Twas the night before #BikeSchool
And all thru the house
Not a creature was stirring
Not even a mouse
The cables were strung past the headtube with care
In hopes that Prof @greg_loper soon would be there
The #BackRow was nestled all snug like some #Freds
While tweetstorms of #Tacos danced thru their #Threads
And @twittyboyd in her 'kerchief, and @egggman in his cap
Has just parked their sus, back from gnar #braap
When back on the track there arose such a snitter
They knew by the sound - the Fastest Hour on Twitter
Back on their bikes, clipped in in a flash
Feathered the brakes, avoided a crash
Sun shone on dust of the just-ridden track
Settling thick on his dry #Camelbak
Thru that dust cloud to their eyes did appear
A full carbon fattie and a fixie (one gear)
With sun-weathered pedallers so lively and quike
They knew in a flash, it must be @bikerly & @lovingthebike
More rapid than SRAM Eagles their enduro rigs came
And they whistled, and shouted, and called them by name
O'er top of the step up, thru the rock garden
Just like the roadies, the fuck up we'll harden
As mud clots that off the #CX wheels fly
When they come to an obstacle & jump up sky high
So up off the double those rad pedallers flew
With frame bags of goodies and a burgeoning crew
And then in a twinkling was heard a small ping
A mad grunted "Damn! I've broken some thing."
Then someone said "It's only a spoke.
You've 31 more. Keep shredding the stoke!"
So dressed in some lycra and non-kit type garments
They mashed off on flats, heeding their Garmins
Bundles of gear on each Thompson post
#BikeCampers all, in search of a host
Their flasks, how they glinted. Their growlers, so very
Full of fine ale, waiting to share-y
Their laboring lungs, a forge needs such bellows
And the beards on some chins, yes sturdy these fellows
And smooth-faced others, no slackers these shes
Flowing sweet lines thru rocks, shrubs, & trees
All of fair face and nary a belly
Busy off shredding, not watching some telly
Happy and fit, right jolly and keen
Their travel mode modern, sustainable, green
From winks of their eyes and quick nods of their heads
@twittyboyd & @egggman knew there was nothing to dread
They stopped in a glade and went straight to their work
Setting up glamp, hot chicken jerk
And laying her finger aside of her nose
@twittyboyd snotted like some farmers blows
With that they all jumped on their steeds at full stride
And set off with cheers for a quick sick night ride
And I heard someone say ere they rode out of sight
Happy #Bikeschool to all, 8pm CST every Thursday night!
