Artist: John Farnham Track: "Break the Ice" Album: Rad Original Movie Soundtrack

I'm back -- and in a bike gang!

The BMX Bandits are a rough-and-tumble trio of hellraisers running the streets in hopes of getting a little exercise and reducing carbon emissions. Antelope, Blue Meanie and I, otherwise known as White Heat, recently got three sweet road bikes from a guy in Grove City. We went on our first ride yesterday afternoon -- even though there was a slight drizzle! (So tough!)

For those who have never been in a sweet bike gang, it's a lot like the clip above, from the great '80s film Rad. Technically the Australians made the first classic BMX movie -- it's where the Bandits got our name -- but Rad is far superior. (You can't call your gang "Rad," though.)
