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)

Kissena Sat 1/28

A small group of us are making plans to be at Kissena velodrome on Saturday at 11:00. The weather sounds great...50's and sunny. If anyone wants a ride from the Navy Yard/Fort Greene area you can PM me - I have room for two bikes and two (maybe 3 people)...but one of those bikes will be in the back seat and trunk.

damnit, i already made plans for saturday...

edit: how long do ya'll think you'll be there. my already existing plans are to ride up to PS1 with michele, so maybe we could swing by Kissena afterwards since we'll be in queens, albeit the other side.

I can try to fit another bike in my car if anyone is in or around the Sheepshead Bay area. It will probably involve taking your bars, pedals, and wheels off. send me a pm

Take the 7 to Flushing, Queens. Then maybe use this Queens bus line map (PDF) or a a NYC bike map to find your way. It's not toooo far from the the Flushing stop. I used to live up there and took me maybe 15-20 minutes to get there. I seem to remember taking Parsons Blvd., but I could be wrong. This was awhile ago. heh.

Also maybe try this Google Map Pedometer thinger I whipped up. link

Looks like its under 2 miles from the subway.
