When ride my bike to Bellagio fountains, sometimes they'll play that song, "Lone Rider," followed by Elton John's "(This is) Your Song." But it doesn't have to be that way. That's why I ride with my 40oz of Old Milwaukee to keep me company!
I'm into casual pace, not competitive. I have a Diamondback Outlook 2009 "mountain" bike. Smashed my helmet drunk (intentionally), so I'll have to get another when I can afford it. I don't think I need one, though.
Torrey Pines and Charleston. Torrey Pines good. Charleston bad. I don't drive, but I go pretty far. Not interested in exercise. Riding alone can get lonely.
Right now, all days are good, as I'm on unemployment. If a helmet is required, no days are good, as I can't afford one until the end of July, 2009.
I've been biking since the mid 1990's. I do about 100 miles a week, somewhat less in the heat of Summer. My average speed is around 12 mph. I ride on the streets almost exclusively. I have no Idea what train partial or full Centuries are.
I'm into slow rides, not interested in pushing myself physically. If this is not my kind of group, any suggestions? I do the Critical Mass ride usually every month. However, once a month isn't a whole lot.
Hi and thanks for your info on the Air Bar. I have friends coming to vegas 3/4/11 who have never been here and I would love to take them to Air Bar. What nights is it free for locals and how much is it for non locals? Do they check ID? You said to bring your own drinks? Do they let you?
Anything else to take them to for free that you know of besides the outdoor hotel shows?
Hey Cale, You are doing a great job covering for Leo. My heart goes out to all of the singles and families in Vegas who struggle to afford creating a life worth living, while on a tight budget. I am thankful we can share free and cheep things to do, to give our fellow budget friendly neighbors options for a better life.
Hi Cale, Good to see all of your posts ! I am guessing you have taken over the wheel so to speak for Leo while he travels. Thank you for the great ideas on things to do that are affordable in Vegas. I see we are both in Linda's singles group. I really enjoy her variety of ideas. I think the Cesar's pool and the Rio pool are more family friendly and open to the public. My son is one of the DJ's at the Palms pool. He blasts young adult music and they party pretty hard at the Palms.
How was the Hard Rock Friday night?
Welcome to the group Cale. Hard Rock puts on a good show. SHould be a great time.
