The third happening in Rapha’s roller race series this Saturday 19th April, 7.30pm – midnight at Imbibe Bar, 173 Blackfriars Road,  SE1 8ER.

Rollapaluza all over again

Rollapaluza have re-branded themselves with a new website and more. They are now a cycling club open to all and in their words “less formal than other London clubs”. Everyone is invited to join whether they want to ride socially or competitively. Find out more…

Incidentally I heard about another new cycling club, recently. Cycling Club Hackney is particularly geared towards young people in the borough but everyone is welcome to get involved.

On the other hand, this is a work of art….

UPDATE: Dave Moulton has a piece on his blog in reaction to the story and coverage of it on the net. I’m never sure about why people are so bothered about fixed/gear/wheel whatever terminology you want. I’d rather just get on with it…
