I went for a road ride today.

I averaged just over 18 mph.

"Big deal" you say "my grandmother can average 18 mph".
Very true.  I've heard your grandma was, ah, "fast".

But James was on the ride too...on his singlespeed...with the same gear he ran at Winding Trails.

The idea was to do some motor-pacing.
But my motorcycle is broken.
So I rode my road bike.
I was going to ride my fixed gear.  I'm glad I chose the regular road bike; I don't think I would have been able to stay in front of him on the fixed!

Does Unibet have a line on Singlespeed-a-palooza?

Fixie Riders are mental. When we did the SBS Sportive, there was a man doing it on a fixie, with a little leather satchel attached to his seat at the back. No one was looking him in the eye as he climbed (past you) round the hills - he would have stolen your soul.
