Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

There will be a DC contingent... and I think many of us will just pair up once we're there.

As much as I know, it starts by doing a pick up at the art museum then dropping it off with a partner at city hall, and your partner takes it from there to the next check point. There are of course other details which I have left out, but this was as much as I was given. Just sounds like to much fun.

Are you talking about mike dailey(rides for time cycle?), if so he is a good friend from the college days. It would be good times. The more the merrier. Are you going up with brad & co.(from trackstar)?

i am talking about dailey. i worked with him at TCC for a long time before i moved to NYC. i am not going up with trackstar. i did a training ride on the new haven to new york stage with them last week and they look really strong. they are my favorite to win this thing; definitely in the fixed category and maybe even overall. i'm trying to get a team together though, because i really do want to ride this race. even if i don't (which will disappoint me severely), i will be here in NYC on 25.Jun for mermaid parade and the Black Label/Chunk666 event.

I was told the hand-off spot was Love Park. But what do I know?
