Intergalactic Single Speed Championships: Amante San Rio Version

Intergalactic Pilots, space warriors and other misfits:

I'm pleased to announce that the 2005 Intergalactic Single Speed Championships - the 7th running of this historic event – will commence at 6 pm this Thursday, December 15, at Boulder Cycle Sport - home of Pilot Dubba – located at 4580 Broadway in Boulder, Colorado, planet earth. The event will begin with the Hot Totty prologue at the Amante Coffee Shop, wind through the desolate plains and hillsides of the northern frontier - all along a magical white carpet ride of smooth packed powder under the last full moon of the year. Oh yes! We will zoom our way through the suburban empire, striking fear into the hearts of the souless, before finally making our way to the Spanish outpost of Rio Grande, where we will celebrate the evening away, Moss Isle style, with the help of a few Margaritas. Along the way, there will be many dangers - death from freezing being foremost – and unforeseen challenges, including where to stash your flask while particpating in the derby event. Be prepared for a real singlespeed mountain bike adventure on snowy trails in remote locations. Bring a light that will last at least 2 hours (we should be able to bring crippled crafts in via moonlight and veteran pilot savvy after this point). We suggest mounting fatter tires on your craft to negotiate the snowy, desolate landscape. More dispatches will be announced soon. May the force be with you.

kick ass event...

This was my virgin intergalactic single speed ride, and of course we froze our asses off! The vibe was not to serious (ghost riding for disatnce, crash derby, and short track race, plenty of XXX). We had an eclectic mix of of riders of course (maybe 30), and I can say even if I move back to AZ I will be back for more fun in '06. Personal side note: I got to ride around buzzed on a single speed with one of my "heros" travis brown on his hot pink trek one-off 69ner.

Cool people on a cold nite, finishing with ritas and chips and salsa how ironic.

With out no cold, tired, and misrable there would be no warm, rested, and happy!!

Great riding and despite of the cooler temps I actually managed to take the gloves off for a few snaps.

First a plug for Boulder Cycle Sport:



...where we all (about 40 or so) met up



First regroup after a couple of flats



...and Jägers!



I spotted his cyborg among all of the pilots:



After the regroup the pilots navigated through difficult terrain at the foothills



Not sure what is approaching here, but anything can be expected at an Intergalactic Single Speed event in the light of a full moon.



Happy pilot!



This is still on the way out. The ride back was exclusively guided by the light of the full moon; no lights.



A little racing...



with a mid-race switch of direction:



Bunny hopping 1-on-1





...and finally post ride beverages!
