Learn how to ride a fixed gear bike

For the Sur Place exhibition Mediamatic is organizing a workshop where you can learn the basics of riding fixed gear. For the daredevils, there's also an option to learn flashy tricks, like skidding or track stands. There are two half-day workshops, on August 7 and 14.

Fietsles workshops on Saturday August 7 & 14

Trainer, experienced fixed gear rider Keng Pereira, will give a short introduction on fixed gear, illustrated with some home-made footage. You will go outside and practice at Keng's favorite cycling spots. After that you should have the guts to ride our indoor track. Keng makes sure you'll get all the help you need. Once you get the hang of it, you'll never want to ride your normal bike again!

Everybody is welcome to participate! Just click on the RSVP button on our website.
