â€œIt is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are ..â€ – Ernest Hemingway– Saw this on Cycleangelo blog today and reminded me of the great experience of travel and biking.
DC Alleycat races are always a blast. The courier community always knows how to put on a good show and for out-of-towners it’s always a great way to see the city.
Here is an upcoming night race to benefit RVA’s NACCC.
from their Facebook page:
Washington DC’s late night alleycat is back!
Registration will be at the Looking Glass Lounge starting @ 8 PM. Enjoy awesome food, a $5 Jim Beam + Natty Boh special and stay warm before the race!
The main event starts @ 10 PM and will take you on a cold, long, tough course thru our nations capitol. First place will get a custom Seagull bag, and there will will be prizes for First Fixed and First Out of Town as well.
A killer after party will follow with a huge raffle to benefit our friends putting on the NACCCs in Richmond. More details on that later.
Cost to race will be $10 and will include a free FoF2 t-shirt!
Oh, and if you plan on racing you may want to bring a front light…trust us!
