2009 Bang King Track Race

Saturday I'm off to the Keirin Velodrome in Ishikawa prefecture for the annual Bang King Track race. Many of the Nagoya Nuts will be in attendance as well as cyclists from around Japan (here are some picts from last year's race. We expect a weekend of racing, riding and BBQ, but most of all a great excuse for cyclist to get together and have fun. This event tends to be casual and light-hearted even though many race to win. I'm not racing since I don't have a fixed gear this time around. Maybe next year I'll muster up the guts to ride fixed. I'll post pictures of the event next week.

August Alley Cats

We had a good turnout Saturday night for the monthly alley cat race. This time the race resemble more of a Critical Mass ride through downtown Nagoya than a race. It was fun nonetheless and the night was just right. Afterward we met at Cafe Palwwr for a Kakigori (shaved ice) eating content. Did I mention they you had to eat all of the ice topped with chili sauce? Major ice headache.
