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)

Milwaukee Commuter Race!

The annual Milwaukee commuter race is scheduled for Wednesday, May 17th at 7:30 a.m. on Bluemound between 51st and 56th. I am not sure of the exact location. The race is between a bicycle, car, and bus and ends at Zeidler Park on 4th and Michigan. The bike has always won in past years but I spoke to the bus driver this morning and he was very determined and mentioned not stopping for red lights...

It needs to go in the opposite direction so I can win it on my way to work.

We had a race like that here to promote biking public transport, and trains (the latter two services are pretty ****ty here). The boss of the railway company went along on a train. Guess what: the train was late and got beaten by the car Biker won, of course.
