Fixed n Chips 2012

I went down to take a look at the Fixed ‘n’ Chips Alleycat in Bristol by BÖIKZMÖIND. There was a massive turn out with 79 riders taking part, all ready to race to 5 fish and chip shop checkpoints in the quickest time with the hope of collecting the most points. Five bonus points were awarded if you ate a battered sausage or mushy peas for vegetarians. Off they raced with a Le-Man style race start and the winner came back with a time of 31 minutes, pretty impressive. Keep an eye on the official site for the podium finishers. The event was really well setup with a mass of prizes and goodies for all. Great work by BÖIKZMÖIND.
