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)

Giro di Portlandia

I've never done a race before and this is going to be my first and of course i have a lot of questions. and of course i'm looking for pdx people who have actually done this. and i've already seen the poster so i know the time, the cost, and the place.
1:what exactly kind of race is this?

2:what is this race like? what to expect?

3:what's the route like? could i get away with just following the leader?

4:and although i do normally ride a fixed gear, for speed/comfort sake i think i'm going to go with my road bike. would that acceptable?

as always thanks for your responses!
