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)

For some reason I think I missed the Chunkathalon this year, but if it hasn't happened this year, that is a must see.

Ok, googled, that was in Sept.

Umm, other than, I hear critical mass for Halloween is usually pretty good. I don't think there are any other major bicycle events.
