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)

NYC Rally for safer bridge access

i know a lot of you rarely hit the other forums, so i thought i'd post a link to this:
NYC Transportation Alternatives RALLY for Safe Bicycling 4/11/05
in short, it is a rally to honor the TA guy who got nailed by a hit and run on the brooklyn side of the manhattan bridge. plus, it should raise awareness of the danger the drivers pose when they are racing for their highways. it really is hella scary there.

monday, the 11th, 5:30 PM. Brooklyn side of the manhattan
