Jacob Ruff launching off the kicker at Future Tense.
It wrapped up only hours ago and Future Tense has already been featured on the daily photo blog Today Might Be. The photographer behind the blog, Tanner, rolled through Cal Anderson and caught this awesome photos of Chris Clappé tweaking some air off the kicker.
Stop by Cal Anderson this Friday as we hold our monthly fixed gear event Future Tense. It always proves to be a good time on two wheels.
Steve showed up to Future Tense with his camera and captured some rad photos from the beginning of the night. Check out more over at Steve’s flickr page.
Be sure to check out the Future Tense flickr pool as well.
Future Tense went down without hitch last night, unless you consider being kicked out of the park by the police a hitch. Some new faces showed up as well as some regulars and it turned out to be a fun and relaxed time. We started things off with a U-Lock pick-up race where groups had to race to a pile of locks and the last one to bring a lock back was out. Chris and Jordo ended up going head-to-head at the final race where Chris took the win. After that, the cops showed up and threatened to hand out tickets to the people drinking beer, so we dipped out to another location. We did a quick track stand event and some footdown before we brought things to a close. Tanner showed up with his camera and snapped this photo of Chris during the trackstand competition. He did an excellent write-up over at his site todaymightbe. Check it out.
This Friday is supposed to be relatively dry so mark your calendars and come shred with us. There will be multiple events that everyone can participate in. It is a free event and very relaxed so don’t be afraid to come out and meet some new riding buddies. All bike types are welcome and there is something for everybody.

Today is Future Tense. I gotta make sure I throw in one last plug. We got sick stuff to give away from Flying Coffin, Coal, Urban Velo, Pryme, Winners Circle, PedalRoom and more. It is going to be a rainy one so we will be heading to an undisclosed parking garage. If you are in the area, come check it out. Also, if anyone has location suggestions for upcoming events please email us or post on the FB page, we are on a constant search for dry spots in the Winter months.
More roller sprints in Richmond hosted by Cultur. Go win some Zlog gear.
The last few weeks have flown by and it is almost time for the next Future Tense. This Friday, meet up at Cal Anderson park for the first one of the new year. Bring some beers and be prepared for wet weather. There will most likely be head-to-head sprints, and a little trick comp, topped off with some footdown. It is going to be a blast, see you there!
Tomorrow in Seattle we are hosting the last Future Tense of 2010. The final destination will be determined by the weather. The events will include Sprints, an obstacle course, footdown and whatever else we can think of. Come on out and bring friends and beer.
