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)

Forward circles

Thats what it's like riding on Vancouver's indoor velodrome.

Checked it out this wednesday in prep, and if you ain't ridden a 200m steeply banked track before, dont even think about riding the madison. Imagine cuttin laps in your bathtub...

The 6 day race starts this Mon, and runs all week, 7pm till 10pm. Saturday is the final night.

www.karelo.com to register.

Should be a great event to watch so any lo-cals make sure you do - its bloody $2!

go!

How do you practice these "forward circles" of which you speak?

Sounds like a good time.
Right now, our velo is snow-bound. Yuck...
