Albany, NY alleycat race: Uphill Both Ways



Race start: 9pm, Sep 15
registration/sign-up starts 8:30pm

On September 15 after Larkfest I shall present to you another Albany alleycat. There's only one theme to this one: I'm going to try to kill your ass on these bumps.

As always, we shall be ending at my favorite little corner bar with cheap eats and plentiful beer.

There will be art! Scene kids! Mom's mallcore ***** corps! Bike cops on poorly fit rebadges! Drunk hillbillies! Math! And some of the cruelest tarmac in the city of Albany. Ride any uni or bike or trike you like; as long as it's got wheels and pedals and is you-powered, it's all good. You will not be turned away for excess spandex or your lack of white belts.

Entry fee gets you a neato handmade spoke card and a shot at being the baddest ass in the Capital Region.

Pre-registration via email to soze@fork-bomb.com is encouraged for planning purposes. Dear god help me make a better guess at how many of these damn cards I gotta make.

PS - please don't get me arrested.

PPS - What are the odds that CF4L sees this before Critical Mass tomorrow?

Updates... Downtube and CK Cycles wrenches are going to represent (gotta love stirring up local rivalries), and Blue Sky may put in an appearance.

Also, CK Cycles is likely going to be kicking in some weird and wonderful prizes, so you've definitely got something to race for now. Finally, my RPI education and continued association is paying off. *rolls eyes*
