Here’s some footage from our first WIPE, sponsored by CRAP and the Extreme Picnicking Society. We rode to McDowell Mountain Park on a Friday evening, ate a giant picnic and slept under the stars. The next WIPE is planned for the evening of Saturday October 18th, we’ll ride to Usery Mountain Park in East Mesa. It’s 23 miles one way.

The rest of the photos are here:

In my head, I hear this as a Socks voice recording

beep… 6:42pm, my bike odometer rolled over 3000 miles. In the middle of the Mill Avenue bridge, on the edge of a dust storm. Nick is riding with me and gave me a high five. …boop boop

Hmm I wonder what that bus’ number was?:

Goodbye STP, it was fun

Sturmey Archer, you weenies. All I can do is hope you listen to me and bring a 3-speed fixed rear hub for me this christmas. It would be so wonderfully uneccessary, underappreciated, and amazing. I’d buy five!

but NOOOOOOOO, you are going to bring out a high end road groupset that looks like carbon Dura Ace. Ever here of the Modolo Morphos shifters? No? Well no one buys them. And unless you’ve got the marketing dollars of SRAM behind you, we’ll see where your road group gets you. Assholes!

Fuck you, I’ll be busy doing wheelies on my fixie.

Cum Gobbling Robot

Bionic Woman
NBC has begun to advertise a new show this fall that seem to promote a robot-friendly world (pronounced ROH-bit, as in North London). Built on an intriguing premise, this new show promises a “journey of self-discovery” and “inner strength from the perspective of a woman that has been altered by scientists, apparently in an effort to extinguish the current human domination of the earth. We will see the main character, a woman, as she “embrace(s) her new life, as the future harbinger of death and the end of mankind. (this premise of the show unconfirmed at time of press, ed.)

When I first saw this ad, what was my gut reaction?
how many loads of cum will it take before her face begins to rust.
