Spring Returns, Get Back On the Bikes!

Here we are, back to the time of year when we start to (maybe a little hastily) don the sandals and shorts. This is also when we start to get excited about the coming season.
We've got a few things going on in the Bozeman bike community that I find especially titillating. The Bozeman Bike Kitchen has a great new space. The Montana Mountain Bike Alliance is actively advocating for protecting the wild lands surrounding us. This summer brings a stage race with Main Street sprints and there's also a 500 mile super endurance race.
We've also got some fun in store. Remember the awesomeness of Bike Polo? Yeah, that's right. It's returning with a vengeance next Wednesday. Show up at the basketball court behind the Hawthorne school. 6pm to start, maybe going a bit later in the summer.
Oh, there's more. Late Summer into early Fall we'll be starting up our Clunker Downhill "races". Get an old cruiser at a yard sale, make it work, and we'll meet up at Moser for some ridiculous fun riding inappropriate bikes on trails and gravel roads.
And don't forget about Rockysprints. Save for a few special events through the year there's only three more. Just imagine drag racing, except in a bar. Instead of explaining it, just check it out here.

Sound good? I thought so.

p.s. There will also be alleycats. If you have to ask, big man...well...just stay tuned.

But, what's a ZJ?

ZJ, isn't that a chassis designation for Grand Cherokees from 93-98?

Oh wait you meant a zip job right? nevermind...

What's an alleycat?

I prefer the XJ's. Can't believe they thought the KJ was a good replacement. Wouldn't mind a WJ for a daily driver though, Or maybe even a nice TJ - but not those silly square headlight havin' YJ's. Really would rather have a J20 more than anything. Know what I mean?

I'm not clear on the details, but I'm pretty sure an alleycat has something to do with your mom.

Stevo, SJs are where its at!

Stevo Kinevo said...

your mom's an old cruiser

Stevo Kinevo said...

yeah TJ, SJ's are pretty cool, but I might rather have an FJ, but not an FJ-3, more like an FJ-60 (I know). Plus at that size, I'd rather just have the ability to put a KX, CR, YZ, RM or what have-you in the back of a J or an M (even better) truck. If I were to stay in the For some reason I'm in the mood for a PBR....

Anybody been mountain bikin'? I'm hesitant to tear up local trails, but I wonder if Pipestone is dry(ish)?

Mr DNA said...

William-
local trails won't be dry for awhile. The first trails are usually Sypes, Sourdough (incl. the singletrack), and Grassy Mtn. And that's usually in mid to late may.
Pipestone is fantastic right now, with a few muddy spots. Helena and Pipestone Pass (Beaver Ponds trail and Toll Mtn trail) will probably be ready in a couple of weeks, barring any serious snow.
