    SF - Grease Monkey Mayhem - Updates and Requests

    Grease Monkey Mayhem is only a month away and things are looking great!

    So far we have confirmed support from IRO, Kryptonite, Park Tool, Soma and Timbuk2!! Which means lots of fun prizes. Not to mention the first place cash pot

    Also, we are having lots of shirts made which we will be selling that day for $10-$15. If you want to reserve a shirt to make sure you get one (and commit to pay for it) please email me at sfalleycat at mac dot com. Let me know soon if you want something besides a men's medium or large.

    And for anyone who wants to participate but doesn't want to race, we could use some more checkpoint workers. Anyone interested in lounging around in the city with some free beer?

    Grease Monkey Mayhem ~ July 23rd, 2005 ~ San Francisco, CA

    I'm excited I get to race this time, since I broke my toe just before Judah's and couldn't skid. It'll be my first alleycat in a while...

    Yes we will have flyers this weekend. We were thinking of doing an early evening out in the mission on saturday and could bring some with us if anyone is interested in a bike and beer night. Speaking of outings - anyone know where in SF we could watch the day's tour de france broadcast?

    I will PM all those interested in working checkpoints.

    No drinking will be required in this alleycat - we can't exclude those underage riders

    Shirts are going to the printers tonight - so the sponsors are being finalized!

    There are some "amatuers" who can kick ass on a bike without ever having delivered a single package...wow...imagine that!


    I didnt realize i needed "credentials" to organize a race with and for friends.


    Sometimes the worst part about riding a fixed gear is being labled as a messenger.

    If the messenger label is what you need to define yourself then by all means stay home. We are just out to have a little fun...

    Your just out to have a little fun, but did you ever think that your fun is a little derivative? I noticed that you went to the extent not to call it an "alleycat", but to exclude people with geared bikes? C'moooon!! It's sickening really:

    "We aren't messengers, but we ride track bikes"
    "We aren't messengers, but all have REAL messenger bags"
    "We aren't messengers, but we race alleycats"

    If you want to live the lifestyle, and look the part, then get yo ass downtown and do it. Rain shine, wind, whatever. Christmas Eve, whatever.

    ooh, got me there. But that's the point, innit? Y'all just remind me of those kids you see on Jerry Springer who are all like "yo, Jerry, I may have grown up in the burbs, but the ghetto is in me, too."
