On certain hills that suit my cadence, I blast past roadies.
The rest of the time they have their way with me.
Of course, we have a lot of Olympic and professional bicyclists in this town, and we sponsor a number of races that have a national and international draw.
Some of the more dedicated male and female roadies have so much power and technique it defies comprehension.
I get wonderfully humiliated by smooth, fast women all the time.
Still, I love my fixed gear bike and I have no intention of ever riding geared bikes again, except in the really nasty weather when I need gears to get through rutted snow.
One of these years I'll build a dedicated ice fixie, and I'll ride fixed year 'round.
