In it to Win it.

September 20, 2010

The lines are now closed so to speak. I have had hundreds of entries but there can be only one winner… Will it be you?

As soon as I have pulled the name from the proverbial hat you will all be put out of your misery. Check back later this week to find out who the lucky boy,or girl is.

Good luck everyone!

Fuji 2010.

September 23, 2009

I have always been a fan of Fuji bikes and the 2010 offerings do not dissapoint.

From ‘semi’ monocoque Carbon on the ‘Elite’ to pure cr-mo steel on the ‘classic’ Fuji have all bases covered. My personal favourite has to be the Track Pro ( second one down ) – Sh*t looks tight as hell and I would absolutely love to rip it!

I can’t really see too well in the pictures but what cranks do the ‘Pro’ and the ‘Comp’ have on? I quite like the look of them so… Answers on a postcard please.

Birmingham X-Mass

December 17, 2008

Christmas is upon us and what better way to celebrate than to meet up with your fellow cyclists and have a little mess about.

This coming Sunday ( 21st ) at 2pm we will meet outside St Martins Church ( the bottom of the stairs at the Bullring )for a quick natter and a catch up. Then it is off for a cycle around town to get some air in the lungs and upset one or two motorized vehicle operators, then back to st Martins at 4.30 to meet the second bunch of joiners. Once fully assembled we head to the previously scouted race track where we duel for the title of the fastest person on two wheels… a drag race people! At some point during the day there will be a Trackstand off, a Joust off, and maybe a skid off… so get training!

As this event has been organized at such short notice there will be no prizes other than brotherly love and praise for your speed and elegance on a cycle, Unless I can blag something between now and then!
We will see.

After the race for those who want to talk spinning techniques or perhaps bask in the glory of winning we will head to a public house for alcohol or to a cafe for tea and biscuits.

So friends there we have it. the Birmingham X-Mass.
Please, tell all your friends, young or old, brakes or none to get down to St Martins church at the Bullring at 2pm ( or 4.30 ) on Sunday and lets have a raz…

Be nice to know who is coming too so please…
feel free to drop a comment down there.
