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)

to all female riders...

I was thinking that it would be great if we ladies all got together to build some female solidarity within the bike community.

Let's meet up to talk bikes, to go for rides, and to convert newbies into hardcore bike chicks!

If you're in the SF bay area (I'm in Oakland), and want to meet up, speak your mind.

thursday nights are good for me. We can do an east bay pub crawl. I can call gaby and a few other girls but i have a feeling there won't be a huge group, even if gears are invited. We could invite boys and make them wear skirts if they come, or not. There is an oakland bike brigade thing that happens once a month here, gears and fixed mixed. I am a little weary of riding in packs though because people have problems keeping a straight line sometimes, i'm willing to give it a try though.

sounds good.. let's get em together.. should we say a couple weeks from now?

i think, that if guys wanna ride with us, they need to go to the store, pick out a skirt, and buy it (without using the excuse that it's for their girlfriend or something).
2 cents at goodwill.
or, they can just meet us at the bar afterwards.. (skirt optional)

Newbies are definitelly welcome (as long as you try your hardest not to take out your fellow riders)..

skirts are optional.. (they kinda suck to ride in, though..)
