It’s that time of year and the last one there is a rotten egg. Dash 4 The Cash is an all out sprint from the highest point in San Francisco to the iconic Clocktower. There’s only one route and no telling what the next intersection is going to be like. Shout out to everybody who helps make these events happen. All bikes welcome.
DASH 4 THE CASH is one of the best races of the year. It’s a straight shot, no bars held, race from the top of Twin Peaks to The Island at the Embarcadero. Knowledge of the city means nothing in a sprint like this. Only your bravery and ability to read / dodge traffic. Think of Frogger, but on track bikes for the entire length of Market. Anyways, Robert Gaines & I were in town to join in and be a part of the festivities.
Shout out to MASH’s very own Mike Martin & Jake Ricker for filming the event. They kicked over the footage for me to chop together into this little video jammer for y’all. Jack washed out at the top of the hill but still managed to take home the Fixie gold medal. The rest of us barely made it down the hill and across Market in one piece. I love that the top of Twin Peaks has turned into a skate haven and is grilled with graffiti. RIP Pablo. Plant seeds everywhere you go and we’ll see you at this year’s DASH 4 THE CASH.

The MASH SF World Premiere was nothing short of inspiring. Everyone bolted and by the time they reached their bikes they were swallowed up by smoke. I grabbed my ride and scrambled to find a familiar face to follow, but ended up getting swept up by the rest of the pack. The Alleycat consisted of a 8 stop loop around the city with a vicious climb up Twin Peaks to kick things off. We climbed to the top of 17th and saw a car flip over so we dropped everything and quickly ran to their aid until the EMTs showed up. http://www.wheeltalkfixed.com/2015/mash-sf-world-premiere-2015/ http://www.wheeltalkfixed.com/2015/mash-sf-world-premiere-2015/ http://www.wheeltalkfixed.com/2015/mash-sf-world-premiere-2015/ http://www.wheeltalkfixed.com/2015/mash-sf-world-premiere-2015/ http://www.wheeltalkfixed.com/2015/mash-sf-world-premiere-2015/After the grueling race was over we all linked back up in the Mission at The Lab where they had 10 years of MASH on display along with free drinks and snacks. It was an impressive thing to see the line up of Jerseys and bikes they’ve had over the years. The doors out front of the Victoria Theatre held a line most of the night with people anxious to get in. Once the video started playing the room ignited with a roar which lasted most of the showing. If you didn’t have a chance to see it they’ll be playing it at Interbike next week as well as a bunch of other locations around the globe.
