Wait, what? There's a race?

Gainesville's working on it. No promises, but we might have a car, and maybe a driver. Holy ****, are you guys really giving away bike frames?

we're crazy around here. my bike frame is from one of the guys offering the prize; something else to note, we'll have accomodations set up for any out of towners, no need to bike back to a hotel all drunked out. F*** the Fest Gainesville, come on up here!

yeah. i know. it rules.
and we're giving away bags and frames as some of the prizes.
and we've got trophies.
come early for the goth critical mass beforehand.
big party afterwards.
let us know soon so we can find floor/couch/bed space for you.

You at Wayne or UofD (I'm betting Wayne, but I go to UofD)? Back Alley Bikes rocks. Detroit is sweet though, don't knock it.

Wayne, yeah. Back Alley is the shiz, that room of bikes beckons me, but only being open 2 nights a week is kinda crampy.

PM sent so as to avoid clutter and non-tally-ness.

Heh, my mom went to Wayne State and my dad UofD. Kooooky.



Might end up in NYC for that weekend, but if not I'll make the trek to Tally. There's a huge-ass party (non-bike related) down in Tampa on the 28th, if anyone is interested.

I'm going to try and get there. Have to be back to do the Guavaween parade nonsense on Saturday, but the race'll be worth it or so I hear. Hotels nearby?

I'm going up there on Thursday and leaving Saturday. Do you want a hotel, or would you mind staying at someone's house? I can find something for you.
