Strava have released their overall stats from 2014. Interesting reading.
Murder of Couriers is a documentary about Vancouver bicycle messengers. Because apparently there is a void to fill since Triple Rush got cancelled after 1 episode.
There’s loads of trailers on their website, and if you still need your fill of watching people ride sick fixies and drink tinnies you can watch the whole thing on Vimeo (although you’ve got to pay, that beer won’t buy itself).
I’m not paying to watching someone ride a bike like an idiot, I do that first hand often enough, so if anyone has watched it let me know what you think.
After the LFGSS track day VIII was rained off last year, the 2.0 version has just been announced.
There will be some awesome prizes, everything from champagne and cheese to free coffee and t-shirts, so hopefully enough for people to win things even if they weren’t first across the line.
Also it was be a laugh because we all know LFGSS is the friendliest place on the internet.
To race you will need to have done an induction on the track, and I hear they are implementing a kind of accreditation process for the coming season, but there’s loads of time to get that sorted before May.
The probable race program is currently:
Mens’ A/B Qualifier (10 lap Scratch)
Women Scratch (10 laps)
Cat A Devil
Cat B Devil
Cat A Keirin
Cat B Keirin
Cat A Points
Cat B Points
Hare & Hound (All In)
So come along and have a blast!
Now here’s some metal
Skream Bikes is a new product range from Hong Kong based BrakelessHK. I don’t know much else about them are their website isn’t up yet.
But anyway, here’s their new frame, the Skream Sprint.
And by original, I mean completely unoriginal.
In their words “We are pleasure to introduce you our product line SKREAM BIKES, we spent months building prototypes, improving details, and make sure it can be used in the most demanding circumstances while keeping the stiffness and beauty of something you’d ride with pride.”
More like months copying already popular bikes and getting the paintjob right.
The first Vulpine Cyclogame will be held on the 8th December at Oval Space in Hackney. There’s going to be loads going on and it looks like a good fun
It’s free too, so there’s not really any excuse for not going. There will be loads of people doing stuff. I’d list it all but it will be easier to just go on their website.
For the Cycle Love stall, they’re running an online competition where you can upload a picture of your bike and vote for your favourite. The winners will be displayed on the stall for maximum smugness. You can check out the pictures here (and vote for the Makino)
See you there!
Spin, who hosted a very well received cycle show during the summer, are back. This time they’ve partnered up with the London Coffee Festival, bringing the classic combination of caffeine abuse and bikes together once again. And this time, the show is free (apart from a £1.75 booking fee). The website for the event is here. There’s going to be some great exhibitors and it will definitely be a laugh.
It’s from the 29th November to 1st December. Get your tickets here
