…on being magyarul

Posted in Bicycles by yoshi on September 9, 2010

i used to study and live in Budapest… one of the first things i learned to say was “szia, en amerikai diák vagyok” = “hello, i am an american student.” bahahahahhha!

…én elvét Magyarország (i miss Hungary)

just saw these photos somewhere (sorry i forgot from where, its been in my draft for a while oops):

…on summer bike rides to the beach with friends

Posted in Bicycles, Travel and Trips by yoshi on July 10, 2010

yesterday i got an email from suz to come join nike stadium on a bike ride to fort tilden with some friends (including nish, kyle, and the bridgerunners crew), including most of the people from my last bike ride around the boroughs. anyone and everyone was welcome!

we all met at 6pm at the stadium then rode over to manhattan bridge, through prospect park, pit stop at farrell’s bar (hands down THE COLDEST bud on draft – no lie!), up through flatbush, over that one bridge, and finally arrived at fort tilden (i hadn’t been there in almost 2 years since the accident!).

when we got to fort tilden, there was a much needed food/drink stop over at maria’s truck hahahah – 50 flavors of milkshake?! YES PLEASE.

it was getting dark so we rode quickly over to the beach where we had some fun in the water… it was SO NICE. it wasn’t chilly at all and it was a great way to cool down after riding through 85+ humidity. we also channeled our inner daniel-sans.

there was a tire casualty so while they sorted that out in the dark, the rest of us decided to look for the fort… uhm, yea, i’m chicken shit and so is suz so we were more than happy the ratio of boys to girls was at least 8:3 lmao.

after our little run with our version of the blair witch project, the bf and i decided it was time to go home, we parted from the group and rode the rest of the way to the carnasie L train stop, because there was NO way that we were riding all the way back home after riding about 20 miles to get to fort tilden bahahaha! my ass thanks the L train. oh, the rest of the group continued on to coney island then back to the city…

i had a BLAST and i can’t wait to do it again – if you follow my twitter, i’ll be blasting out the next ride, come! oh yea, thanks kyle!!! =)

*my only edit was replacing the 2nd line with “the skids of a bike tire,” other than that – pretty on fucking point.
