Re: Discounts at Local Bike Shops

For a bit of historic perspective there was explicit discussion when 3S started that we should not affiliate with a particular bike shop as other clubs have done in the city.

Fenderless Freaks should be shunned! Take the diagram to the bike shop and don't leave until your bike looks like the illustration.

Re: Sunday Dec 13 LSD

LAUDING, SUPERIOR, DISCRETION = LSD

The crap on the roads was scary enough in the afternoon light. Makes me shiver thinking of it in the dark with a pack of crazed crew thinking "TTFU".
