Tom La Marche has a typical fixed day out bouncing off British landmarks on his Charge

Here's the latest in Charge's ongoing series of videos featuring their sponsored fixed gear riders. Fixed 4 features their American rider Tom La March on a flying visit to Britain and enjoying "a typical fixed day out". Blimey he didn't have get about… pinging around Southern England. It must have been a long day. 

So Tom hits Gold Hill in Shaftesbury famous for the 70s Hovis ad - Victoria Pendleton recently rode up it for the new Hovis ad, he's all over Bath practically dive-bombing the old road.cc office around the corner from the Royal Crescent, plus the local skate park, and our fave bit of bike test shooting park, before being chased out of town by irate locals for bouncing off the Abbey walls… maybe we made that bit up.

Then it's off down to Brighton to ride the awesome disused railway tunnel that's been converted for skaters and BMXers, before heading up to the Big Smoke… oh, and he manages a visit to Charge HQ, all of which is interspersed with some pretty cool riding… although dare we say it, he's not quite up to Chris Ackrigg standard just yet although what do we know, watch it and judge for yourselves.

Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for road.cc mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the road.cc team. He's remarkably good at it.

It's in Brighton… it was built by Nike for their Tunnel Jam and then left in place for the local BMXers
