I have always loved the concept of a Flèche, which is the French word for “arrow”. It’s a 24 hour straight rando ending in a city, which in this case, happens to be SF.
For more information on the 2014 Flèche put on by the SF Randonneurs, head over to Boyz on the Hoods.
Related note: I really want to ride Indians Road after watching this!
This Friday, May 2nd, Aaron from Stinner Frameworks will be at Mission Workshop from 7-10pm for a Q&A on frame building. Of course, there will be beer and bourbon.
Head over to Mission Workshop for details. If you do go to this event – you’d be crazy not to – do me a favor and give Stinner a high five. That dude is killing it.

I’ve done this before. Your front tire gets shredded and all you have laying around is a red-backed Vittoria Randonneur. The difference is, I never took a second to document it. Nice one Walton! See more of the Walt’s world at his Tumblr.
