LFGSS track day VIII 2.0 4/5/14


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
Women Devil
Cat A Keirin
Cat B Keirin
Women Keirin
Cat A Points
Cat B Points
Women Points
Hare & Hound (All In)
Keirin Finals


So come along and have a blast!





Now here’s some metal


Heavy Metal Bowling 16/5/2013

Heavy Metal Bowling PosterOn Friday 16th May 2013 at Rowans Bowling Center in Finsbury Park will be the next instalment of Heavy Metal Bowling. This one is a thrash metal special, which is all the more reason to go. I wish every social situation had the same sound track and this, imagine going to the pub to have Municipal Waste and Anthrax on in the background. It would be awesome. And that’s what this is, awesome, because everyone likes bowling and there’s even Guinness on tap too.

I’m going, you should too.

This is the facebook event page.




The Great British Braze off at LMNH on Saturday was really interesting, I wish I could have seen more of it.

Here is Ryan from Oakcycles (who buit my custom road frame) and Ricky from Feathercycles sanding a tube to clean it for brazing.

Some artist guy was installing his work just as my shift finished, I hope it doesn’t stay like this, because at the moment it’s just a Cat 5 Rapha/Assos gallery and you can’t see the bikes.

I recently read about the Black Skulls Motorcycle Club in Hackney, and being a sucker for anything black or with skulls,  I want in. Better get a motorbike first I guess. If only I had some money. I spied a bit of Death Spray Custom work there via a blog too.

Rapha went and cycled with Greg Lemond, the greatest US cyclist ever. Which is pretty cool. Although he is looking a little unfit, compared to say, Francesco Moser.

Prolly has got an amazing new custom carbon Argonaut Cycles bike, which is making me want my custom Oak Cycles 853 beast to be finished even more. It’s only a matter of time.

Finally, notice the new header on this blog? That’s thanks to my amazing girlfriend. Stickers to come soon.

Now here’s some metal.
