"Come and watch our best Women and "B" category riders take on Steve Hill and the "A" Train in the feature event, 'The Wheelrace'. 1 mile of torture in this handicapped event, seeing the Women and B's getting a head start on the A's and watch them all converge for victory in the finishing straight. Full program of racing for Women, B's and A's. Also featuring our popular Bicycle Little League Kids.


NO BRAKESwill be turning two years old and having our grand opening at our new location 586 Woodward Ave. in Grant Park. We will be throwing our third annual shop alleycat, so expect the usual racing, prizes, party, and beer.

Critical Mass May 2009

Here's the drill. It's the last Friday of the month, the weather is great this time of year, not to hot, not to cool. We have been getting a lot of rain, so everything is beautiful and clean. Come out on some wheels, a bike, two bikes, skates, skateboard, grocery cart, wheel chair. It really doesn't matter, just come out and ride around the city with friends new and old, see parts of the city you may not have seen and share with community.

Race Report: Dirt, Sweat, and Gears 2009

The following is a glossary of terms used in the DSG 09 Race Report:
1.glud \ˈgləd\ Mud with a sticky, slippery, clay-like consistency. Globs onto everything and weighs stuff down. Glues itself to your body and your bike. Very slippery and squishy to ride over.
2. crud \ˈcrəd\ Mud similar to glud, but slightly dryer and more prone to packing up on your tires. Usually contains grass which it cleverly deploys into your derailleur. Somehow even heavier than glud.
3. gloop \ˈglüp\ Mud that is runny and wet, like diarrhea. Lighter in color than glud or crud, gloop is light enough to fly in the air and coat your face.
