Oops. Did anyone (TimArchy?) post about the copycat race?

Of course I realize now in my stupor that today is Saturday and the race has already occured.

Rochester, MN Food Drive Alleycat

The 2nd annual, Rochester Labor Day Food Drive Alleycat bike race

This is an alleycat, where at the start, I'll give you a list of items that you will need to purchase from various grocery stores around town. You can only purchase one item at each store and receipts will be needed. At the end, the first rider back with all the items (and receipts) is the winner. All the food gathered will then be donated to Channel-1 food bank the next day.

I have a bunch of sponsors donating prizes. I beleive I have a list of them on our message board.
http://tribes.tribe.net/alleycat/thr...6-68e7447ef82a (copy and paste complete link if it's not clickable)

Riders just need to show up at central park, with a bike, a bag and some money (about $20 to purchase items) at 9:00am. Please let as many people know about this as I would love to give a huge amount of food to donate to Channel-1 this year.

More info can be found at http://tribes.tribe.net/alleycat

Another thread got me thinking. Is there any interest at all in an Alleycat in the Ft Lauderdale/Miami area? I'm new around here(not new to South Florida but new to Fixed Gear and this Forum) so maybe there has been some alleycats in the area? I have a little experience putting bike races together and would be up for putting up prizes and getting sponsers, and putting a fun course together. I'd put this together if I got more than a couple responses(or even a couple) or would be happy helping out someone else if they want to get it going. I'd like to see a Ft Lauderdale To Miami run or the other way around. Make a bunch of stops to keep it from being just a north/south run. Any tips on getting some interest if there is none here is appreciatted also. I got time and enthusiasm to put something like this together. Also a Miami only event would be cool also, being from Ft Lauderdale I have my slightly slanted vision, but understand where the folks may be.

So for anyone in the northwest theres a little cross-town adventure going on in Vancouver, BC (Canadia eh?)

(Accidentally) timed to coincide with the PedalPlay bike weekend so theres going to crazy amounts of bike-related activities going on over the 3 days.

Prizes (frameset!!!) for first across the line as well as a bunch of other categories, and the course is set up to be friendly to out-of-towners as well as locals.

Get amongst it...
