Slender Fungus Headquarters to relocate
With the intention of finding more gravel and dirt and a bit more peace and quiet, the Slender Fungus Cycling Association Headquarters will be relocating to the above pictured location. It will be time to train hard for the upcoming Mega Miler known as the Trans Iowa Version Number 8.
Many calories must be burned, lambs eaten and endless nights on the mountains with nothing more than some dry bread and a light jacket. This and only this is the way to finish off the beast for once and for all.
While we are away please continue on with Turbo Tuesdays and some "special" rides. Remember to frown upon the thin tired bikes known as "Cheater" bikes for they go fast because of their ability to slice through the heavens. Drink the elixirs that keep us alive. Ride at night because that is when it's right. Wear wool and take a flask. Cause mayhem, start a fire, eat some delicious food.
I have alway enjoyed your company and this and only this has helped me through it. As the days get shorter and the nights get longer I long for the whiskey and the sugary tea. I remember my lonely rides with the long gone Hellmut. The endless nights that saw us welcome the morning. The burning sensation in the eyes when the sun would emit its first rays.
The Fruit Loop, also known as "the destroyer", the ride that left my limbs numb for months. The Gypsy Caravan, the funnest ride of all time. The memories are endless, the jokes too many to list.
I will remember you always as I suffer alone at altitude.
