I was just riding along...PT

I was about 35 miles into my ride, cruising up into the Snowy Mountains (west of Laramie, WY) -- well, acutally I was more-or-less lumbering along -- when I was passed by the "Red Bull" pick-up truck. Laramie is a college town and apparently that's reason enough for Red Bull to subsidize some frat guy to hand out free samples of their energy drink. Sure enough, the truck whips over to the side of the road, the driver jumps out, grabs a can of ice cold Red Bull from the cooler in back, and makes a well executed hand-up as I rode past. It was good and it did help take the edge off my on-coming bonk. Beats the hell out of getting a beer can thrown at you...

I once had a hitchhiker ask me for a ride. I swear I saw his picture on a wanted poster later. I think I rather have the red Bull truck give me a drink.

When I was still messengering in NYC, the Source magazine van rode by me. They had a huge Mountain Dew logo on the side. So I rode up to the driver side and asked them for a Mountain Dew. The driver first looked at me like I was crazy, then reached behind him into a cooler and said "good question" while handing me a Mountain Dew. It was near the end of the day and hotter than hell in early October on the streets of New York City, that drink really hit the spot.
Ohhh, Nice!!!rwbadley

on my club team's PRACTICE night. Four hot chicks with Red Bull coolers strapped to their backs (buxom ladies with heavy backpacks are always wonderful) were handing out free cans. Robbie gave a little lecture on training methods and then wrapped it up by telling us that drinks like Red Bull should be consumed half an hour before a race. It was a bit surreal.

There must have been a scheduling SNAFU, as there would have been about 10 times as many people there on race night.

Oh, they have hot chicks eh?Kristin

The flyer doesn't say anything about the girls. But its cycling related, I should have known. Robbie Ventura will be out in Barrington tomorrow. The guys were hoping to chug some Red Bull and hit the route with Robbie. But perhaps the pace won't be so fast as they were hoping. :-)
