wow, it’s been a long time… well, most of the original praha fixed gear crew have moved on. they didn’t die, just moved to other parts of the world or are too busy with other projects. but, now that it’s getting colder outside and all of the best beer gardens have closed or are closing… here we are again. there is lots to talk about, but here’s just a quick post:

this Friday we have Mistrovství České Republiky v Single Speedu 2011 (the unofficial Czech SS championships) in Nové Město pod Smrkem at the Singltrek Centrum. it starts at 15:30 and it’s roughly a 18km course. there will be lots of SS fun, mixed with a lot of drinking afterwards. there is cheap accommodation for those who want to party until the wee-hours and have a place to crash. covert your old MTB or throw some cross tires on that old favorit-fixie you have and ride it monster cross style. who’s got the balls to ride 17km singletrack race fixed and no brakes?

Nice video!

Hey all you wankers! or E-coli III – Beware The Bike Culture

I’m not sure if this is serious how seriously to take this email, but I swear it was received. I’ll post it here in all its glory. In the end, I’m not sure what Rev. Phil wants – a kitchen? A theater? A couch? A round of antibiotics and a package of Action Wipes? Anyway, he’s really disappointed about the response from Prague to his proposed bikeanalia straight outta Portland.

I can say with all confidence that I will not be attending any such performance. My threshold for “creative” genre-bending is breached by MDMA brunch and if I were to “lube my bike’s bottom bracket”, I can assure you it would happen in private. Sorry if it sounds prude, but shit, that seat licking thing, that’s how diseases are spread.

Enjoy 😀

Hi Praha Fixed!

My name is reverend phil. I have been kicking ass all over Portland
Oregon: racing kids bikes downhill, jousting on tall bikes, more than
a few years of polo behind me, and i can drink myself under the table
and wake up and cook amazing meals

AND NOW IM COMING TO PRAHA!

Beyond just biking around drinking beer and enjoying life my team and I are
sharing a collection of erotic bicycle movies.

Yes, bike porn.

We have straight porn, lesbian porn, queer porn, polo porn, mtb porn,
bmx porn, rain gear porn, exercise bike porn and more! Each movie is a
cinematic triumph for healthier lives via good sex and good cycling.

For 4 years we have traveled around North America showing these
inspiring works of bikesexuality and now, for the first time, we are
in Europe! This is a pretty special thing. We don’t sell DVDs and you
can’t watch many movies online. The ONLY way to see them is when we
visit and local bikers set up a screening.

Our polo/porno history goes back a ways. Seattle asked us to play when
they hosted the North American Hardcourt Championships 2 years ago. We
had multiple screenings and the drunk fuck polo players screamed and
laughed for hours. But just last month we visited Leipzig for an
alleycat race and decided to do an impromptu show in an attic that
night.  It was great!

I am planning on playing polo regardless, but if you can help us with
a show then I would be REALLY stoked.

We would love to play in Praha Wednesday June 15th. That is very soon, but
it is totally possible. We have our own projector, but we need a
space, some chairs, and an appropriate audio system for the space. Oh
and we need some mature bikers!

We have asked around but so far the response from Praha has been kinda
pathetic. It makes me sad, because ive wanted to visit prague for more
than a decade!

But check it!

UAC Dráhový pohár 2011 / UAC Track Cup 2011

Velodrom Třebešín (333,33m)

Po ročnej pauze, keď sa organizátori z UAC (Unie Amaterských Cyklistů) nedohodli so správcami Třebešínskeho velodrómu na podmienkach prenájmu, je tu v roku 2011 opäť dráhový pohár, nazvaný ČMSS a.s. velodrom Cup, a pretekári sa môžu tešiť na 6 dielov. Dva z nich sa uskutočnia na velodróme v Lounech (dĺžka 440m), a tieto podujatia sú určené aj pre cestné bicykle. Zvyšné 4 diely sa budú konať v Prahe na Třebešíne (dĺžka 333m) a sú určené iba pre dráhové bicykle s pevným prevodom, bez bŕzd.

Na každý diel su pripravené rôzne dráhové disciplíny, zoradené do tematických celkov, napr. sprint omnium (200m s letmým štartom, časovka na 1km, šprinty). Všetky preteky sú vypísané aj pre príchodzích, nielen pre členov UAC. Štartovné je 70 Kč a začína sa neskoré popoludnia. Ak si chceš vyskúšať aké to je pretekať na dráhe, teraz máš možnosť!

Kalendár celého seriálu vyzerá nasledovne:

  • 25. máj (st), Louny, 500m šprint + časovka na 3km
  • 8. jún (st), Třebešín, Sprint Omnium (200m s letmým štartom, časovka na 1km, šprinty)
  • 29. jún (st), Třebešín, Omnium (200m, časovka na 3km, hladký pretek, vyraďovací pretek)
  • 13. júl (st), Třebešín, časovka jednotlivcov na 3km
  • 25. aug (št), Louny, 500m šprint + časovka na 3km
  • 07. sep (st), Třebešín, Omnium (200m, časovka na 3km, hladký pretek, vyraďovací pretek)

After a quiet last year due to disagreement between the organizers from UAC (Union of Amateur Cyclists) and managers of the Třebešín velodrome about reasonable rent, the track cup, called ČMSS a.s. velodrom Cup is back in 2011 with 6 sessions. Two of them take place at the velodrome in Louny (440m), which are open for people on road bikes, too, due to milder sloping of the track there. The remaining 4 are planned to happen in Prague at Třebešín (333m) and only track bikes with fixed gear and no brakes are allowed on the track.

A different set of track disciplines are scheduled for each session, with a common theme, e.g., sprint omnium (200m with flying start, kilo, sprints). All the races are open for everybody, not just UAC members, with a starting fee of 70 CZK and start in late afternoons. If you always wanted to try racing on the track, this is a great opportunity!

The full schedule of the track cup is as follows:

  • May 25 (Wed) at Louny, 500m sprint + 3km TT
  • Jun 08 (Wed) at Třebešín, Sprint Omnium (200m flying start, kilo, match sprints)
  • Jun 29 (Wed) at Třebešín, Omnium (200m, 3km TT, scratch, elimination)
  • Jul 13 (Wed) at Třebešín, 3km individual pursuit
  • Aug 25 (Thu) at Louny, 500m sprint + 3km TT
  • Sep 07 (Wed) at Třebešín, Omnium (200m, 3km TT, scratch, elimination)

jaro je tady

that’s right, spring is here! well, unfortunately, that means the spring rain is here, too. so, it’s time to bust out the rain gear, race blades and add a few meters to your skid stop. first off, there are a few events coming up:

jarní alleycat – 16th of April · 13:00 – 16:00

this might actually be the closest thing to a real alleycat that prague has seen… well, maybe. 🙂

and then there is the

Pražské cyklojízdy / Prague Critical Mass – 28th of April 18:00-??

it’s always fun to ride and extend your middle finger to the thousands of douche bags, who are stuck waiting a whole 10 minutes, in their cars during the critical-mass. i know it only makes these škoda-jockeys hate us even more… but, very moment counts during this biannual event.

one last thing i want to put out there before i finish this quick update…

bike polo, bike polo, bike polo.
i’ve got some sad news, my friends… it looks like there is a chance we might lose our spot at the Malešice rink. it’s not 100%. but, we are currently searching for a new spot, just in case. any thoughts and suggestions are welcome. the good new is… in the near future, we will be getting our lazy asses up and running with some new organization that could include membership benefits and an actual league . don’t worry, we are still the same polo playing, beer drinking, fixie riding assholes. but, with a little organization, we could possibly host a tournament this year… 🙂 there are even rumors flying around about sponsorship, custom wheel guards and some new top-secret mallet construction. stay tuned!

that’s it, i’m done. remember… don’t be a bunch of bitches… keep riding, rain or shine!

Speckled Green Map

The Auto*Mat guys, always adept at polishing up the edges of thunderclouds until they look something like chrome, have published this “Green Map”, which includes cycling-friendly spots in the center of Prague. It’s a vaguely situationist undertaking, and pretty cool to see. These folks really are trying to put a brave face on and start changing perceptions a bit. The map has some unique features, one of the most interesting of which is a time legend – a legend which shows how long it would take an average walker or cyclist to cover a certain distance. You can also use it to locate a bike rack in the center of Prague – the first person to photograph all five and post them here wins a super prize!

Auto*Mat are looking for partners and advertisers to help bring the map online. Given the stated mission of the undertaking, it sort of begs the question: why didn’t they save the paper and just put the thing online in the first place? Will another free throwaway map really help convert the great “over-washed” masses or just create more backpack lint and white space for Americans to scribble “eshtay yeden peevo proseem”? Either way, it’s got to be more effective than the graffito scrawled on the construction barrier at the ongoing experiment in urban vomit that is the Narodni trida metro plaza. “We Love the Auto*Mat” writ large in red spraypaint beside “Fuck Police Ganga Anarchist!” or whatever, only reaffirms to the Tesco-shopping public that anyone who cares about their environment is a young white twat with greasy dreadlocks, an underfed dog and too much free time.

Auto*Mat ought to organize a “rychla akce” down there this weekend to repaint a nice hippy mural on the construction barrier and weld some bike racks onto it as well.
