    this one's for SF - looks like it's gonna be awesome!

    First Rule BMX and Cyclecide Bike Rodeo Present:
    HELL ON WHEELS
    Sunday Oct. 30, 2005

    @ Bike Kitchen, 19th St. & Florida in the Mission, SF
    # 10am ramps open
    # DJs & bands start at noon
    # zombie ride at dark
    $5 in zombie costume, $8 no costume, $10 to compete
    Kids under 12 free (but $10 to compete)

    ...hen, if that's not enough, when the sun goes down and the makeup artists have zombie-fied everyone, it's time for a ZOMBIE RIDE around the desolate back-streets of shady San Francisco -- the nether regions of the fair city, where killers kill, power plants pollute, tweakers eat brains, and the ghost of pirates past curse entire neighborhoods with violence, destruction, and new biotech buildings. (It'll be just like the Thriller video, but with bicycles...) The ZOMBIE RIDE ends up at an undisclosed location near the City's sewage treatment plant, where Mark Perez and crew will be offering $3 admission to bike-zombies on the final night of his own Halloween show with the infamous Life-Sized Game of Mousetrap.

    Here's the official information for New Brunswick (aka the Hubcity) NJ's "Queen of the Streets" alleycat.
    When: Friday November 4th. Registration: 3.30. Race: 4.00
    Where: New Brunswick NJ. College Ave Campus (CAC) of Rutgers University. The top of the CAC parking deck.
    http://gobble.rutgers.edu/newpats/cacmap.htm
    On this map, the parking deck is near the Northwest corner of campus, behind Brower Commons and adjacent to Financial Aid.
    Cost: $5. All overage after prizes and food will go to the Douglas Women's Center.
    All questions can be directed to: llavoicetobeheardll@yahoo.com
    Directions: Parking deck is 10 mins off Exit 9 of the NJ Turnpike. Also there is a very frequent NJ Transit train (its the Northeast Corridor line) where the parking deck is a 5 minute ride. The ride is a relaxing 55 min ride/nap.

    Lastly, this race is meant to promote female cycling in/around New Brunswick. However, everyone is allowed to race.

    Friday lunchbreak series NYC. 12:45 in Bryant Park by the Fountain. We know you're stuck in your office all day and that new BF posts just don't happen frequently enough to fill the gaps between when you have to pretend to do work to keep your boss happy. So on your lunch hour, do a short ride/ 3-4 checkpoint alleycat. It'll make your day.

    For those of us on the east coast not going to this there is this going on. Should prove to be a much better time than some of you might have had at the R1 Alleycat in Providence.

    This race already happened so this point is probably moot. But traffic in New Brunswick on Friday afternoons is epic. Total standstill. I would honestly compare to NYC rush hour, just without the scale of coverage. Saturday afternoons on the other hand... very, very quiet.

    I hope some of you made it (I didn't)... if not this one, then hopefully future ones

    NJ turkey trot. here is some info from the race organizer:

    The big "TS" is the New Brunswick Train station, not a checkpoint, but might be helpful to know.

    The "S" is the start of the race, the "Grease Trucks"
    1 is the pedestrian bridge by the loree building on george street
    2 is the fountain at livingston and george street
    3 is the gazebo in buccluech park
    4 is under route 18 in johnson park
    5 is the intersection of river road and route 27
    The finish of the race will be disclosed to all racers during the race... sorry. If anyone has anymore questions feel free to give my cell phone a shout. This is a link to an interactive map of rutgers also, in case anyone wants to do some more digging. http://maps.rutgers.edu/maps/default.aspx?campus=5

    I might be able to make this, depending on what happens at work this week. It doesn't look like a messenger-only race. Anyone from Boston want to join me? Zipcar looks like the way to go. Trains and buses don't work here.

    Don't work where? If you mean Boston, then well I don't know. But if you mean New Brunswick, then there are trains that go there a few times every hour (at least in the middle of a weekday). My idea for public/cheap transportation from Boston: Chinatown bus from Beantown to NYC, ride bike from downtown to Penn Station (7th ave, 33rd st), NJ Transit Northeast Corridor to Trenton (get off at New Brunswick of course). Then again, between multiple people, zipcar may be cheaper.

    I'm not the organizer, but I know that the organizer is not a messenger himself. So definitely open to non-messengers. In fact, there are no (current) messengers in NB. Should be a fun time though, I recommend you guys attend. Tell em Ellis sent you....

    Thanks for the tips. It's not practical to take a train or bus from Boston (for me, at least). It's not a question of affordability. The train is crazy slow, and the bus isn't direct.

    Hopefully I can get a couple of people to tag along.

    Will you show us the uber-fast routes so that we do well in the race as well?
    I wish I could make it out for the Simpons race, that's like, my race.

    So I'm not gonna make the New Brunswick race. I can't swing it with work this week. I would very much like to come to DC for a race--for obvious reasons--but a good friend is giving a poetry reading, and I'm not going to miss that.
