This weekend its NACCC-Boston

This weekend…

Beantown becomes the host to the North American Cycle Courier Championships. The nations messengers battle it out to hold the crown of who is the fastest. This year is a break from past events with an open traffic work simulation causing some debate among the seasoned veterans who believe these events should only be held on closed courses. This is similar to the debate about weather non-couriers can attend. Either way, if you enjoy biking in the city come on out to Boston for a great time weather you compete or not. Here is a schedule: (thanks Prolly)
