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)

Register for a free account at http://www.photobucket.com/. There is a bandwidth limit, but I have found it's not too low. Just don't post tons of pics in high traffic forums, and leave them up forever.

Yea, man. Signed up and can't find anyway to view other people's pics. Seems like just a sight to organize your own and get prints of them?

Email them to me and I'll host and post up or link to an index page.

Thanks for posting those and making us pose for 'em Shame we don't have footage of the sweet one footed skids people were pulling in Canary Wharf. TechOne, you are my new skid idol.

To everyone who came, its was indeed a pleasure.

For those that decided to stay at home I say "Hrrrumph" to you. I hope that you now see the error of your ways and will attend for the next pirate, pyjama, or just for the craic ride.

unfortunately the 'tash won't make an appearance for the possible pirate theme- stuck it on the dog and she shredded it.

second the feeling from pip, pat on the back for the attendees.

anyone up for a less than formal aleycat/orienteering type ride? getting the certificate for scaling the monument made me think of checkpoint tasks that wouldn't have to be manned by one of us...

That was a wicked day out and it's great to see the photos in their full size glory. I was wearing my tweed cap as I rode in this mornig and think it might become my winter riding hat. Keeping that old man vibe alive.

I second Pip's "harumph" to anyone who didn't make it - hopefully you will next time. I like the idea of an alleycat theme thing and it would give me the excuse to make 1% spoke cards to allow regular run ins with the Angels at traffic lights.

Looks like you guys had a blast... Things get lonely up here in the frozen north so I'll have to try to get down for one of your future rides. Keep me posted!
