Was heading out and the bike died and was not able to get it started again...

Looks like I'll be doing some troubleshooting over the next few days...

Re: Emma Long ride....

I plan to be at Emma either Saturday or Sunday.

Why? Because Emma won't close on me due to rain, I'm hoping that posting this will help motivate me to get the 300 back together and in riding condition again, and potential work comflicts
are at a minimum.

I'm already feeling excited.

I always like to do a Powell/Emma weekend this time of year, but rain is in the forecast for the week and I don't know how that will play out.

Your gift or donation is the entry fee for this event. Attached are a few lists of recommended gifts depending on age. A cash or check donation is accepted at the event as well. See attached event flyer for event information. The toy-ride has always been a fun event. You get to ride Emma Long City Park and help out someone in need at the same time. Win-Win! Hope to see you all there.

PS....
As exciting as this event is, it's the trials bikes up for sale that makes this event a must go. if you've been hunting around for a trials bike and haven't found any w/in your budget- come out to city park this saturday - this is where a range of good, used trials bike deals will be. I heard there will be 4 used trials bikes -from just one guy -that's up F/S-- a couple of starter trials bikes priced under $2k, a 2011 Beta 290 and a 2016 Beta 290 -THE FACTORY MODEL- that he's pricing well below the price of the base regular model.

Re: Emma Long ride....

VITAL MEETING FOR THE FUTURE OF OFF ROAD USE IN AUSTIN. PLEASE ATTEND IF YOU CAN.

Emma Long /Preserve Update/Progress/Meeting Attendance
Your presence at the BCCP
Coordinating Committee meeting on
Friday, December 7 is absolutely vital!
We need about 70 people to attend for support
Your presence last December was an absolute success! Together we blocked
the approval of an absolute disaster of a governance document – the Chapter on
public access to BCP lands.
As a direct result of the defeat of the 2017 version of the document, our team has
been allowed to proactively work with BCP and Austin Parks on the rewriting of
the Chapter on public access. This is a totally new and extremely welcomed
approach to end user engagement from the BCP. They truly hope to pass the
Chapter and we have made remarkable progress on creating a fair version of the
document. We are actually quite close to a reasonable document; however, a
few key edits are absolutely needed.
We plan to formally request those edits be included before we can support
approval of the document. The BCCP Coordinating Committee needs to know
that these edits are of critical concern to you.
Please, your presence at the meeting on Friday
December 7 is absolutely vital!
Please arrive by 12:15 so you can sign-up to speak or donate your time to others
December 7, 1-3pm: BCCP Coordinating Committee meeting, Austin City
Hall Chamber, Room 1001. Free parking, see map attached.
For this progress we need to thank sorted alphabetically:
Antonio, Chris, Jon, Kent, Kevin, Marnie, Ron, Sasha, SilentPartners, Tara, & Tomás
More info? Tomás Pantin moto@pantin.com 512 474 9968 ( voice)
Austin City Hall
301 W 2nd St
Austin TX 78701
PARKING
FREE PARKING
The building is located between West Cesar Chavez St.,
West 2nd Street, Guadalupe St., and Lavaca St.
The entrance to free parking is on Guadalupe St.
Bring your parking stub to the lobby on the 1st floor and
ask for a validation by the City Council meeting room.

Very important meeting 12-7. Notice of very important meeting 12-7. Was this notice posted somewhere prior to this? Bureaucrats sneak up on us again? What am I missing?

Re: Emma Long ride....

It was posted on another forum a few minutes before I posted here. So I passed it on.
I guess it was on some Facebook page ( I dont do facebook)

It was too bad we didn't know about it.
