SSWC 2011

It was decided at the Single Speed Worlds in New Zealand that the 2011 event will be held in Ireland.  Now the exact location and date has been set. It will go down in Ballyhoura on August 27th, 2011.

They set up a facebook page so everybody can stay up to speed.

I’m pretty sure this event is going to be amazing, especially after just watching this video:

Now all I have to do is start saving my pennies and get over there. Any readers in Ireland want to let me crash on their couch in August?

  2. Ahhhh Ireland. The birth-place of my Grandmother and drunkardness.

    Always wanted to visit. That vid makes me want to even more.

  3. …& so now i’m wonderin’ if ya can answer me this, me boyo…were them wee fookin’ boardwalks built by the darby o’gill & ‘the little people’ or by daft fookin’ cyclists after a night of too many fine guiness’s in the pub ???…

    …seem ta me as if it could go either way, ya ???…

  4. “…or by daft fookin’ cyclists after a night of too many fine guiness’s in the pub..”

    I vote for that.

    I would shit rolling those boardwalks.

  5. …pretty amazing, huh fff ???…they go on & on in places & that’s some serious work through those boggy stretches & it’d be interesting to know their construction methods…

    …i’ve been amazed by vids of some of the outrageous structures built in british columbia’s north shore but i believe these irish lads have surpassed ‘em in mileage alone…

    …& i was watching that irish route & thinkin’ “looks pretty smooth, bet i could ride every bit of that on the cx bike”

  6. holey-jesus-on-a-popsicle-stick… my bars wouldn’t fit thru some of those trees.

    I really REALLY want to go and represent. I’ll see what I can do.

  7. that link ^^ is pretty much bang on.

    Take particular note of the ‘Time’ issue. Though i’d characterize the two ‘time zones’ for the Irish more simply and as follows. i) “when you’re there” and ii) “when you’re not”.

    Another tip to consider for travelling in Ireland. Hire the narrowest car the rental agency has. Then, tear the wing mirrors off and leave them on the counter with the damage deposit before leaving. This will save time, judgments, awkward negotiations and general smart arsery when returning the car. It will also save you the bother of stopping to retrieve the mirrors from the 4th century stone wall cleverly disguised as a hedge.

    I got a good laugh out of that. Yeah the only way I would motor travel in Ireland is via motorcycle. That goes for most of Europe as well.

  9. If that’s not a drunkcyclist party then for the love of a perfect pour Guinness what the fuck is?
