The East London fixie-fixation bike manifests itself in a Red Bull Velodrome open event in York Hall, Bethnal Green. Not your normal size i.e. 2012 Olympic measured velodrome but in a celebratory “World’s Smallest” scaled-down bike-racing track – Scaletfix? – where the athletics are adorned in the everyday aesthetic. Where the riders and the audience are close not only to the action – “where spectators are competitors are that linked” – but also in the desire to Ride.

The repercussions for reproducing the field of play in different shapes and sizes – such as our own (plug coming…) football boxes – mean that we not only improve spectatorship but also athleticism.
