    Anyone interested in starting some fixed gear races in CINCINNATI / NORTHERN KENTUCKY similar to the program that the Richmond Sprint Club has put together?

    Problem is that there are very few fixed gears here. I've only seen a few anyway. I'd be interested but I'm without a doubt, not a racer. It'd be nice to just get a ride together in my opinion.
    Maybe Doctor Who will chime in on this one.

    Indeed it takes fortitude. That's right FORTITUDE. Ah who am I kidding, I ride the roadie when in the hills. I ride the fix a lot when going out in the summer but when I have a mile long climb on the way back I use the bus racks.
    I definitely think I ride should be planned, but perhaps maybe not for only fixed gears.

    There's a stretch of road off of 71/75 going south towards the airport that is along yet undeveloped land. I see cross country runners out there in the field and bikers alot on the road. Looks like a good spot for an out and back sprint race. Check out the richmond web page. Nothing fancy, just folks wanting to have a go at it. I think there are more fix heads here than you think. Lunken air field park, places like that. I'll set up an email address, you guys can hit me and we'll see if we get a ride going first.

    what about the river road that goes from the stadiium out towards annie's? that seems like it'd be pretty dead at night unless annie's had a show.

    find a crit course, we raced around a cemetary until they kicked us out last summer. We found a couple of industrial areas with warehouses etc that are shut down on Sundays when we race so that could be an option, or a park. Basically you want to stay out of traffic and out of the eye of cops. Also, find some steep assed hills for hill climbs. TTs can be run in parks or long stretches of roads in suburbia. We have also done point to point races with no designated course just check points. Definately have a leader/organizer if you want to run a points series like sprint club does. And def check out the www.sprintclubrva.org website for more ideas. Yeah so good luck and get that **** started...

    Hey, I just saw this.

    I think we're going to try to set up another alleycat race in a month or so. Check here for updates.

    http://www.flyingpigcourier.com/Alleycat.htm

    But yeah, if you're looking for information, fixed-gear rides, etc., then I'd definitely check out Campus Cyclery in Clifton. Brian rides fixed and is such a solid dude.

    Anyway, I ride almost every day, mostly on my fixed Lemond (at least until the Spring USCF races start). If you're ever down for some riding, I get off work by 3:30 and I head out soon afterwards, weather permitting. If you're down to get some miles in, then let me know. PM me through the forum, or just keep on bumping this thread until everyone in Chi-Town gets chapped at us Cincinnatians.

    I'm gonna see if I persuade the guys from Campus to have another alleycat race. The first one went off without a hitch and fun was had by all. You shoulda come..

    My attendance at that was thwarted! It would be nice to get some stuff rolling here.

    I've met Dibbs before, I think. I was talking about Fat Rob though...I used to run into the scrub club a lot back in my skating days.

    I had no idea there was a Cincy alley cat before, so publicity must have been pretty limited. I'm up at school in Oxford, so I doubt I'd come down to ride unless it was for an event. Dr. Who (Mark?), I'll be at the USCF race you're hosting at Hueston Woods. See you there.
