TRAFIK wants to thank all of our fans worldwide who have liked our Facebook page. We recently broke the 20k mark and are looking forward to posting more cycling videos, fixed gear photos, race recaps, rider interviews and stupid shit about bikes we find online. The support we’ve received from the international community of cyclists, every Like and Share, is what has kept the blog and Facebook page running after 6 long years! THANK YOU!

We haven’t really talked about ourselves much during the past six years. That’s mostly because we are here to talk about you. The riders, the racers, the fixie foos. We’ve had the chance over the years to meet some awesome people that ride bikes, many from LA, some from abroad, all of them now friends. To us, that has been the biggest benefit of TRAFIK.

TRAFIK started as a group of friends who got together to make a fixed gear video. We thought that maybe it would be a movie that our friends in LA would be interested in, but it turned out that lots of people around the world were interested too. A small idea eventually became “To Live & Ride in LA“, and was screened in 17 different countries, at outdoor festivals, dive bar bike nights, and as part of serious film programs. The international buzz helped get the movie on iTunes where it became the #1 Sports movie in the country. For a brief moment we had achieved something we never expected and the popularity of the film reflected how much urban cycling had begun to seep into the mainstream.

Recently we flipped through all of our saved bookmarks for fixed gear blogs and sites from all over the world. There were hundreds of sites that we used to visit and now most of them are gone, or left as a time-capsule of a bygone era. It was depressing looking at photos from 2011, when everyone was riding a fixed gear and it was exhilarating. They look happy as shit…But, we still have that feeling. We still ride and we are still exhilarated everyday. Sites may come and go but Fixed Gear is not dead. Riding bikes with your friends will never die.

There will be some much needed changes to the site up ahead, but we will always represent the riders who take risks, live life and stay young forever, no matter what type of bike you ride. Want to know who our 20,000th fan was? This dude…Gary. No joke.

Tell your friends about TRAFIK and help us get to 30k! Thanks for LIKE #20K GARY!

It was a fun day this past Saturday at the TRAFIK Summer Kickback 2015. We want to thank Daily Dose Cafe and Throne Cycles for helping make it happen. The art was ill, the crowd was rowdy and the race was fast as f*uk. The riders had to race for 45 minutes which really thinned out the pack. Then after 45 minutes it all came down to 5 laps, with the podium being Manny from GLK, Felipe from THRONE, and Willo from Zero Miedo. Shamane Morejon was the top female finisher. Check out the drone action from the Crit below…

For the 3rd year in a row the guys over at Freqnt Flyr have organized the Midnight Marauders Night Century Ride, 100 miles through LA county with hundreds of your closest friends. Led by the OG rideleader Wayne “RideTime” Howard, this event promises to be well planned, with bail points close to transit and multiple stops for food and water. It’s going down this Saturday, July 18th. For full info head over to their FaceBook Event Page: https://www.facebook.com/events/388542027998256/

The ride meets at Union Station at 6pm and rolls out a 7. Make sure to bring all the essentials you need, especially a spare tube. Not much elevation on this route and with re-grouping points it’s a ride that everyone should be able to handle. Here is the full interactive map of the course: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/9257237
