    Proposed Sumo Location:
    Where Old StageCoach Road meets the Bike Culvert under 101.

    Weaknesses
    - Dark. Needs torches to ward off the monsters. Fire is cool.
    - Leading a bike happening to the bike lane of Cuesta Grade. (i’d like that!)
    - Alot of people will wimp out, and never make it there.
    - A location like this actually requires minimal planning, selling, and networking.

    Pro’s:
    - Alot of people will wimp out, and never make it there.
    - I don’t think the distant neighbors will be able to hear us as much as the trucks.
    - The punk who gets mashed by a Peterbuilt was probably the one of the people who threw trash over Wally’s fence. (”Stay in the right lane! - Or die!”)
    (Darwin is my homeboy)
    - The kind of people who throw trash over Wally’s fence might not have the ambition to pedal more than 5 extra minutes to a Sumo ring.
    - Gravel might be worth a try. Ya think? Maybe not. It rules out skinny tires. It might encourage more beater-bike loaning. Discuss!

    There are at least 2, maybe 3 paved locations with nice potential if enough Sumo bikers have the wind to pedal uphill from the crest of Johnson street, but i’m really not expecting that level of ambition. That’s considerably more effort than the Bike Culvert location listed above.

    Hey! it’s pavement! I feared the road was gravel.

    I think some sumo-heads should head up to the tunnel under US 101, and see if anybody has the ganas to go.

    Bummer! Sept Sumo was the first time I watched the spectacle and now it’s apparently my last…

    LITTERBUGS SUCK!

    (hopefully those crack addicts aren’t mtb’ers)(who’d pollute the wilderness too)

    Sumo didn’t stop the last time that it was kicked off a property, and that was a larger scandal than this one. Sumo will shrink, atleast temporarily, but it well continue as long as people desire to push each other off their bikes.

    Join the right crowd, and you’ll probably see it tomorrow. There’s a chance of losing the path, but the chance is slim if you really want to be there. If you get unlucky, and your newfound posse of peddlers discover that they have lost the big crowd, make your own ring. It might be the best game happening that night. if i get stuck with only one other rider, i’ll push him off his peddles 3 times if he wants to get rowdy. Practice for bigger days.

    The majority of such people lack the ambition to ever find themselves in the wilderness, unless by mistake.

    Not to change the subject but……………………………………..

    Central Coast Brewing (the orginal home of sumo) is starting a new tradition of Bike Happening Pre Party from 6:30 PM till 9PM you can BBQ on the CCB patio and Pitures are only $7

    CCB will supply the BBQ grill and all the set ups. Just bring what ever you’d like to grill up and then cruz on down to the mission properly fueled for the happening.

    We did it last month and it was fun.

    See ya
