Weird crash? Not to be morbid, but do tell.

Im glad, albeit the mishaps that really just add to the story, that everyone made it out in one piece (tho not all bike parts in one piece) and was able to get home one way or another (that picture above is legendary). Flat tires, broken chainrings, bugs in eyeballs, cramps, chaffing, and a pretty wierd crash right in the 3F parking lot. The weather did play some cruel tricks on us...punishing winds in, threat of rain the entire way down (tho i did get sunburnt somehow), and then the real rain and temp drops. yowza! But we persevered! Thanks, everyone for coming out. We def need to do a ride again soon. Thats what summer's for!!
Eric - I have your jacket and I sent you a message with my info. Thanks again!

I think I gave it to a dude.

I'm hoping this person, or someone else who knows who it is, will see this and let me know where I can go to get it back.
Also:

haha nice shoes jerk..oh thats me!
One guy's (forgot his name) foot came unclipped from the pedal causing an irradic swerve to the left slamming right into Lindays rear wheel making her go completely airborne popping of the bike at a perfect 45 degree angle flying for a few feet. Luckily no one was injured (i dont think).

Eric, Sorry bout your spill by the bridge. I saw ya get up and seemed ok, so I continued the chase. I never caught em so I continued up the lakefront until I was beat and hit the metra myself. Fun stuff, but that wind at the end killed me...shot at the bar, that helped.

I had a great time as well, thanks to everyone for meeting up with me.

I finished my evening in typical sub-optimal fashion. I decided to ride all the way up to Diversy and Clark to meet up with some friends since it would have been early enough to join in with their festivities. First, I took a little tumble by the bridge, then while getting closer to downtown it started raining again. So, being very wet with not enough dry clothes to change into, I threw in the towel and headed to the LaSalle street Metra station and hopped on the 8:45 back south to home. On the train I fell asleep for a while and woke up with the announcement that the train was pulling into the Midlothian station, a full 7 stops past where I was supposed to get off. So I get off there and just as I step out of the station the rain and wind pick up again to make the extra 7 miles I had to ride back north extra fun. I grabbed a big ass burrito just before I got to my place, dumped the bike in the basement, hiked up to my 3rd floor apartment (never had those stairs been so painful!), stripped out of the wet clothes, took a hot shower, annihilated that burrito, slammed my remaining beer and passed out. Roughly 58 miles was my total as best as I can figure.

I don’t know what we did to deserve that weather, and the wind… reversing itself on us was just cruel! Regardless, I enjoyed the day and it was great to meet all of you. Thanks again for picking me up and definitely keep me in the loop for the next ride!

Oh, and someone has my rain jacket...
Oh maaaan...I didn't think anything else could go wrong!!! That's bummer! I hopped on the train at 95th street and the second I got off the train I downed a giant piece of pizza...Went home and passed out on the floor in the middle of my kitchen...got up and went out till 7am. My legs were like jello! And only one little bruise from my little collision! All in all, had a great time guys! Lets do another soon!!
