Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Twin Cities Alley Cat 3/27

5 bucks gets you in.
Dunn Brothers in Loring Park I believe is the start. Don't have the flyer right in front of me.

Yeah I saw a big stack of flyers at The Hub right by the cash register yesterday when I was buying some new chains. Although I will have to work that day...

Don't forget though, the Riverview cheap theater is playing Pulp Fiction at Midnight fri 26 and sat 27...
Three blocks from my house, how could I not go...

The course is set.....about 20 miles around Minneapolis and a little turn into the smelly pits of St. Paul.
End spot is Grumpy's downtown, 5pm for those too soft to ride 20 miles. Post race antics may include a
trackstand off, random aimless ride to nowhere or somewhere and/or a fire by a river....
