    Check with the organizers at their facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/2012-B...58208634206153

    Well, Doohickie, that page is NOT the official event organizer page. I've commented on that page in the past and they deny involvement in the race.

    Well, mrhiman, that's the best a Google search could do.

    Well, doing a search on the website itself, it shows to be by PedalPower, a charity which recycles old bikes, with the contact of Jason Toombs, one of the directors of PedalPower. PedalPower has a website, but the website doesn't show the Pickle Rally, so I'm not sure of the actual connection between the two.

    Not too surprising. Putting a ride on involves getting people out to ride it, and when people WANT to go ride it, and can't find any information on it, that's kind of advertising in reverse. I did send them an email, by the way, and never heard back.
