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)

Inkdwheels in SF on Sunday

Hey SFers (and larger bay area),

Inkdwheels is going to arrive in Daly City (close to Seramonte center) this Sunday afternoon and will need some help with a couple of bulky items. So the idea is to get toghether in SF and ride to Daly City to help him out, followed by hanging out and drinking beer, followed by riding back to SF.

We shall meet at 11.30am on Sunday at the huge Bow and Arrow at Embarcadero and Folsom.

Anybody in?

I'm totally in if I feel better. Sick right now, but not as sick as I was yesterday.

Give me a call on Sunday when you're heading to the bow and arrow...

Cool!

Never actually rode my bicycle to Serramonte center. Doubt we can use the Freeway.
Guess we can take skyline and drop in from the top. If anyone feels ambitious they can put toghether the route.

hey SF,

I'm visiting this week from New Jersey, and I'm really curious about the fixie experience around the city. If anyone wants to bring along an extra bike, I'll totally help move furniture or just come out for a spin.

Thanks!

That makes sense. Or just ride to the beach and follow the Great HWY.
The part after Skyline is a little hazy to me still. (haven't really looked at it either to be honest)

The destination address is: The address is 548 clarinada ave
daly city, ca 94015* (* address slightly modified to maintain privacy.)

p.s. Clayton, you're in the background of a photo from the MASH party, used in a little paragraph about the Bicycle Film Festival in this month's Mass Appeal(#37) pg.34 !

I should for def be there at Rincon Park in the morning, but if I'm not, it probably means I'm lost and wandering the streets of SF. My number is 617 308 8274, give me a call if I miss the start time.
