Fixie skid off

Have you ever been to a fixie skid off? Neither had I. This was ages ago, who knows why I am finally posting photos of it now.

This guy was running the show. He seems like a good sort. I think he is a tram driver.

It's a funny mix of a crowd, with people who have been riding fixies for 20 years, then dudes who collect Nikes and then guys with piercings and tattoos and then stand up fellows like Ra and Denny and Chris and Adam.

The skids were sort of funny. Some of the bikes were pretty funny too, like skate shoes that are too carefully laced with no ollie wear.

Rohan has a long, straight skid. Kudos.

The skids were anti-climactic. I hoped for a small explosion at the end, but no.

Ra, suitably nonchalant.

And that was that.

By the way, Anita took me to see the Breeders play! It was incredible, like bathing in all the best memories of my early twenties.
