tonight was a crazy night. i met up rex, chris, and angelo at union square to do our weekly central park ride. we ended up taking 6th avenue this time around. i was riding on the very left lane when i hear a loud sound. i look over my right shoulder and all i saw was someone’s bike being dragged by a taxi cab. there were sparks everywhere. i turned back around to find out it was angelo’s bike. luckily he was somehow thrown off the bike or it could have definitely been worse. i am glad angelo is okay and walked away from the accident unscaved. his helmet is cracked but did its job well and his bike is pretty much done. ride safe out there.
i finally had a chance to clean and re-grease my bike last night and i noticed i’m missing the dust cap on the non-drive side. i ended up ordering a replacement but i always hate it when the shipping costs way more than the actual thing you’re ordering. hated it!
i met up chris, angelo, rex, and paulo at union square. we blasted through first avenue going through the tunnel by the united nations. that’s always fun. we made our way to central park where we randomly bumped into the surface crew. a couple of laps around the park and we called it a night. good night.
i met up angelo, chris, macky, and erick yesterday at jay hood wright park. we crossed over george washington bridge over 9w and rode all the way to nyack. we put in a good 60 plus miles yesterday. afterwards chris and i rode to chari to check out their sale. my legs are pretty much done.
i’ve been pretty lazy to bring the leica around with me these past couple of days. there were some pretty eventful stuff worth posting. meeting some people from san jose, blasting through central park at night, bumping into stephen baldwin, and hanging out here…
these past couple of days has been a blur. it almost sort of feel like one long day with a few hours of sleep in between. the highlights has to be the rooftop bbq at iris’ place in williamsburg on friday night, the coney island ride with everybody saturday afternoon, the ace hotel party with yim, novelo, kalin, chuong and ben, and another rooftop after party somewhere in the west village. i have no pictures of the last two since i didn’t bring my camera. as always i’ll just let the picture do the talking.
the clouds finally cleared up and the sun came out. i ran a few errands in the city before meeting up bryan, jason, and alex around east village. we ran into chuong at tompkins park. chris ended up rolling through and we all headed to the banks to meet up everyone else. we crossed the bridge and posted pretty much in brooklyn the rest of the night.
