Staying at the top of your game for a quarter century in any field of human endeavour is a milestone justifiably worth making a bit of noise about. To do so in a line of work where many who try their hand don’t show up for their second day can be described as almost without precedent.

And so it was that in Berlin on Friday the 13th (naturally) the assembled ranks of the German capital’s couriers past and present gathered to pay homage and race in honour of Zorro’s 25 years (and counting) as a King Of The Streets.

Bauhaus lighting mandatory.

May 5th saw the third edition of English Cycle Style take place in Berlin among a crowd of thirsty gin enthusiasts with an interest in neo-traditional cycling products. The event was held at Pret-a-Velo, the new project from longtime Brooks proselytizer and former part-time academic, Dr. Ulrich Gries.

Xylophones, Zebras, Etc.

Aching behind, calloused derriere, eroded fundament, goolies hot… I’m joking! Knifing lesions maraud nads-ward on punishing, querulously rugged sweaty treks unless velocipede wears xquisitely yielding zaddle.

Oops, we forgot to mention Rule 29 regarding “ex” and “x”. And Rule 30 about “One Instance of Orthographic License”. Apologies.

The feast of mildly cryptic, wildly labour-intensive, saddle-centric compositions bestowed upon our Comments Section for the Brooks A to Z Brainathon has caused our panel of judges to think only thoughts of alphabetically consecutive words for the past week.

Even for somebody like Brooks Poet in Residence Ken Wolfe, an A to Z poem can (nearly) take as much time and skill to put together as a Limited Edition green B17 with copper rails and hand-hammered rivets.

Knutsford women’s champ Kat Jungnickel will no doubt team with partner Charlotte at this year’s Brooks Penny Farthing Races

Launched in 2007, the IG Markets London Nocturne is a hugely fun and outrageously well-attended cycling event. On Saturday June 11th it will once again take place at Smithfield Market, and this year as part of the exciting program, Brooks will present the Brooks Penny Farthing Sprint, and the inaugural Brooks Ordinary Trophy,  two racing events no doubt inspired by last years’ decennial undertaking of the Knutsford Great Race.

Chicago and Milwaukee played out an all-American Final at Berlin in 2010.

The lucky few who made it to a Brooks Dealer Of Excellence in April in time to get their hands on one of our Limited Edition “England” mallets will hopefully have already begun the process of breaking them in for the 2011 World Hardcourt Bike Polo Championships, taking place this September in Seattle and presented by Brooks England.

Aesthetically, Brooks can define extraordinary fields. Given his ingenuity, John knew leather materials, not only phenomenally quiescent, redoubtable saddles. The uninformed view whispered “Xanthophyll, you Zombie!”

What does this have to do with a Brooks competition?  Read on fair bicycle user…
