Birmingham Fixed Gear

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

More about the “secret street race”

fixies!

– This is only a small race, no bells no whistles, in fact barely any organization whatsoever. So don’t expect anything more than a really fast ride on a cold, dark, possibly wet Friday night in Birmingham. Ok so ideally it would be a warm, dry summer evening, but come on, it’ll be fun, represent the Birmingham fix-up massive!

– Bring a camera, bring lights, bring warm clothes and gloves, and bring a couple of (warm) beers.

Wear a scary costume. Whoever wears the best costume wins a prize of some sort.

– So far there are a couple of small prizes from Bagaboo.

– Some prizes from House of Pistard and Archie’s Gro Bags are expected too. Watch this space.

– Events planned are: devil takes the hindmost race, trackstand comp, and a sprint comp. No skid comp cos I don’t want to encourage tyre wasteage.

– Adrian from Sprocket Cycles (who provided the alleycat prizes) says he is going to enter. On his badass Corima track bike with super-wide handlebars, which I’ll post a picture of soon.

– Don’t worry if you live far away; you should be able to get the last train back from Birmingham New Street after the race.

– IT’S GONNA BE FUN!!!
