When we saw the latest video from Azores Fixed we all had the same reaction… “Where the fuck are the Azores?” Halfway between Narnia and Middle Earth, the Azores are an archipelago composed of nine volcanic islands in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. It’s a beautiful place to explore and set out on a cycling adventure outside of the urban scenario.

Bruno Sousa, the founder of Azores Fixed, got together with his friends and began touring the Islands on fixed geared bikes in 2013. Inspired by films of guys bombing hills in San Francisco he sought out to establish the Azores Fixed community and showcase his homeland through cycling and film. With awesome scenery and the tallest mountains on the planet (measured from the ocean floor – check Wiki), it’s easy to fall in love with the little islands. But bring extra tires if you are going brakeless, the roads will eat them alive.

Bruno was out in LA on a visit so we showed him a little bit of what Los Angeles cycling culture has to offer. We rode all over Downtown, Hollywood, up Griffith, and ended with a group ride to Pizzanista. He was surprised by the amount of cyclists in LA, especially while waiting in line for $2 slices. As many of us would love to ride down tropical mountains, Bruno enjoyed slicing through traffic in the dense city and taking in fantastic sunset views of the metropolis we call home.

We had a great time making new bike friends. The next time we have a flight layover in the Azores, we are definitely crashing on Bruno’s floor.

2015

Already 2015 has been a crazy year for us over here at TRAFIK so we wanted to start of the blog with a safety message for all you foos looking to get your ride on. Most of us ride on the street and it’s important to remember that cars are a lot more likely to co-operate with you if they know what you’re doing. So take your lane, be predictable and show cars where you are going. Check out the pic and article below from Bicycling.com -Sign Language

First off, we had a lot of fans in the Christmas spirit but it was especially nice to see our art aficionados. And thanks to google for getting the rest of us up to speed…

And who knew horses had such a mean whip skid? But just for the record, we wouldn’t try this for yourself, assuming you even had a horse…

Finally we would like to leave you with this as a warning coming into new years eve. Beware of your friends, especially when drinking…

Welcome back to the TRAFIK report, our most talked about post from our facebook page. Enjoy a few fixie photos while you kick it this holiday season. So here is what we learned last week…

First off, if you’re throwing a race in Singapore and don’t want to get arrested you might want to think twice…

And if you didn’t already know, Safa is a monster on the track bike! FYI USA, 85 klm is over 52 mph…

Finally, as sad as it is to deface the legendary hangout for LA cyclists, this is still one of the funniest things we saw with our own eyes and glad you enjoyed the pic.
