The 2010 Australian Single Speed Nationals

Would you believe it’s happening again? Apparently people love riding in inappropriate clothing whilst sporting a bad hangover and memories that will haunt them for life. Who can blame ’em? The Aussie SS Nats are always a shitload of fun (I’d imagine, I’ve only actually been to one, and I may be biased). Most of the time you don’t even need to own a single speed bike, so long as you don’t mind sacrificing a gear cable or two. They tell me riding a singlespeed is all about sticking it to the man, so I’d recommend wearing a sex pistols t-shirt on the day. I’ve yet to find any man and stick it to him, but I’m sure you’ll all have more luck than me.

Anyway, enough bullshit. Get involved, you won’t regret it!

Hi all

Registration is now open for the 2010 Australian Single Speed Nationals.

The 2010 Australian Single Speed Nationals will be held in the legendary Majura Pines in Canberra over the weekend of 10-12 September 2010. Festivities kick off on Friday night with racing to be held on both Saturday and Sunday. There’ll be a hill climb, a time trial, tests of skill, courage and determination, and of course the XC race. Camping will be available at Innabaanya campsite adjacent to Majura Pines and there’ll be a fun-filled social program.

Sponsors include Coopers, Mal-Adjusted Bicycle Emporium and shhh! bikes and we’re finalising details with two other major sponsors.

Numbers are limited so get in early with your registration. We’re also bringing back the Australian Single Speed Nationals anti-jersey but you’ll have to be quick as jersey orders will close on 15 July to ensure jerseys are available for collection on the weekend.

Check out the website – – for all the details and to register.

See you in September.
