bieria paradiso) and sample some malty beverages with the TNS crew... steve has a good writeup of the night over on wrench in the gears. between my own beers and sips of others peoples i managed to add a 1/2 dozen entries to my new beer journal: brasserie dupont saison dupont, van housebrouck kesteal biere du chateau gouden tripel, unibroue maudite, clipper city small craft warning uber pils (handpumped), fullers esb, and a dogfish 60 minute IPA plus rougue shakespeare stout black and tan.
wednesday i finally got out on a mountain bike for the first time this year for a quick sping around fairland with jason and wayne after work. it's been a couple of years since i've ridden there and i was really impressed with the trails. nothing really technical, but nice rolling singletrack. it's only 20 minutes from work, so i'll probably be out there more often as the year goes on and the days get longer. spent the rest of the evening scanning pictures from new york and working on a couple of projects for MORE.
hope the snow holds off long enough this weekend to get a good ride in on saturday morning.
