Birmingham Fixed Gear

It’s not about the bike; it’s about the ride.

A4040 (11 bus route) Ride – Sunday 18th May

with 17 comments

Meet on Sunday 18th May, 11am outside Central Library. Post a comment below (use a valid e-mail address so I can e-mail you back). Not a spectacular ride but just something to get you fit. Since this circles Brum there are various interesting places we could potentially stop at.

  4. Hello people,

    My bikes been out of service for a few months, just got it back together and getting properly used to riding it without fear of the chan snapping or wheel falling out.

    Havent got many fixed miles under my belt, looking for a “gentle” ride to do around Birmingham to break my bike, and unfit body in.

    This sounds alright, although I was planning on going to the wheels nuts jam @ birmingham wheels on sunday.

    Bikes is bikes though I guess.

    Any definite details for this ride yet?

    I should add, im still at the point where Im riding faster uphill than downhill, plus im shit scared of pedal striking round corners!

  8. Guinea pig, I’m moving house that weekend so I’m not sure if I can make it or not. I might be able to get everything done on the Saturday so let’s say Sunday the 18th at 11am, subject to change? I’ll e-mail you all this week to confirm.

  12. How about if we all start from the closest place to our houses? For example I could ride from Bearwood and meet anyone that lives in selly oak, then we could ride from there to meet anyone who lives in king’s heath, and so on, picking people up as we go along?.

    Meeting in town would be simpler though… its up to you guys really


    5 May, 2008 at 12:59 pm

  13. yeah im up for this too. we could meet in town then head to bearwood or kings heath as its the closest point on the 11 route to town (i think)?


    5 May, 2008 at 12:12 pm

  14. i’m interested. where would you be starting?


    4 May, 2008 at 9:19 pm

  15. o wait i just re read it. ye if this ride isn’t for a few weeks, im in


    4 May, 2008 at 12:32 am

  16. hey, this all looks good. I can’t come for a week or so as my bike’s in a shit state (read: no money) but definitely in a couple of weeks.

  17. Dude, you own like half the internet! You’re like the Brummy Rupert Murdoch. Where do find all the time, boy?! This is another good idea of yours – cool banner. Maybe we should merge this site, messbhx (which should have been called ridebhx, might be arsed to change that someday) and parts you’ve done on MoD and make a mega site of combined efforts for bicycle culture that’s for anything bike related not just fixed? Whatcha say, boy?
