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)

Fixed gear rides in So Cal

Are there any fixed gear rides on weekends? I get out too late on weeknights to ride with most people. So until August i ride either late evenings or weekends.

i will be back in huntington beach from the 10th until the 22nd with my fixie. if you want to ride, let me know. i am probably going to ride my fixie around before i leave for denmark since everything around my parents house is pretty much flat.

my schedule is pretty open for the most part. i just have to do random errands here and there to get ready for denmark. i was thinking something along the lines of cruising pch since it's pretty flat and not many steep hills to a stoplight. it would also be fun to cruise past freewheelers.
