Hurrah! Well, it's a partner's race, so if you don't have one to begin with, you'll be able to find one at registration. Everything's better with two! I'm glad you're coming!

Btw, there will be fire burlesque during the skids comp. Like a backdrop of live, firey, burlesque proportions. Who's going to miss out on that??

I'm probably gonna be there. There will be probably about 5 or 6 of us from Macon coming up. Hopefully my new wheels will be done by then.

road bikes are rad!

you can get a partner at the race--just pre-register now to get free entry to the dance party on Friday at Lenny's. Like I said, e-mail me about a place to stay (jes@sopobikes.org).

That goes for you all--PRE REGISTRATION ENDS FEB 2. DO IT NOW!

The race starts at 7.

As for out-of-towners, seriously, it would help us (the race planners) A LOT if you would pre-register & let us know you need a place. We have tons of people wanting to put you all up, we just need to know if you're coming.

Hey Purplebike, I think me and my buddy will need a place to stay. We haven't decided if we're coming up on Friday or Saturday. I am also trying to get Deathhare to the event. Wow, a celebrity!!

uh. p.m. None of us will be awake at 7 am. Unless we're still out partying from the night before. Which is totally possible.

There will be a pool of partnerless people at registration if anyone doesn't have a partner. No worries.
