Many apologies for the absence… So many fun things happened this year since I moved to Berlin. The sun is setting earlier. The air is dark and chilly. Woah it’s already December! The end of a year. So a catch up. One more big party is coming up for your all year conclusion! I need more girls to race! ( ´艸｀) 〜♡
+ + THIS FRIDAY December 9, at Keirin Cycle Culture Café. Roll at 8:00pm + +
Pioneers of the global fixed gear bike culture Keirin Cycle Culture Café and Rollapaluza come together for the first ever Rollapaluza roller-race in Berlin.
Keirin Cycle Culture Café is recognized worldwide as the first ever “fixed gear shop” having first opened back in 2004 as a hangout for their messenger mates (all members of Keirin and Rollapaluza are ex-couriers), selling them coffee, bikes and parts and mending their bikes.

The first Rollapaluza roller race was held in a pub in London in 2000 and Rollpaluza involves two riders racing over 500 metres on custom built static roller-rigs with their progress displayed on a huge dial and their times recorded by split-second digital timing, all to the backdrop of cheering crowds and pumping music.

P.S. I’ll tell you about this + more stuff… but later.
