Posted on
  • Hi guys,
    I don't know if I can post this here but I try.


    My friend Thibs and I are riding track bike since few years now and came into bending wheels, pinching tires, scratching frames, breaking peadals… Yes we are doing tricks on fixed gear bikes and we love it so much that we finally decided to make an event in Paris in order to support the local scene, riders and fixed gear industry.

    As a first edit, this event has not for a purpose to gather all international event but we would be of course glad to welcome guest rider from abroad. The main purpose is to figure out what the fixed gear street is in France and what it will be tomorrow. So people feel free to join for the big fest on March 28th.

    The contest consist in two main categories:

    Tricks (is on the ground) and Street (more aerial). Riders cane sign in both categories of course

    Thanks to all the support!

    SPOT : Paris La Défense, Place des Degrés
    WHEN : MARCH, 28th 2010

  • Anybody up for this? I'm no where near good enough to enter, wheelies and barspins wouldn't get me very far! However i'd be more than up for going over to Paris for the day to watch the festivities. Would have to look into getting bikes over there but i'm sure it wouldn't be too much hassle.

  • I would LOVE to go. I've been itching to go to Paris for ages.
    Lets see if my personal injury settlement comes through in time :p

  • i went a few months back so with any luck i should be able to remember my way round a bit. It would be cool to go over there with a few people, hopefully we can get a small group together.

  • Paris is tiny, (compared to london that is). I reckon its definetly worth going, bike on the eurostar and your there in 2 hours!

  • Yes Paris is very Tiny,

    We will organize a small ride to go to the spot, so you can meet people and your sure to find the spot :)

    I note that registration is free so you have nothing to lose. And you can enjoy your day to ride with new people !

  • I'm gonna come down and check it out, although it's a bit easier for me since I moved to Paris a few weeks ago!

  • would you need a bike box/bag to take the bike on the eurostar, i'm guessing yes.

    You don't infact.

  • i'm gonna be about so will come check it out. can't do any tricks though, alleycat/sprints would be more my thing.

  • You don't infact.

    I looked into this recently and you did. I came back from Slovenia with a bike in September and it ended up being the most awkward part of my journey, had to get trains to Calais and then the ferry because I didn't have anything to put a bike in!

  • so who is comming ? we hope to see you there.

    The night before the contest we will organise a "Tourist" ride in Paris it will be very fun !!
