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)

the cold makes you want to stay warm and thus you try to go as fast as you can to stay warm, perfect conditions for a race.

Savannah has a huge St. Patrick's Day Celebration with a Parade and Irish culture events. A special version of green beer is served.

116 miles north on I-16 is Dublin, GA in case you really need Dublin.

I live in savannah, and will most likely be here for st. pattys day, it's probably one of the most amazing things ever. The whole city get's drunk, and because like new orleans there are open containers allowed on the streets, then it's quite easy to do so. They dye all the fountains in the squares green. It should warm up by then, we've been having 70 degree days lately with no clouds, so it should be fine in march. Bring your bikes down here, i'm always looking for someone to ride with.

Tony, we must get together for some hooliganism. I'm in the states until April, but when I get back I'll PM you.

I was dying for some people to ride with in IE (the irony being that the majority of my workplace cycles to work).

If your traveling for St.Pats parties, Chicago is a pretty good place to be as well, we dye (part of) the flippn river green, theres 2 parades (usually on different days to continue the party), one up north for the drunk kids, and one down south for the old schoolers. and since we have pretty good public transportation it's easy to get around if your from out of town and don't want to rent a car(or don't want to drive drunk).
Of course it's real cold, the fountain in Daley plaza last year made big green icicles on the fence surounding it (wind blew the spray).
