This Just In: I'm Out Until September 6th, Happy Labo(u)r Day!

Yep, that's right, the title says it all.  I realize I did pop out for a bit last week, but this is it, my Actual Summer Vacation, as provided for in my contract with Bicycle Snobbing Industries Ltd. LLC. Inc.

You don't like it?  Take it up with the union.

The above notwithstanding, it's fairly likely that posts from me will appear on the Citi Bike and Brooks blogs in the coming days, and if that happens before I return rest assured I'll post a link here to let you know.  I wear many blogging helmets, so even when I'm gone from this blog echoes of me remain.

Other than that though, this is it until Labouring Day.

And with that, I wish you the very best for the rest of the summer, I thank you sincerely for your readership, and I'll see you all back here on Tuesday, September 6th.

Yours in Bicycle Cycling,


--Wildcat Rock Machine

165. But suppose on the other hand that the stresses of the coming decades prove to be too much for the system. If the system breaks down there may be a period of chaos, a “time of troubles” such as those that history has recorded at various epochs in the past. It is impossible to predict what would emerge from such a time of troubles, but at any rate the human race would be given a new chance. The greatest danger is that industrial society may begin to reconstitute itself within the first few years after the breakdown. Certainly there will be many people (power-hungry types especially) who will be anxious to get the factories running again.

Snob, until May 6th?!? That will be a long wait for your next rant.

This Fred is assuming you mean September 6th.

wow,must be really a vacay.........no quiz.enjoy your semi-time off.

BamaPhred said...

Enjoy your uckingfay-ffoay. Having said that, not even a reach-around one question quiz to see if we have been paying attention? I'm going back to the Almighty Church of Eternal Enlightenment and Divine Prosperity until then

Enjoy your vacation! If you need to borrow a pump, you know where to find us.

You pedal-toy lovin' bastards need to stay off my highway until May 6...and then stay off it some more. To celebrate Labor Day why not steal a car and drive around aimlessly for hours on end with the slacked-jawed glassy-eyed look of a lobotomized turd. Stop every so often to buy some useless crap and throw some garbage down your filthy cakeholes. Once you experience this Great American Ritual you will be ready to turn yer bicycle into a coat rack. A new accessory just in time for Fall. Yer welcome.

Whoah, early post! It must be only four in the morning over in 'Murica. But then, Snob has fathered (?) seventeen (17) children, so odds are that a couple of his sprogs are really early risers. Too bad there wasn't time between burping and nappy changing to crank out a quiz, as it was a good week of posts. But then, I did get to ride in the lead peloton, and learned something along the way. I learned that MTB pedals can spark forest fires, which is 100% the dumbest ignition theory on this planet ever. Even spontaneous human combustion has more documentation than that. I guess funding for the CSI: Lower Rock Creek ain't that high, so shit has to be made up. Or maybe they found "D!N!A!" on some hapless rider's soot-covered pedal (dun dun dun!!!) *puts on sunglasses, walks away from explosion*. I learned that when the Swiss cheese apertures line up perfectly, it means that logical cause and effect can be disregarded for the duration. I also learned that communication between humans is difficult, and even more so when different transportation modes create barriers between them. And deploying one's bicycle bell might possibly cause sparks that will light up the countryside for miles around. "*ding ding* BOOOOM!" It was further illustrated that all sorts of fat, angry red-faced gits publicly vent their anti-bicycling bile, unrestrained by religion, sexual orientation and economic status. In non-related news, over 270 people were killed in an earthquake in Italy, Europe's long kinky boot. If Cipo was on site, he probably slipped away from danger quite easily. If this comment offended anyone, consider it "a joke" and I "apologise".

Domo arigato, Mister Robotto.

Wildcat: don't forget your epi-pens if you can afford them.
Have a good vacation.

Been watching you troll the anti-bike, pro-parking/ball sports folks on twitter all week. Was totally prepared for the quiz... Dammit!

Roger Kummert said...

May 6th! That is one hell of a vacation.

Not a typo: 8 months of "retirement practice", a month of blogging and he pulls the plug on the blog's 10th anniversary.

We'll miss you. I love you.

While mtn-bikeen once with my bros I actually did witness with my own eyes a spark from the cleat of the bro ahead which hit a rock in the trail.

So could it start a fire? Sure but quite a stretch to pin it down definitively as a cause.

Have a nice vaca Wildcat. Don't hit the ales too hard.

Tim Joe Comstock said...

I don't get it. I never know what's going on. I want to like this booger, but every time I come here the booger-writer is taking time off. And does that one guy really have a talking dog? It must be a New York thing. It is all quite strenuous, if the truth be known. Brooks? What's that? The suit guys? I really don't get it.

recumbent conspiracy theorist said...

The only other sparks I ever saw was at the mtb trailhead before the ride.

Driving out to Wally World????
Make sure it's not closed.

Pathetic Old Cyclist said...

May 6th??? Snobby sending his kiddies to school and then disappearing until he has to whip them into shape for finals and help him plant his crops next spring.

Possibly Knowledgeable Barney said...

Sparks happen during mountain bro rides but they ain't from pedals, unless somebody made a pipe from one.

Why is Italy shaped like a boot?

Because all that shit wouldn't fit into a sneaker.

May 6? You need a vacation.

My dog is poking me in the ribs, instructing me "ask him, go ahead ask him, ask him if he needs a house sitting service."

So consider yourself asked.

But I'm not providing a reference, list of his food allergies, portable sound system, indoor beach volley ball court with sand, tiki bar accessories, or surety bond.

leroy said...

Dear Mr. Comstock -

My dog asked me to tell you that he's real and he's spectacular.

I have no idea what he's talking about.

As usual.

A parable to accompany yesterday's video.......
A couple have two children, twins. The parents are decent people, so it's perplexing why the twins have such vile mouths. every sentence is peppered with profanities.

The father wakes up one day, totally frustrated, and tells his wife ' If those kids curse once today, I am going to lose it'

Dad goes into the kitchen, both boys already at the table, and he asks the first what he would like for breakfast. The child answers ' Gimme some fuckin' cornflakes, you fucking' asshole'. The father gets enraged, and beats the child bloody, to within an inch of the boys life. Dad then turns to the other child and snorts, 'what then would you like for breakfast?' The child responds ' I don't fuckin' know, but I'd have to be a total fuckin' moron to ask a shit for brains like your for a bowl of goddamn cormflakes!'
