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)

Thursday nights is race night at Seward Park. Friday nights is race night at the Marymoor Velodrome.

There's a good shop called Elliot Bay Bikes, down near the market (just follow the road through the market and keep going south by the water for a few blocks, it's on your right). Alki Bikes is another good one, I forget which bus you need, but it's in a part of town called (suprisingly) Alki, you'll see it one a map.

Elliot Bay Cycles is a nice shop to visit... just be careful or you'll end up dropping cash on an order for a $5,000 Davidson custom titanium bike. Alki Point/Alki Beach is a neat place to visit even if you aren't a cyclist. The area is our own little version of Venice Beach. If you're coming this weekend, you may want to consider renting a bike and participating in The Bike Shop Poker Ride. As far as bike-related strip clubs, you missed last weekend's Seattle's participation in the World Naked Bike Ride.

If you just want to check out a place with lots of cool bike stuff, check out Recycled Cycles in the U. District. Used and new bikes and parts and fun to go rifling through the parts bins.
