Big Rivah! And some tasty BBQ and bikestuff...

A lot transpired in the last week or so since the last transmission from planet Blackstone. One half of the shop made the trip "all the way" up to the Redbones Bike Party in Somerville. This event was a blast with a ton of bike minded people of every ilk and vice imaginable making an appearance. It was great to see so many familiar NEMBA folks and a host of others in attendance. The raffle prizes were ridiculous; an ANT bikes complete bike, a $500 gift certificate from Geekhouse bikes, Highland Mountain Bike Park prize packs and a whole lot more. The good folks at Harpoon were there to compliment the super awesome Redbones BBQ. Check out the pics from the event, you might see a few people you know here and there. Consider heading up to this event next year as it is a great time, and it is one of the few events where all kinds of cyclists come together in one spot for a few good causes (Massbike and NEMBA).

Now on to the Big River segment of this report... Mike Iafrate, myself and Mike Leblanc headed down to Big River yesterday for some hardtail 29er riding in the hot sun. We rode from the Big Pickle out to I see dead people and Elephant before stopping atop the ridge for some sweet and salty treats. Thanks for the food stuffs! Next time we head to Big River we'll replenish the snacks we hastily scarfed down before hitting up the Burnt Sawmill side of things. The rest of the ride was fun and the post ride burritos at Cilantro were even better. Ride to eat, or something like that...
