This was such a cool challenge and I never did it. But I just bought a smart phone so I can take pictures with something smaller than my iPad, so maybe it's not too late.

Hello! I did this challenge by going on a Tweed Ride last weekend!

Oh, and I've totally derailed your challenge.

"So the challenge for September is this: do something exotic! Ride in a place that you've never ridden before; ride in a group ride like Critical Mass; ride in a costume ride; ride in the woods. Whatever is something that you've thought about doing but never got around to, go and ride it!"

Gotta figure out what that's going to be for me, but it's a great challenge.

Ah, SKIRNIR, I'm so sorry. Theft always sucks, but losing a beloved bike seems so much a personal attack.

MISSG, I have to do that ride! What fun! If it's August, I might still be off work for the summer, and I just had a favorite colleague move to Cleveland and one of my grad school roommates lives in Cleveland - people I need to visit. I can just see you as Mighty Mouse - that is brilliant!

SKIRNIR, how terrible and frustrating. I'm really sorry. A U-lock is definitely a good investment. I also have a cable that is wrapped wire and at least half an inch thick. I have one that has at least three spots where someone has tried to cut it and failed.

Grebjack, here in Cleveland they have a Superhero costume ride every year. At least 300 participants. Last time I went as Mighty Mouse. It was a lot of fun!

Sounds fun! I'm doing a 35K on the very last day of August so I guess that won't count, but I'll think of something else!

Sorry to hear about your stolen bike...I've had a few stolen, it's maddening!

*whine moment* I can't join you all until I obtain a new bike. 1.5 months in San Jose, California and my 3 year old comfort Fuji bike was stolen. They cut right through the chain that I had the bike tied up with in my apartment's basement garage. The apartment complex has cameras on the main entrance of the garage, but not on bike racks. Trying to decide how to obtain a new bike and make sure it isn't interesting enough to a thief to have it stolen too. My husband says a U lock chain is uncuttable so will probably be getting one. I find myself being a bit more paranoid and maybe a bit more distrusting of people.

Wait, costume ride? I've never heard of an event that involves cycling in costume. Can anyone suggest one? I love an excuse to dress like a fool!

Greetings, ladies!

I have been MIA--rather unmotivated to talk biking when I haven't been able to GO biking! But it's time to put that behind me. And time to think about a September challenge! September is usually a wonderful biking month--it's not as hot and muggy in most places.

So the challenge for September is this: do something exotic! Ride in a place that you've never ridden before; ride in a group ride like Critical Mass; ride in a costume ride; ride in the woods. Whatever is something that you've thought about doing but never got around to, go and ride it!
