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)

CT ride?

Anybody in Connecticut want to get some rides or events going? I'm wondering if there enough (or, really, any) people in the general Bridgeport area who would like to have some fixed fun.

I'm in Newington, a good 45 minutes from bridgeport, but if the rides were decent I think I'd make it out there.

New Haven fixed gear riders center around the Devil's Gear bike shop. Before it started snowing in December they had rides from the shop to Sleeping Giant on Tuesdays and rides around town (races in parking lots) on Thursdays. I don't think regular rides have started up again, but they should come spring. (I guess today *feels* a lot like spring, but whatever).

It also looks like the folks who did the way fun Devil's Night Out alleycat are threatening a really complicated alleycat in the spring.

The problem with Connecticut is that everyone's about 45 minutes apart...

QP, you know some good rides around Bridgeport? Metro-North is easy.
