The Passage of a Few People Through a Rather Brief Moment in Time #248: The Brass Menagerie
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 the fifth year of this bike ride, you might expect:
- more inconvenient passageways
- more full moon picnics
- perhaps more "cover" versions of other people's rides, performed with amateurish enthusiasm
- certainly more amateurish enthusiasm
- pool halls
- bowling alleys
- dance parties
- imaginary histories
- scavenging for fun and sustenance
- more geocaching
- more oblique strategies
- more Oulipian constraints
- traffic median tea parties
- A medium pace (maybe not for beginners; certainly not a hustle)
- We're not in a rush; we don't need to run every light.
- Maybe some distance;maybe some hills
- Victory donuts!

Do you like to look at animals, but worry that you will get bitten or scratched or gored? Do you wish that they

detail and realism, we can absolutely promise that you that none of them will bite, scratch, gore, shed dander, or
move. They thus present none of the hazards of real, living animals, and you may admire them in complete
25-ish miles (perhaps a little more, if we are making good time); no hills of any significance; maybe a stairway or
