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)

Rides I've heard about but never attended:

Tuesday night meet at the art museum.
Thursday meet at Love Park

I think both are at 10pm, I could be wrong. I thought there was a thead not that long ago. Let me know if you put one together.

Twisted Tuesdays

Meet in front of the art museum at 11:30pm and ride to 9th and washington for FRESH HOT PRETZELS! then just hang out and shoot the sh1t for a while.

Thrashin' Thursdays

Love park, every thursday at 10pm.

Attendance has dropped off for these rides due to cold weather and everyone in philly being LESS THAN HARDCORE!!!! bahhhh. just kidding. Come on out to these rides... Usually Me, Stet, and MattGarfield are there plus a bunch of non bikeforums people. Although, I dont really thrash, I am always at the pretzel rides.

dude! I saw you! You were walking a bike, your girl was on your left bike on your right, then you crossed JFK I believe. I tottally saw you! what a small world, I dunno, I guess I was just watching those pedals spin. I was standing in love park around 5:50pm, I was riding around looking for the Race(which was gathered over by the 711 supposidly) but ended up not finding it and just doing critical mass.
