HOW THE RACE WILL WORK
The race is open to anyone with a fixed gear bike! We want the race to bring fellow fixed gear friends together and have a bit of fun, with the chance to win some awesome prizes. Remember, you’ll be riding on roads, so please ride safely and wear a helmet, we don’t condone any reckless riding, just have fun and take it easy! As well as the race itself we’ll be having a track stand competition too, so use those red lights to your advantage and get practicing!
CHOOSE YOUR PATH
5 checkpoints, which are all chip shops around Bristol. All 5 must be visited but you can ride to them in any order, the route you take is up to you! Being Bristol, there are a few hills in the way.
POINTS MEAN PRIZES
It’s points-based! The first rider to a checkpoint gets 10 points, the second gets 9 points, etc but the route you take will mean you can’t possibly be first at all 5 chip shops so your tactics and route planning come into play!
OM NOM NOM
Not lightning fast? Good for you, because you can elect to order & eat a battered sausage at a checkpoint and get 5 bonus points. So, do you race fast to get the first place or go mellow but eat sausages, it’s up to you!
DO I NEED TO REGISTER OR DO ANYTHING?
Nope! Simply turn up on the day and we’ll get you sorted! Just bring yourself, your bike, your helmet, and some pocket money for battered sausages and you’ll be right as rain.

FIXED ‘n’ CHIPS has been very fortunate in the way of sponsors, and we have a tonne of stuff to give away as prizes on the day. Hopefully, with the amount of swag we have, there should be something for nearly everyone, so everyone’s a winner. The person who comes in overall first though, is in for a real treat, in the form of a complete bike, the ‘Vice’, given to us by the headline sponsor State Bicycle Co. Now, if that’s not worth racing for, I don’t know what is! Also, the first-placed Man & Woman will receive a hand-carved wooden trophy in the form of a giant chip fork, carved by Tom Milner and laser engraved by Amalgam Models.
