From JD in Canada. He's definitely on my wavelength - ice lake riding is the best, and the Svartpilen 701 is one of my favourite bikes. GI Where the Detroit River enters Lake St.Clair is where you can find us on the weekend. We had a solid lake this winter and it was time to break in this fresh Svartpilen 701. I found set of rear Michelin tires to stud for this odd sized wheel set and 900 screws later, we were good to go. My Buddy JR got me out of the ice for the first time 1
Dimitri Coste sent us a link to this short film by Mark Karinja, that features our friends from the Vancouver Flat Track Club. Dimitri wrote, 'Symmetrical vision disturbance making this imaginary drop-shaped track so special to me & my eyes. Seen in « Chasing Silence », this is somewhere in Canada, and so so attractive!' I'm pretty sure the track is Pemberton in British Columbia. Find out more about the Vancouver Flat Track Club. #VancouverFlatTrackClub #Canada #DimitriCoste
Thanks to the wonders of, well, I'm not entirely sure what, Vancouver, Canada's favouerite sons, The Vicious Cycles have made a new song about lockdown, in lockdown!

Grass is always greener, right? #music #punk #viciouscycles #Canada
