The Tour de Melburn: Australia’s Summer Time Fun Ride

This sounds like a lot of fun! From the minds that bring you Melburn Roobaix each year comes the Tour de Melburn:

“After a decade of pounding the pavé during the coldest and wettest month of the year – the Tour de Melburn is a summery twist on the cobbled classic – Melburn Roobaix. Inspired by the big bike race in France, FYXO is injecting all the fun and festive spirit – without the racing. Just like the other Tour, riders will ride in teams of two covering all points of the compass, using their brains in the pursuit of glory. Teams accumulate time bonuses for finding Melburn landmarks, far and wide, high and low. The teams with the most time bonuses up their sleeves will be awarded limited edition Yellow, Green and Polka Dot jerseys.

A Grandest Prize will be raffled to any team that makes it to the finish by days end just for enjoying the day with us – whether they make it first or last, with a musette full of points or none. The inaugural year is one not to be missed.

Vive Le Tour!”

A Nice 2016 Melburn Roobaix Recap Video

The Melburn Roobaix is a ride that takes riders all over the city of Melbourne, Australia, seeking out cobbled back-alleys and streets. It’s a “fun ride” with no real competitive edge to it and finishes with a big after party at an old velodrome. Here’s a nice video recap from this year’s event and see the full race report at FYXO!

Melbourne is a special place for me, with its unique riding and exceptional local cyclists. Recently, the Vanilla Workshop and Speedvagen took to the road, er air, to hop Down Under for an Australian Fit Tour in Sydney and Melbourne. Behind the lens in the latter was Andy White from FYXO who captured some great moments from Sacha and company’s time at Shifter Bikes and on the streets.

Andy over at FYXO has been altering modern Campagnolo components for some time now. First stripping the clear anodizing, then sending them off to an engraver, before polishing them up. FYXO’s handywork has been featured here on the site so much that even Campagnolo took note and contacted Andy to see if he’d feature Athena 11 in a similar manner.

All he needed was a frame and a client… and boy did he ever. Head to FYXO for the full scoop!
