The Passage of a Few People Through a Rather Brief Moment in Time #251 - Readin Ritin Rithmetic

05.28.14

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),
but often it is not possible.

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:

Readin Ritin Rithmetic


The halls will soon be empty. The final bells will ring. The books will be placed on
the shelf, not to be touched again until fall. Yes, the school year is almost over
and soon the kids will be outside playing.

On The Passage, we play outside every week. Yet we are also learning,
approaching the city streets with open eyes and open minds. We are curious.
But there are some things that one learns best in a classroom environment.
So this week, before the academic year draws to a close, we seek instruction
at school -- several schools, in fact.

BYO pencils and books; we'll see if we can wrangle up some teachers to give us
dirty looks.

(25 miles; a few elevation quizzes; no extra-pavement credit)

All cities are geological;
you cannot take three steps
without encountering ghosts
bearing all the prestige of their legends.
