I went on those rides pretty often when I moved down. I hadn't gone for w few months before I moved. I rode a black peugot fixed gear conversion with a white chain and chrome fork and bare drops. It's a SS now with orange bullhorns and I lost the white chain. I ran around with Luis Robles ( 6'7" Puerto Rican) Cooper Barner, John Jarvis and Chris Shortall (looks like a lumberjack and worked at oriental garden.) That was pretty much my crew. Did you ride the Denton Shakedown Alleycat last year? I rode that too. There's a "bike social" at the Hidden Shamrock on N Halsted on Thursday. $1 PBRs. What do you study at the art institute.
I just moved from Denton at the beginning of August. I heard the tuesday night rides are getting 100+ these days. So you're going to SAIC? Rad. Let's get together and ride/grab a beer sometime. 903.445.4689
