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 Randonnee

ToT 1000km by pdewey2 at Garmin Connect - Details


This was a hard one...no planned sleep stops and I was solo after the 400th km.
The other rider had to quit.

quite a bit of rain...four thunderstorms, lightening struck within 20 some feet of me.
And a lot of hills. And fog.

But it was satisfying. My future self is thanking me already.

Awesome ride. I'm preparing for my first fixed english century, you're putting my nervousness to shame

Nicely done. Maybe one day I will try going fixed on a brevet but for now I don't think I can deal with it and the exhaustion.
