Threading is a form of riding that requires expert skill, balance, awareness, and creativity. Threading rides are free form, with rotating leaders. It is a skill game of "follow me if you can". A ride will begin with an agreement of general location. The group will begin to ride in the agreed upon direction - at any time during the ride, any rider (or "threader") may discover a set of obstacles that he/she wishes to engage. Obstacles are inanimate objects (such as road signs, fire-hydrants, gaps in fences, sidewalk features, spacial features...etc). A rider may plan a "route" through a found set of obstacles, and will try to successfully navigate them without touching any of the obstacles or by touching the ground with his/her person. Other "threaders" may choose to follow, modify, increase in difficulty/creativity the discovered route. Discovered routes may be fast or slow, short distance or long distance. However, at no time will a route interfere with pedestrian or vehicular activities. "Threaders" are courteous and mindful. "Threaders" are the gentlemen and lady riders of precision urban cycling. "Threaders" are public performers of expert skill and grace. "Threaders" do not trespass on public property, and will promptly and graciously leave a given area if requested. "Threaders" do not cause damage to any property, and will be held accountable if such an event were to occur. There are no points/scores/prizes - this is a free ride and drops are allowed. Generally groups are between 4-6 riders. However, any group size is allowed. At the conclusion of a ride - a bar will be selected, and drinks will be had. It is not required, but it is customary for a "toast master" to be selected. This toast master is selected by unanimous consent for any reason or criteria. The toast master will then give his/her toast, and the ride will officially be completed....and the drinking may begin.
