Tour de Retard - 2009

I'm kind of thinking about participating in this years Tour de Retard, it's a +100km bike race with single speed bikes, both fixed and free wheel kind of bikes.

It's partly a celebration of the old school bikers that competed on bad roads with gravel.

Started to play around with different gear ratios on my Surly Pugsley, ended up with a 44/16 set-up, but I', afraid it will be a tad too heavy for my poor legs...

A video from the 2005 Tour de Retard, from Boe:s youtube page:


Or I might just go with the Crescent racer in single speed set-up...
