Alas, I won’t be able to make it to this weekend’s 10th Annual Homie Fall Fest because I’m heading up north on vacation later this week. Alas? Who am I kidding? Minnesota’s north shore is pretty much my favorite place on the planet, and that’s saying a lot since I’ve seen quite a few great places on this planet.
For those interested however, see the attached flier for the Homie Fall Fest. What is the Homie Fall Fest?
It is a singlespeed rally in the finest of Minneapolis tradition. There will be a lot (and I do mean a lot) of singlespeeders. Lots of beer. A derby or three most likely. Lots of laughs. Some gnarly bit of trail. Good chance someone will get hurt, but not necessarily seriously. A beer bong has been known to make an appearance. Lots of costumes. Some costumes will be more stimulating and/or disturbing than others. The cops may or may not come at some point.
All in all, a fine event with a historic tradition. See the flier. Have some fun. Don’t wear your heart rate monitor. Don’t bring a GU packet. Don’t bring anything that might trick you into thinking that this is actually a race. Because, that is the one thing I can guarantee you it isn’t!
If you go, enjoy it for me…while I enjoy the north shore for you!

I love being outside. I prefer to ride on dirt. Or snow. If I was born a hundred years earlier I might have been a polar explorer. There's a great natural world out there to see, smell, taste, listen to, and experience. Life slows down out there and the distractions we've created will disappear if you let them. Give me a backpack and let me go.
