Cog Magazine Anniversary Party

Cog Magazine celebrates its first year with a party and book launch at AV Aerie (2000 W. Fulton) this Saturday, February 21 from 3-11 PM. Cog Magazine is a slick publication that celebrates all that is simple, beautiful and brilliant about track and fixed-gear bikes. The velodrome's the original home for these machines, but the street lately is now, too. It takes a brave (some may say foolish) soul to ride a brakeless track bike in traffic, and Cog is something of a celebration of the machine and rider.

There'll be giveaways of merchandise and entertainment, most of which will be cycling-specific. The cost is $5, or $3 if you make your living hustling packages on two wheels.
