Holy Schnykies! The Moonlander has landed.

I don't care if you don't care, can't you just care that I care.

If I need to explain, you'll never understand.

Brought to you by the questionable folks at Surly.

This is Moonlander

Which is fatter than Pugsley

Which is fatter than Karate Monkey

Which are all fatter than Jeff O'Gara was when he was a kid.

This Saturday - Getting Rid of Spinner II - River Edition

Lately it has been a trend of mine to start a job in the Springtime that is located some place that is not Decorah.  Trust me, it hurts me just as much as it hurts you.  Well, maybe not quite as bad as it hurts you if you're a bar owner, or a bike repair man, or in the medical field, but it hurts all the same and deserves some kind of recognition.  Last year, people who don't even live in Decorah came to say goodbye, good riddance, and get the hell out.  Last year was an epic series of 2 mile bike rides to Bluffton.  This year, let's get wetter.

Let's Kayak to Bluffton

We'll leave Decorah sometime around 1:00 so those of you who plan to be responsible can get things done while those of us who aren't responsible can rid our hang overs.  We'll drive north of Bluffton and kayak float, paddle and party, eventually getting back out in Bluffton.  

We'll have chicken fries, cheese burgers, deep fired broccoli, and heck maybe a shot or twelve at Randy's.

I will work on getting a trailer to haul all the boats up at once.  
I will also supply around 52-58 cans of Campaign depending on what time we leave.

Invite your friends.

DHPT is invited to Revengance TNR - Tuesday, August 16

TNR: Tuesday Night Ride

There has been a discussion through out most of the summer about a good night for Decorah Folks to com up and see what the Rochester Paved Trail scene is all about.  Given the fact that no single date is good for everyone, we're just going to have to make it this coming Tuesday night.  I would start it out with a party at my place, but then we party too much and there is little riding done, and even less is remembered.

For example: Last TNR at 5:30 p.m. looked like this.

This was my place Wednesday Morning.

Let me know if you're interested, and we'll find places for you to stay.  Driving after a TNR is not recommended, if it's even possible.

The pre-ride starts at Brother's Bar around 6:00 p.m.  Here we talk about our day, enjoy barley pops, and wait for the group to trickle in until 8:00 p.m.  From here, it's on.  Bar hopping, bridge stops, maybe a derby or two, typical bike shenanigans.  A Great Time will be had by all.  Bring a light and let me know if you're interested.

And if you can't make this, you should try to make this:  It's a birthday ride for the hairiest guy you know.  Bill as in the new long Surly Trailer.  I don't know if Ted is making an appearance.  We might have to haul an incapacitated Wookie home on Bill.

There will be a prize for any Decorah folks who can pull off appearances at both events.

No DHPT meeting tonight

I don't know about you, but I'm still recovering from the Nordic Festivities.  No Meeting tonight.

The trailer looked good in the parade.  Thanks to Freidhof, Eric and Emme Clement, High School, and a whole bunch of future Team Folkedahlers for riding along, and Thanks to Captain and his trusty Jeep for driving.

The trailer will be parked in the 48 hour lot.  Talk to O'Gara if you need to get in there.

Time Trial this month on Tuesday the 9th at the Glory Hole starting at 6:30 or whenever you can make it.

Time Trial Enduro this month on Tuesday the 23rd at the Van Peenen Fire pit at 6:30 or whenever I can make it.

Jim Tripp has removed the downed trees on Dust Bowl.

Our next Event will be the Night Shift in October.

Gnome Fest is September 9-11
