Metric Century Start: 8:00am
Alleycat Start: 9:30am
After Party starts at 12:00pm

Meric Century (62 miles):
Hills. About 35 of them. At least 20 between 8% and 12% gradient (thats between "this sucks" and "oh f**k!") with options including a +18% a**kicker and a short burst of Paris-Roubaix style pave.
The course winds its way through downtown Atlanta and the surrounding neighborhoods for 62 miles giving you views of beautiful old
neighborhoods, wonderous industrial vistas, and the homes of people who have way more money than they know what to do with.
The route is never more than 6 miles away from downtown Atlanta and is almost entirely serviced by MARTA busses.
Rest stops will be provided as well as a SAG vehicle which will be on call for emergencies.
Convenience stores are everywhere if you need a quick pit stop.
If you want to combine your love of climbing hills with your lust for riding in traffic and your desire for bad city streets, this ride has everything you need. (It's a Sunday morning so there probably won't be a whole lot of traffic really)
Same hills, you choose the order, you choose the route.
32 mandatory climbs ranging between 5% and 18%
All hills must be completed to compete for prizes.
Placement based on time only.
Prizes for top overall riders and top fixed/ss.

Race start: 9pm, Oct 14
registration/sign-up starts 8:30pm
On October 14, I will give you Albany's first (to my knowledge) alleycat, a bike race playing in traffic on a lovely autumn Saturday night, ending at a comfortable neighborhood bar that serves up decent brews and cheap za.
There will be art! Scenery! Maps! Carrying stuff! Nervous state troopers! Basic math! And some of the finest tarmac in the city of Albany. Ride any bike or trike you like; as long as it's got wheels and pedals and is you-powered, it's all good. Don't think you need to be Lance Armstrong's second testicle, this'll be just as much of a good-spirited ride as it will be a race.
Entry fee gets you a neato spoke card and a shot at being the baddest ass in the Capital Region (along with the purse).
Pre-registration via email and Paypal/personal meetup welcome and encouraged. Mostly so I know how many spoke cards to make as those ****ers get expensive fast.
Its gonna be fun!
I forgot to post this here.....for the chicago kids and any other midwesterners.
