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)

Bobsled is complete sickness

I rode Zoobomb the other night for the first time. I loved it. I went on a test run with a couple fellas and after the initial session through the neighborhoods, and the mandatory drinkypoo at the rally point, we rode "bobsled" the rest of the way. Completly sick. The next wave was the real deal and everyone voted for "hellride" which was all windy and steep but I think Bobsled is the money run.

zoobomb is where a bunch of people ride mainly 16" kids bikes down this insanely steep and curvey road that comes down from the portland zoo. i didn't participate in the zoobomb deal, but rode that hill on a brakeless 49:16 track bike and wanted to cry myself to sleep.

Did you ride a kid's bike or your own? I've been wanting to do this some sunday, but I'm not sure if you need to bring your own bike or if you're supposed to take on of the kid's bikes. Either way, it sounds like a blast.
