Wiggle 2011 New Forest Sportive ... on a Single Speed

by PlatosCarriage   April 13, 2011  

I'm doing the above ride this Sunday. Anyone else going to be tackling the relatively flat-looking terrain of the new Forest on a single-speed or fixie? I'm sure I can't be the only one. Hope I'm not.

If my brother-in-law speeds off on his carbon-fibre road-bike I might need some company Smile

I can't imagine you'll be the only one facing up to the challenge with a single speed bike, report back and let us all know how many fixies and single speeds and any other non-race bikes show up! Smile

I did the Lionheart the other week on a 2spd and didn't see any bikes with less gears than that...

Does it go up Balderwood?

If so, not cool on SS Thinking
