Great Trail Ride: Dear Rolf ...

Post by JTyre » Sat Apr 20, 2019 4:25 pm

... I can't say I'm impressed with your pre-sales on this years Great Trail Ride. So far, 12 semi-committed riders. At this time last year, I had pulled in 76 riders. Bro, you gotta step it up!

What we're seeing from you on this is:

When what we need to see is more of this:

Rolf, my friend, sales are obviously not your thing. Come on, at least remind folks of some of last years highlights,

* Lead out by Simon Whitfield and Ryder Hesjedal
* Door prizes
* Free beer and pizza
* Marriage proposals
* Free unicorn droppings
* Unlimited foreplay with the sexiest Man Alive (Alan Clooney)

Dear JT: power corrupts and hierarchies are ethically unjustified.

I envisioned this year's Great Trail Ride to be the manifestation of Tripleshot as anarcho-syndicalist commune. I renounced any and all responsibility for this year's ride after polling and identifying the democratically-established date—thus fulfilling my contribution of labour, freely given.

So in keeping with decentralized egalitarian control: sell away! (Because every great movement still needs a huckster.)

Just getting around to seeing this thread. It's true, I was away, but I was busy. In the pool...

What we're saying is that we don't mind if we have a 'small' group together for this ride, and that we will follow Rolf wherever he leads us...

All well and good Rolf. If you won’t lead us, I’ll follow Jonny Tyre.

I heard his leadership last year was a perfect blend of frivolity, organization, and maturity.

Behold, a cut-scene from last year's Great Trail video, showing JTyre in his glory:

Believe me, with Rolf's permission to exercise our free spirits, we're going to have a blast on this epic ride ...

... especially with Alan providing the soundtrack,
