What are you guys doing next year between June 17-18? If you don't have anything else to do come visit Sweden and take part in the race called Vätternrundan. It's a 300km (187 miles) ride around a big fucking lake.
Last year we were about 10 people from the Swedish forum fixedgear.se that stood on the starting line. Some did the race on about 11h, myself and a four others did it in 14h (lunch, massages and stuff included). Not that good of a time, but it was fun.
This year I didn't start, I had payed the entry fee, but now days I'm to fat to make even 100km. Any way, this year there were also about 10 guys riding fixed gear who entered the race, and five of them finished in 9h 52m, that's a pretty good time for 300km riding fixed.
So next year, it would be fun if there was some British riders that came along. I promise I'll buy a few beers after the race for the British riders that make it over to Sweden and around the lake.
