This is a shameless attempt to save the the most advanced civilization in
history from imminent self destruction by eliminating carbon emission,
dependence on foreign sources of fuel,obesity, hypertension and diabetes.
Cycling accomplishes all those things at once and helps us develop a better
understanding of ourselves, each other and our relationship to the cosmos.

Oh, horse puckey!
I like to ride bikes, have been doing it all my life.
The rest of that crap is just a fringe benefit,
and the blogosphere gives me a chance to share my interior
monologue with virtual rather than imaginary friends.

The fall version of Chi town vintage porn!

There is nothing quite like a vintage bike ride to bring out the porn stars.
Like normal pornography, there are no real rules,
just the need to stimulate saliva and elicit catatonic stares.
At the fall version of the Chicago vintage bike ride, chrome was the new black.
I don't remember seeing so much chromed lugwork at one event.
It seemed to be everywhere in all nationalities.
Of course the leather fetish was 
satiated and well represented.
Nations around the world were represented and
 the lot of us battled a stiff wind to ride the lakeshore trail
 south to Promitory Point where we collected 
and rode back to the Loop and over to our host's
 upscale urban retreat near Wicker 

  Mark B's refurbished building is a
 quintessential example of gentrification.
  Beautifully decorated with modern African art 
to decorate the greatest post ride feast I have ever seen.  
He had roasted about 15 lbs of beef tenderloin served with a selection of rolls and toppings with an Asian salad and wine and beer and wine and beer along with some homemade pastries.
It was an afternoon to remember and Mark set the bar pretty high for any future hosts.
