Pirate Alleycat 1pm 26th May, London Fields
14.05.07 by Buffalo Bill

I am NOT the organiser of this! See the forum for more details. It’s not an Audax, but I am sure that everyone will have fun, as long as they remember that you can’t ride a bike with an acre of road rash where your arse used to be. Yes, that’s right: crashing in Alleycats is for muppets and Marco.

This event is a fund and awareness raiser for London’s Calling, the messenger culture extravaganza which is happening around the weekend of 28/29th July. London’s Calling is the pre-event of the 2007 Cycle Messenger World Championships, taking place in Dublin 3rd – 5th August 2007. If you want to find out more about London’s Calling, or to meet the organisers, then this is the place to do it.

Is it time to watch the video of Marco riding his bike into a wall again? Yeah, I thought so too.

  1. ...time to give up bill…

  7. twitch, you know I just ride around the things slowly, enjoying myself and trying to come last, and I certainly don’t know how ‘it’s done’- maybe medium rare? And if they’re young whippersnappers that automatically makes me a has been balding old git (true), but yeah, I am thinking about coming inshore to flex a bit of the old yo ho and buckle my swash me hearties. argh, but only if I can do the course with a bucket over my head.
