The Passage of a Few People Through a Rather Brief Moment in Time #174 - Decelebrate

11.14.12

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.
We'll endeavor to return before the last red line trains (around midnight).

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
- 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:

Decelebrate


A bike ride is a multifaceted, holistic experience. There are sights
and sounds and smells. We pass over, under, around, and through. Ideas
are formed and connections are made. Taking place in an unpredictable,
public, urban environment, the constituent parts of a ride are
innumerable and, ultimately, impossible to completely control -- even
if one would want to do so. Thus, each route is a balance between
certain experiences which can be scripted and moments which will
simply unfold as they will. We proceed experimentally, attempting to
draw focus by limiting the variables.

So, what are this week's limits? First of all, we shall keep it quite
flat. Second, the course we take will be almost entirely paved. And
finally, above all other concerns, under no circumstances will we
celebrate anything of any kind.

Because, really, all the celebrating we've been doing lately has been
totally out of control, has it not? People are getting turned off by
all the celebrations -- the holidays and anniversaries and birthdays
and the quincea├▒eras; the cakes and the candles and the party hats
(oh, the party hats!). Too much! Enough already! Make it stop! Let's
have a little decorum, people. Seriously.

(However, at around 35 miles, the total distance we shall cover both
is and isn't "limited," depending on what you take that to mean.)
