The Passage of a Few People Through a Rather Brief Moment in Time #335 - The March of Progress

01.20.16

One or more persons during a certain period drop their usual motives
for movement and action, their relations, their work and leisure activities,
and let themselves be drawn by the attractions of the terrain and the
encounters they find there.

It's a bike ride.

Started by user nathansnider and user theroyalacademy.

It meets every Wednesday at 8:30pm
at California Donuts #21.
We ride at 9pm.
While we endeavor to return before the last red line trains (around midnight),
it is generally not possible. Please plan accordingly.

On this bike ride, you might expect:
- inconvenient passageways
- oblique strategies
- Oulipian constraints
- disorientation
- reorientation
- "cover" versions of other people's rides, performed with amateurish enthusiasm
- amateurish enthusiasm
- playgrounds, pool halls, bowling alleys, karaoke
- geocaching
- full moon picnics
- traffic median tea parties
- rivers that no longer exist
- smell tourism
- Couchwick v2.0

Furthermore:
- usually 20-35 miles
- usually some hills
- a medium pace (probably not for beginners; certainly not a hustle)
- few stops, short stops
- but we're not in a rush; we don't need to run every light
- victory donuts!

This week:

The March of Progress


We here at The Passage carefully monitor new developments in cycling technology. Better gear yields better performance, and we are nothing if not concerned with how a bike ride unfolds performatively. Doing is being, after all, and we do always strive to, as they say, Just Be It™.

With that in mind, this week we bring to you a ride based around the latest cycling innovation. Nothing is lighter weight. Nothing is more intuitive to use. Nothing lasts longer and yet requires less maintenance. Yes, this week we ride... nothing. Or, as the lucky few who have been able to get their hands on this exciting new gear have come to call it, this week we will be “walking.”

The edge in performance afforded by this amazing leap in technology will allow us to go places we hardly could before. Spending less time thinking about the human-machine interface, we will be able to appreciate our surroundings in greater depth and with more detail.

Step with us into the future of cycling!

(Seriously, zero bike riding on this week's bike ride. We are walking. If you ride a bike to the start, you better bring a lock. Don't expect to walk with your bike; that's not how this works. Distance determined by pace, but certainly less than 10 miles total.)
