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)

Not paying attention...

News from fixed.org.au:

ndf (nath) was hit by a car while out on a ride in Gold Coast, he is very badly injured with many broken bones throughout his body. He is being transported from Gold Coast up to Brisbane to undergo surgery as we speak. The actual details of the accident we are unsure, but as we find out details will let individuals know.

We do know, he has a very long road to recovery............


Here in Van a woman was killed while cycling home by a teenage driver who was on the phone.

I started taking photos of drivers on the phone for a while and stopped at about 50. It only took me a week.

I don't know how as a community we can change driver behaviour, specifically on the phone driving - anyone got ideas?

be safe.

There was a petition somewhere that I signed online to attempt to make the cell phone driving laws enforced more harshly. I don't remember where I found it, but I'll do some digging in my history. If I recall correctly it was on an admin's signature.
