Steep hills, deep forest, calm dark little lakes and singletrack trails in abundance. With fixed gear bikes we ride Stockholm's best trails - without brakes. Riding fixed lifts the cycling to a new level of challenge and effort and we will have an hour of total presence, minimalism and biking joy completely without rattling of mechanical technology.
You have a strong cycling experience already, you are comfortable with your fixie in urban/city riding and perhaps also on a mountain bike.
If you have your own fixie with wide tires (50 mm+) and rather low gearing, that would be your best chouce, but make sure to use SPD pedals. Straps or clips can simply be too dangerous for trail riding. If you do not have the right kind of trail ready fixie, I have a loaner bike but you need to bring your own SPD pedals and shoes and we'll mount them before riding.
We will start and end in Bagarmossen/Kärrtorp.
Somewhere along the way we'll also stop for a trailside fika and the usual bike talk.
Contact Erik regarding bike hardware in advance. All riding is performed under your own responsibility. Fixie riding off-road requires strong physics and a responsible carefulness.
Erik Herou is the founder of Heroux Cycles and has been riding mountain bikes since the nineties and fixie since 2004. Fifteen years back the two perspectives met, to try out trail riding with fixed gear MTB and there was no way back. When not in being busy with cycling, Erik works as an engineer, with a degree in computer science from KTH, Stockholm.
