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

Someone has broken Rollapaluza

Matt Crampton beats rollapaluza record

So, some geezer has destroyed the Rollapaluza record. A tenth under 18 seconds, will any of the Birmingham fixed gear crew be able to test this badman?

If you’ve not had the chance to try roller racing, I definitely recommend that you take the opportunity if and when it arises. It’s really a form of self-abuse disguised as some sort of ‘competetive bicycle race event’ which will leave you feeling physically and mentally destroyed but thirsty for more punishment. Rollapaluza has been in Brum at least twice, but that was during work hours.

I hope we can get them in Brum city centre somehow – maybe at the Custard Factory outside Ideal on a sunny Summer afternoon – who noze.
