Major Taylor Project Spin-a-Thon


On rollers too

I attended the Major Taylor Project Spin-a-thon yesterday afternoon at the West Seattle All Star Fitness. Cyclists spun to raise funds to get inner cities kids on bikes. They all had a good time too.

MTP is a year-round, youth development cycling program produced by the Cascade Bicycle Club Education Foundation, integrating bicycling, healthy living, bicycle maintenance, road safety awareness, and the importance of working toward individual goals.

Seattle has a very diverse zip code and once MTP participants, get their bikes, they set goals like riding from Seattle to Portland.

At the end of the 3-hour spin cycle, they raised $14K and expect to hit well over 15K with matching donations.

A Prog-Rock Theme

These Velocity eyeball rims could go on a cool Allan Parsons Project-themed bike: an Eye in the Sky bike.

If Prog-rock wasn’t your thing, could go with Dio Evil Eyes tribute bike as well. Having written this now, wonder WTF bike these would go on and do hope to see it. An ironic, fixie maybe?

Dupont Breaks Mixtes

Don’t know if this videos is a Danny Macaskill diss or Dupont just wanted to prove you don’t need a sponsored ride from an energy drink to do tricks on a bike. More likely he’s one of those cyclists that just breaks shit. We all know one or more. Bro that can’t go on a ride without a part falling off.

Why he picks Mixtes don’t know either. Would make the narrative more interesting if they welded one that he couldn’t break. HT Cycleboredom.
