Do you have what it takes to win the Sly Fox skid comp?

Share Canberra's trusted news:

CYCLING commuters who trundle down Sullivans Creek into Civic have for some time enjoyed the wonders of The Sly Fox; a pop up coffee shop on the banks of the creek.

A tradition has built up of cyclists stopping for a coffee trying to impress the owner Patrick Dillon with the most impressive skid they can manage.

He’s now announced the competition is being formalised with prizes to be awarded in the following categories:

  • Standard (brakes)
  • Elite (fixxie)
  • Supreme (ratbikes, choppers, tall bikes).

The brainchild of Steve Callahan points for length and style will be judged by Pat.

The trophy will be awarded on September 5.

Participants receive free cake with their coffee and the prize includes a week of free coffee.

“It’s going to be a tough competition,” Patrick says.

“It’s about bringing the childhood joy back to bikeing. I remember when biking was all about skids not Lycra.”

Patrick reminds all participants to be mindful of the safety of both themselves, others, and Pudding the Pug.
