Two Men and a Baby...

We had decided to host an Alleycat Race in Boise. We heard that someone had thrown one in the past 'maybe' but were sure that we were bringing something new to the city of trees. We posted flyers everywhere with 3M spray adhesive. We put flyers on bikes. We got the attention of Thrive magazine who wrote a story about our race. When I showed to the interview at the Lucky 13 with a baby instead of a bike they were definitely disappointed but, you know, life happens. The article sucked anyway so whatever.  When we set up for registration at the Lucky 13 we were giddy with excitement and started drinking early. As we gathered a crowd of participants passers by were wondering what the hell was going on. I think we registered just over twenty racers that included everyone from the spandex and don't rag-clad enthusiast to the tattooed cruiser riding cool guys to everyone in between. Stops were as follows:
Start/Finish Lucky 13 Garage
Dutch Goose
Broadway Bar
Neurolux
Hot rod pick-up truck, Ft Boise
Harry's Hyde Park
Old Pen
We can't find our list of winners list but am pretty sure that Jason Bauer won this one to set a precedent and was very closely followed by Nikos Sawyer. It sure was fun. So much fun that we decided to start planning Hellracer....

SATURDAY MAY 2...

The VeloPark ho-down has been washed out. Don't ride all the way out there in hopes of seeing some gnarly, downhill dirt action. It's nothin' but mud, mud, mud.
The VeloCache Alleycat is still happening though. 
Peep THIS SITE at 5pm and get hot.
If by some small miracle my sinus infection clears up enough to make me want to be vertical for more than 25 minutes, I'll see ya there. Super bummed to be missing this one, the format is killer and will undoubtably be a good time.
