Cinco

Cinco De Mayo gets started
two days early
Following is a Friday Happy Hour Ride fun quiz, because I am still trying to figure out what the heck happened out there yesterday afternoon...

Kirk didn't like the flower on his helmet because
  1. It had poor aerodynamics 
  2. It made his butt look big
  3. The pink clashed with his yellow Engin bike bike and black spandex
Mike impressed the group by
  1. Riding a bike to the beer tree less than three weeks after separating his shoulder
  2. Doing a a "too good" good imitation of Mike Honcho 
  3. Wearing a pearl necklace
  4. Tequila, because beer and
    mountain biking do not mix
  5. All of the above
People were looking at us weird as we rode to The Beer Tree because
  1. We were riding to a beer tree
  2. Our bikes and helmets were festooned with big tissue paper flowers
  3. We were celebrating Cinco De Mayo on May third
  4. We don't know, nor do we care
The Beer Tree was pruned because
  1. There was one of everything up there and we had run out of ideas
  2. The cans were fading and it was starting to look more like a recycling center exploded than an object d'art
  3. Some people in high places may not have our sense of humor
  4. Fresh Guacamole and homemade
    heirloom tomato salsa
  5. We don't like beer anymore
It is a good idea to ride the bonus loop wearing a sombrero if
  1. You are Irish
  2. The sombrero is from Chi Chi's
  3. It is May 3rd
  4. All of the above
Riding home with a bag full of empty beer cans strapped to your camelback is
  1. A good idea because leaving it in the woods would be inconsiderate
  2. A bad idea because the stale beer leaks all over your shorts
  3. A good idea because the stale beer leaks all over your shorts
  4. Does the pink flower on my head
    make by butt look big???
  5. Something that had to be done
For Friday Happy Hour Rides we draw the line at two session ales (5% or less) because alcohol and mountain biking do not mix
  1. True
  2. False
  3. Huh?
Log your answers here, the winner gets a free mp3 recording of Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass' Spanish Flea (a.k.a. theme to "The Dating Game").

  3. The Beer Tree was pruned because...
    -The beer tree was loved and is now greatly missed. Brougt a bottle of jolly pumpkin beer to share with friends & the tree but all the cans were gone :(

    Riding home with a bag full of empty beer cans strapped to your camelback is:
    -A bad idea, the tree is now lonelier.

    -Hrmm beer and MTB don't mix well, however.....

  4. @Jason it was a hard decision to make, but as you know art is in the eye of the beholder and we knew that some unenlightened soul would see it as an eyesore or evidence of debauchery, instead of seeing it as a sort of living scrapbook that chronicled friendships and good times in the great outdoors. And we know from past experience that it's not fun for anybody when those souls get bent out of shape so we figured we'd play nice and avoid the issue altogether. The good news is that even if they pave it into a parking lot it will always be "The Beer Tree" to us.
