    New Yorkers :: eXXXXXtreme Freeriding This Weekend?

    So I'm coming to da city for the weekend. Get in at 5:30 am Friday and leave 8:30 Sunday evening.

    Since I got suckered into this stupid Zion Freeride Thingy next weekend I figure I should ride my bike at least once in the month leading up to it. Just got my fork back so figure this weekend is as good a time as any.

    Is anyone going to be out riding their too-big bikes this weekend? I won't have a car, but if you want to come pick me up I'll buy you gas money and wuss out constantly. And probably crash in hilarious fashion.

    We could go to that Diablo park place. I hear Mildbill likes it.

    Ideas?

    I'll be riding after work Friday and Saturday in the city. Where you gonna be? Come meet me at work and we'll go play when I leave, about 7:30 on Friday and around 6 on Saturday.

    I usually warm up with a bit of traffic raging then go for some concrete landscaping and maybe fall off a few rocks in Central Park while avoiding gapers walking their dogs. Stop for a beer and a smoke and do it all over again Lights are kinda necessary now (especially a taillight, I have extras if you need), getting dark early ya know.

    If there's anything that JayFrizzo loves more than hucking off rocks, it's doing it in the dark.

    Gravitylover, I can't really ride at night due to shitty peepers. Thanks for the offer though.

    Plakespear, that could be cool. Where do you live? I'm either staying in Brooklyn (W'burg), Soho, or Jersey City.

    Things are still up in the air

    My arm could be twisted into going to Diablo this weekend. Let me know what you're thinking/planning. Won't be much help getting you there though unless you want to ride a train up from the city and meet me.

    Mildbill is a sally and can't handle Diablo and it's 666 EXTREME DEVIL FREERIDING, so he won't go.

    Crashandburned, where do I need to take the train to? If I can't ride with Plakespear that's an option. Metro North Rocks!

    The more I think about it the more of a PITA bringing my bike is becoming. How are Diablo's rental bikes? Are they evil? Or wicked sweet?

    They rent Iron Horse Yakuza Kumicho's for about $80 and then the lift ticket is another $28. Not the greatest bikes, but not bad.

    For the train, Beacon, NY on the Hudson Line or Harriman, NY if you're coming out of NJ.

    FYI I don't live in NYC and it's out of my way to Diablo from my house. Also, if you have to be on a plane at 8:30 Diablo might be a tough trip on sunday, unless yo're flying out of Newark.

    Fuggit, I'm not bringing my bike. Too much hassle. I'll just get drunk and eat street meat. That's pretty extreme.

    Shit, I'd really like to ride around. Gravitylover, anyone at the shop want to rent? Where do you work?

    Diablo is satan's own creation, everyone knows that.

    That said, it's a good thing I'm from MN.

    Edit: Destructed!

    CnB, yeah, I figured as much. But I probably gained 5 pounds in booze and street meat. That should make me nice and stable hucking this weekend.
