Rolled over to last nights Celluloid Cycles screening and bumped into the usual suspects. The films were fun, but the best part was winning a show bag!
They had questions for the showbags and the one I got was: Have you ever ridden fixed gear on single track? Duh. I nearly had to start breaking skulls for it, but I quickly moved to quash any dissent. Inside was one of those Sexy Lagers, cheese grips, socks, a few issues of One Mag, a pair of glow in the dark condoms + lube and some Shifter Bikes decals.
So if you do go to any of the sessions, make sure you’ve got a quick answer ready, though I don’t know if they’re having showbags at every session.
I saw him a couple of years ago. He does some amazing stuff.
The best trials course I’ve seen was on Sooty Park a while ago. The guys were hopping from a river bank, onto rocks in the river, then back onto the bank a bit further down the river. Then it was up the bank and up onto a stone wall, and off the other side.
Imagine all the damage they do to themselves practicing this stuff.
