    this is the thread where i will give you the low-down on the alleykitten for NYC on new year's eve.

    to sum, the alleykitten is open to anyone who is on these forums, all first time alleycatters, and all out-of-towners. the idea being that i think many people are intimidated into not riding in alleycats partly because they feel they don't fit in. well, in this one, NO ONE will fit in --so everyone will.

    we will meet at sony plaza, the indoor public plaza on madison between 55th and 56th street (the flyer is a little off) at noon on saturday the 31st. i've lined up some pretty big sponsors and over a million dollars in prizes, so come on down and let's have fun.

    i will post the checkpoints in this thread by friday morning. i just checked my original route, and it wound up being too long, so i am scrambling to reduce the distance.

    race day: the temperature is mild. a light breeze blows a curtain gently back and forth. the afternoon light dapples quietly across a nyc bedroom. s_9 scampers to and fro, lighting scented candles and donning his pink gum suit . . .

    in the spirit of the alley kitten

    the first THREE bf'ers to pm me (1 guy and 1 girl, or, i spose, 2 girls) will receive a tshirt with their bike forum name on it, race day.

    **qualifications--
    1)you must, I MEAN MUST race. sorry, no cp people or innocent bystanders. if you are halvsies on racing or think you might be too inebriated to show up, forget about your little custom t shirt!

    2)you must wear your tshirt during the race (yes over your winter jacket is ok) so we can all say, for example, "i never knew ch0mb0 was so dang fast, this is the third time he passed me" instead of "who is this guy on the fuji that keeps passing me!"

    3) in your pm, please include A) whether you are a guy or girl. screen names can be deceiving! and B)your shirt size!


    enjoy

    the dirty cookie

    DC, that's amazing. In the spirit of your offer, I will go a step further. First person to PM me will receive a decal of their BF name, in white or black letters and basic font type selection, and I'll even apply if for ya race day. But ... you can't be one of the people also getting a t-shirt.

    edit: you must be racing to get this one.
    Culture? Art? Making a difference? Hey, go **** yourself. We're too busy drinking, doing drugs, trying to **** random people and you want us to make money on top of all that? Really?

    Well, ****. I don't give a ****.

    OFFICAL BEER SPONSOR SECURED!

    Narragansett Beer, hailing from my lovely city of Providence has graciously donated 8 thirty racks for the ALLEYKITTEN ... now we just need to find a place to drink them all! I may bring slightly less than that, for fear of a surplus. Yikes!
