A good time with some like minded folk.

WHAT IS IT: This is an "alleycat" style event. You must have human powered, wheeled transportation (only restrictions). You start at the designated start point. Each rider will be given a playing card. You will travel from point to point. You will be required to perform tasks at each point before you will be given the location of your next point. You must present your card at each checkpoint and have it initialed, after you complete the task, by the person manning that point. The first one to the finish is the winner.

WHERE IS IT: 2010 location TBD

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE: Anyone who can ride a human powered, wheeled vehicle and is confident in their navigation skills in the city on such transportation.

HOW MUCH: No fee for participation.

OTHER INFO: Bring a bike in good working order. What ever you would normally ride with (helmet, flat repair tools, hand pump, map and compass, etc.) You never know what might be required at the check points :-) Remember to ride safe and obey traffic laws. We will have some type of festivities after the finish.

Countdown begins

Let the two week countdown begin!  The weather looks pretty good.  I've been getting some good feedback from people talking about the alleycat.  I've also been getting in touch with some of the locations and everyone is being pretty cool about it.  Let's all hope for good weather.  I'm also lookin forward to Sunday in Hell afterward.  It should be an awesome day.
