Attempting 150 Miles Fixed

Posted on

Despite the recent wet weather Sunday morning was dry and much warmer than anticipated even though there was a strong westerly wind. We set off in force with 6 members of Southsea Fixed Gear, but after 25 miles Jesse, Tony and Ingrid turned for home due to work and family commitments. Leaving just Ben, Kirill and myself (Andy) with the remaining 125 miles.

Summer Solstice, Longest Day Ride 2014

Posted on

Whilst reading a blog about cycling in New Zealand I came across the tradition of riding all day during the longest day of the year, Summer Solstice. Being the southern hemisphere this is on the 21st of December, where as here in England its the 21st of June. This idea lead us to convince a few other member of Southsea Fixed Gear to set their alarms early and join us for a 04:45 start.
