    this week, may 24, will be the first time so it might be a little wierd but i hope it will be fun. perhaps there will eventually be sprint and skid contests depending on how things are going.
    thanks!
    10 am? pm? every tuesday? street racing, or laps? dude, a little more info, please.

    sorry about that. it is every THURSDAY at 10:00pm. right now, it will be just one or two laps, but depending on how many people show up, i would eventually like to have sprints and skids.
    sorry about all that confusion.

    We have just been informed that we are to throw the D.C. Mayhem Alleycat!!! The race will be held on Sunday, May 29th, 2005.

    The name of this year's version is called the "Holy Mayhem!!!" and will consist of 20 checkpoints scattered throughout D.C. Each checkpoint will be worth 100 points and points will be awarded to finishing order (i.e.: 1st place-100 pts, 2nd place-99 pts, 3rd place-98 pts, and so on down the line).

    Race fee is $10.00. Start time is 2:00 p.m. at Dupont Circle. Registration begins at 1:00 p.m.

    Not sure what the prize list will consist of. It may come down to our secondary motto: "Racing for Victory and Free Beer!!!".

    There will be a keg of Yuengling at the very least! I know the Left Coast is going to ***** because it is the same weekend as the NACCC, but the fact is that I don't know of anyone going to the NACCC. At this point in time, if you don't have your plane tickets to PDX, most likely you're not going. No disrepect toward the organizing committee of the NACCC is intended. Just that if you are not racing there, you might as well be racing here!

    Not sure yet what is going on in B.more or RVA.

    Also as a reminder to everyone, next Saturday is the "SCRABBLE" Alleycat is in RVA next weekend on Saturday, May 21st. It should be a BLAST!!!
    where is everyone? we are at the circle, and no one is here!

    Here are results of Mayhem weekend, condensed from the Demoncats Race Reports (available at www.demoncats.com thanks to John's hard work)

    Demon Cats Race Report No. 8
    Washington D.C./ May 28 and 29, 2005

    Mayhem Weekend 2005
    - Bega’s Baltimore Bike Jam Courier Road Race
    -The Demon Cats present “Holy Mayhem!!!” Alleycat
    -AZ’s UDCECNAWFGCC (the unofficial district of columbia east coast north american
    world fixed gear courier competition)

    Well, another Mayhem Weekend has come and gone and what a GREAT WEEKEND it was!!! Though it may have not a three city omnium, there certainly wasn’t a lack of racing. It started Saturday morning in B.more with “Bega’s Baltimore Bike Jam Courier Road Race”. That was followed in the late afternoon with the “Holy Mayhem!!!” put together by yours truly. And finally ended about an hour ago with a barbecue in Rock Creek Park, the perfect ending to AZ’s UDCECNAWFGCC (the unofficial district of columbia east coast north american world fixed gear courier competition). Let me tell you a story about all three!!!

    Part 1: “Bega’s Baltimore Bike Jam Courier Road Race”.

    Bruce Beran won with 36 six laps, followed by Bryan, who raced on a fixed gear, then Tim from B.more, Julie, myself and AZ. Bruce and Julie won bags from Timbuk2 and best of all, everyone won more cash on top of the earlier mentioned $20.00. AZ won $20.00 more for DFL, I won $23.00 for next to DFL. Julie and Bruce won like $60.00 more each!!! I mean, the six of us won more money in that race that most of the serious road racers in the peloton that day!!! That’s the beauty of racing courier-style!!!

    Part Two: The Demon Cats present “Holy Mayhem!!!” Alleycat


    Starting with DFL. And the DFL prize (the aforementioned tiny DFL t-shirt) went to (drumroll, please):
    MARIA from Copenhagen!!!

    Best Out-of-Town (and this is where I must correct my drunken mistake) went to Breeze from Philly. He received the prize of a DCBCA jersey! But in reality Best Out-of Town went to none other than a person I have grown to know and respect through racing his races in Philly (drumroll, please):
    Stewy from Philadelphia!!! He also finished Fifth Place overall!!!

    Third Place Female and top out-of town female (drumroll, please) was none other that my dear friend:
    Emily from Baltimore!!!

    Third Place Male and this is incredible in one way and not surprising in another (drumroll please):
    Bruce Beran!!!

    Second Place Female and my pride and joy, also racing her first alleycat:
    Kimberlee!!!

    Second Place Male and Top Fixed Gear Racer (and the winner of our “it’s a mad mad mad mad W.orld!!! alleycat). Drumroll, please:
    Bryn Beck from D.C.!!!

    First Place Female and another great race from someone I didn’t know before our first race and now am proud to have made her acquaintance (drumroll, please):
    JULIE E. from D.C.

    And finally, the Top Male and Grand Champion of the 2005 Mayhem- Holy Mayhem Edition (drumroll with horn section included):
    DAN GORDON!!! From Washington, D.C.!!!
    Part Three: AZ’s UDCECNAWFGCC (the unofficial district of columbia east coast north american world fixed gear courier competition)

    Grand Funk Master AZ, gave me the results which were:

    Stewy, from Philly!!! Bryn, that name just keeps popping up! Perennial DFL Spencer from DC and Meredith!!!

    So the final results for the the unofficial district of columbia east coast north american world fixed gear courier competition are:

    Backwards Circles: Ali, Bryn and Corey
    Trackstands: Bryn, Corey and Ali
    Alleycat: Corey, Mo and Bryn
    Skids: Stewy, Bryn and Spencer

    The overall winner of the 2005 unofficial district of columbia east coast north american world fixed gear courier competition:

    BRYN BECK!!!

    HUGE USED BIKE SALE :

    Reply to: thehub@thehubbikecoop.org
    Date: 2005-05-30, 7:10PM CDT


    The Hub Bike Co-op is having a Used Bike Extravaganza. Have some spare bikes?? Bring them to sell, and receive the full price of the sold bike in store credit. Need a bike? Come and check out the selection on Saturday June 18th (10-6pm) and Sunday June 19th (noon-6pm). We'll have both low priced bikes and higher end kinds o' stuff, so stop by to check it out. All bikes for sale must be brought in and priced by the seller (we will help you) on Friday June 17th by 8pm. They must be in RIDEABLE condition. We'll have mechanics around to help out and do any repairs to get the bikes out the door that weekend. If a bike does not sell, the seller can opt to donate their bike to a local community organization. We will take care of all the donation details (do any necessary repairs and drop them off). See our website for details, www.thehubbikecoop.org, or call us at 612-729-0437.

    We are located just south of the intersection of Minnehaha and Lake Street in South Minneapolis. The address is 3026 Minnehaha Avenue. The Hub is a worker-owned, cooperatively run full service shop. We promote bicycles as an alternative to vehicle transport, and hope to provide an array of good bikes at all price ranges so that everyone can get out and ride!!


    this is in or around 3026 Minnehaha Ave S

    Just saw that on the Minneapolis Craigslist...

    From the SurlyBlog :

    If you're in the Minneapolis area, put this on your calendar:

    Dead Brewery Tour 2005

    Saturday, June 11th. Slow 20-ish mile group swerve through Mpls/St.Paul past the old breweries that once pumped out alot of beer and made Minnesota a pre-prohibition brewing powerhouse. Cruisers/hoopties/one-speeds/whatever are encouraged. Racers and heart rate monitors need not apply.

    Show up at Molly Quinn's public house on Lake St. and 33rd Ave South Mpls at 11am for pre-noon beers and breakfast. The ride is leaving at 12 noon for St.Paul and will end late afternoon at the undead Town Hall brewpub in Mpls for beer and food.

    Of course, pit stops will be frequent and random. Wear your drinking shoes. For more information, don't e-mail us, just show up and ride. Seize you there.
    I have the feeling that there are going to be a lot of drunken bike wrecks this weekend...

    I didn't see this posted yet:

    Scrabble Scramble Alleycat (as part of Bike Fest, happening here all through June)

    A quick ride through the streets of Pittsburgh. Riders should be knowledgeable and experienced in riding in the city. All proceeds from this ride will benifit a local messenger who recently was seriously hit by a car. Prizes, for many types of winners, generously donated from local businesses will be awarded as well. Stay tuned to the website for details. (from www.bike-pgh.org)
