Fixie Friday - What's it all about

 

Every year on Div Fairweather's birthday he puts out a challenge to his Lanterne Rouge brothers and sisters to see if they can either ride up to Norton Summit on a "fixie" or in an equivelant gear on their road bike. For everyone that makes it Div makes a donation to Camfed on their behalf. For everyone that does not make it they make the donation. Camfed is an international non-profit organization tackling poverty and inequality by supporting marginalized girls from sub-Saharan Africa to go to school and succeed, and empowering young women to step up as leaders of change. A very worthwhile cause.

 

I was able to miss the tough ride up the hill this year due to a serious crash I had a few weeks earlier. So as not to miss the fun I plonked myself on the first hairpin bend going up Norton Summit Rd in the pitch black darkness and freezing cold with my cameras set up with flash. Some of the images are in the slideshow above.
