BPR AR Bylaws and rules of conduct.

Any of you Dudes  that are living the BPR lifestyle of Beer, Ludacracy and constant bike exploration of the Alternate really in the Natural State, that want to roll with the peace, love and freaky harmony of  BPR AR  will have to go for a ride with the Capt. and agree to ABIDE by the  bylaws. Dudettes that want to roll with BPR AR will do as they please. 

                       AR BPR Bylaws and rules of conduct.

BPR AR  bylaws and rules of conduct.
AR Bucko, John Paul Cook, Captain and Supreme  Commander. 12/3/2016

The Arkansas Chapter of Back of the Pack Racing has one Captain. John Paul Cook, the AR Bucko, who is supreme commander and will not be questioned . The crew shall greet the captain and each other with the ancient pirate greeting. Arrrrrrrrr. If you put a "gh" at the end of the Arrrrrrr you will flogged. The crew can refer to each other as bucko or dude if so inclined. They can refer to the captain by any name they like to call him except Betty. If you call the captain Betty, you will be flogged.
  BPR AR is based on the basic concept of Me Against The Mainstream.

   BPR AR was formed by the captain to promote peace, love, harmony and, ludacracy and the life of embracing the alternate reality and 32xYM single speed bike riding in the wilds of Arkansas and world wide through riding at the back of any pack and making fun of dudes in lycra.
  To that end the Captain will Shanghai into the crew any Dude or Dudette that he encounters in the alternate reality of AR that is rolling 32 X YM or is single and rigid and is living the BPR life, or is just generally bad ass and loves to ride bikes, especially in the woods for a long time while camping out.
Any who wishes to roll with the BPR AR crew, will be admitted at the sole discretion of the Captain, upon satisfying his requirements, period.
  The crew is obligated when being passed by any dude in lycra displaying a certain Arkansas based multinational chicken corporation logo, to cluck like a chicken at them, and ride to the nearest brewery for a beer.
  When participating in any riding and or drinking activities the crew is required to spread peace, love , and harmony.

The BPR AR crew will be responsible each for their own safety and not hold anyone else to account for any injury. Especially if they ride off a bluff after twelve high gravity beers.

 The BPR AR crew will consume local beer whenever possible. Most BPR leaders prefer IPA.  The AR Bucko prefers a high gravity trippel or imperial stout.  The crew can drink the local beer of choice, but the Captain will ridicule them endlessly if they drink crappy rice based swill.

How we roll :
Dudes in the crew are required to follow the BPR AR bylaws or will be sanctioned , disgraced and publicly flogged by the captain, or just ignored while we roll on.
Dudettes who roll with the crew will do and dress as they please. They are not required to follow any rules accept the non discrimination clause. Dudes will do their best to encourage more dudettes to ride at their leisure and pleasure.

Uniform :
The BPR AR crew uniform will follow the founding fathers in wearing baggy shorts and work shirts, plaid preferred, or in cold weather, jeans or wool pants and whatever other warm cloths required to not die. Arkansas razorback red tee shirts or any tee shirt with a skull and cross bones on it or tank top in hot weather is acceptable. When attending BPR events, plaid and patches as per the founding fathers instructions will be considered good form.
  Actually the Crew can wear what they please, but can and will be verbally flogged and ridiculed in public by the captain and crew if they roll in lycra or refer to the uniform as their kit.

Non discrimination:
BPR AR crew will not discriminate against anyone based on race, color, creed, gender , sexual orientation, planet or dimension of origin, or choice of beer or other intoxicants.  The alternate reality is multiplex and open to vast interpretation according to the AR Bucko, who is also the Reverend Lightnin', Captain and supreme commander.

The founding fathers roll single speed and rigid 32 X YM in the Alternate reality. This is the original basis for how the crew shall roll. If a member of the crew rides with multigears, that is their business and will not be discriminated against. The AR Bucko rolls rigid, and most often SS, but has cool bikes, with multigears and will not accept any critique of his gears. The BPR AR crew may roll with squishy bits on their bike if that's what they have. The more squishy bits the more they will be verbally flogged in public by the captain and crew. If caught riding full squish in lycra, they will have to buy the beer that day, including a high gravity local ale for Captain.
Any crew over 60 years old riding a klunker is OG and is owed the respect of the crew and a high gravity ale and cigar whenever he wants one.

The BPR AR is formed to promote creative Chaos at the back of the pack any event they can infiltrate. To be done with joy and love, and beer before, during and after. This is the interpretation of the Alternate reality by The Captain, AR Bucko...

Dead last dosn't mean loser

The Captain, aka AR Bucko likes mountain bike races, but doesn't give a shit about how fast he rides. He hates being stuck with a broken derailleur hanger or derailleur that has been smashed by a rock. So he rides 32xYM and enjoys a good walk with his bike up the mountain. Plus he hates thinking about what gear to be in, so uses just one, which will always be the wrong gear, 

 When ever the Captain finds himself at the front of the back of the pack he finds a nice spot to sit by the trail and has a  high gravity local ale and cigar. This gives him a chance to be DFL (dead fucking last) and harass dudes in lycra that ride by. The Capt. always goes against the mainstream so DLF is his favorite place to be.
