October continues to rock here in the big city. Just coming off the MASH premiere and all that went with it…next up:
Saturday, October 13th is the final race of the most elaborate series in alleycat history.
CK and his team have been working out all the details for an event which should be a fitting end to this intense season. (of course we still have the Halloween weekend and Cranksgiving…but that is another story)
BATTLE FOR BROOKLYN.
For those participating and paying attention. B4B is the final race.
Race is starting at 1500 hrs (3pm). It was pushed back because peoples want to go to Trexler Town in Pennsalvania, one of the largest bicycle swap meets. (see posting)
The race is actually a series of mini-games and short races including a team time race, an individual hill climb, relay race, drag racing, a skid slalom race, tricks, stands and an alley-crit.
This will be a spectator friendly event with group rides to the start/finish lines of the various contests. The site 5 boro generals, will be posting a schedule so people can find out where all the action is.
Who will take it all: Dan, Crihs, Austin, Pete? Come find out.
Then on Sunday:
Squid from cyclehawk couriers wanted to have this posted for a great cause:
This is a group ride (not a race) for all riders to donate to a man who has done a lot for the cycling community.

Last fall, Fernando Cuevas was diagnosed with kidney cancer, and he has been battling the disease ever since. Fernando has touched the lives of many young bike racers, including my own, and has made an impact in the cycling community through his involvement in the America’s Cycling Team program as well as his time spent at Kissena velodrome.
This is a ride for anyone, racers and non-racers alike, to show support for Fern and his family. It will begin at the Central Park Boathouse at 8 AM on October 14. A race flyer will be available soon. 100% of monetary contributions not necessary for putting on the ride will go directly to Fernando.
Thank you so much for your support!
