How well do you know NYC? The Winter Alley cat is TrackOrDieNYC’s largest and most difficult alley cat of the year. 8 check points throughout NYC. Registration begins at 1pm at the Naumberg Bandshell (same location as the 2012 winter alley cat), race starts at 2pm. $5 to race, numbered spoke cards will be handed out at the FINISH LINE. Prizes awarded to top 5 riders, 1st female, 1st Santa and DFL. Fixed gear/Single speed ONLY!!! Helmets are strongly suggested. After Party location TBA. Time to start studying NYC.
“As riders we have to stick together. Sure, in a city like New York that’s easier said than done. But in the end we’re all one huge family, albeit a sometimes dysfunctional one.
As a family, we look out for our own. Now, one of our own needs our help. On March 15, 2012, Krys Blakemore was struck by a car on Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn. The accident left her with serious injuries in her right leg, and four operations later, a serious medical bill. “
2013 has been an amazing year for Track Or Die NYC. With T.O.D awesome events such as the always successful 2LapJam, 4/20 race & bake relay, spring formal “drag race”, the summer alley cat and the upcoming 2013 winter alley cat. It’s without a doubt that we are in fact “out here!”.
In a short time span, we have established a very large following. Whether you are a die hard cyclist or someone who lives vicariously through social media, you won’t find a NYC cycling event where T.O.D isn’t in attendance and repping hard. We are not fixie kids (to be honest I despise the term “fixie”) or an elite team of cyclist. We are a group of individuals who have come together from the love of cycling and share the same passion for the fixed gear culture. Oh and beer.
With that being said, my goal going into 2014 is expanding Track Or Die NYC by collaborating with cycling companies and crews to better reach the masses. Over the past few month I have been throwing hints around about an upcoming collaboration with a mystery company. Well I’m proud to present this super limited edition Hold Fast Straps X Track Or Die NYC collaboration. Designed after the T.O.D team jersey, these foot straps provide the quality that Hold Fast is known for. With 2 designs to choose from, the only real question should be the choice “No brakes/No Problem” or “Track Or Die NYC”. Super limited means just that. Exactly 20 Track Or Die NYC X Hold Fast straps to be exact.

I find the Tour De Bronx to be a necessity for T.O.D. We all came together 3 years ago and met on this tour not knowing that we would embark on a journey together. Many of us don’t get to ride together as much as we used to due to work, family or relationships. Having the crew come together to bang out this 40 mile tour through the Bronx is just what I needed. The regulars of T.O.D. and some new faces came out to ride with the crew after following T.O.D. on various social media networks (@TrackOrDieNYC). Check out some of the photos from the 19th Annual Tour De Bronx from T.O.D.’s perspective.
