Slicks’n Slide 11 & TQHCFR 10 years anniversary
Slicks’n Slide is a traditional end of the season alleycat race in Turku. The sub-goal with Slicks's Slides is to arrange them in such a way, that the weather is as bad as possible, but it doesn't always work out here in the south. Originally, the crew has driven, as the name implies, on slicks and fixed gear, but today the state of mind is more like anything goes when it comes to bikes. The boldest bike choices tend to receive the most appreciation.
Shortly about the TQHCFR. It’s an association of fixed-wheel bikes, that was established in Turku in the turn of the decade. TurQHCFixedRiders describes itself as following; “free-form coexistence in cycling and related matters such as polo, speculation and beer drinking”. The original purpose of this union is to be Turku's host at local fixedgear related events, greating the community between bikeminded people and maintain a event calendar. After all these years the ground hasn't changed. Again this weekend, they bring people together and get them riding with their bikes.
