One Country, One Gear – Ryan Stamerro Will Go Cross Country On A Fixed Gear Bike

with 3 comments

Like with a lot of cool bike things that I learn about, I found out about this on Urban Velo. Young bike rider, Ryan Stamerro, will be riding his bike across country this summer. Sure, there’s really nothing special about that. Folks do cross-country bike rides all the time (it’s one of my personal bucket list items). What makes Ryan’s trip a bit different is that he’s going to do it on a fixed gear bike. The entire trip is also meant to bring awareness to Half United.

He’ll also be recording his ride with 35mm photography and through his blog, One Country, One Gear. It sounds like a great challenge and adventure, and I wish him a safe journey.

If you are interested in following his journey and would like to help him get started, click here to see his Kickstarter page.

SXSFixed Number 2

leave a comment »

They’re doing it again. A team of really devoted, cycling enthusiasts are riding from Dallas to Austin for the South By Southwest Festival – all on fixed gear bikes. This started at last year’s SXSW, just to see if it could be done. Since then, the group made another trip to Austin for the ACL (they called their ride ACHell) event in October.

For this year’s SXSW, 13 fixed gear riders will heading out on Sunday to make that journey again. Check out their blog at or follow them on Twitter @sxsfixed. They are also having a SXSFixed Send Off Party tomorrow night from 8-10 at the Texas Theater. Part of the proceeds will go to support the riders.

We wish them a safe ride with lots of tailwind.
