not usually,
well, i mean come on, yes there will probably be some people drinking there,
but n0 organizer would ever put a racer in a situation where they absolutely HAd to drink
and even on checkpoints that do involve a alcohol,
they would let you substitute something else - water, gatorade, milk, liquid plumber..
you know, whatever got you going

but if you ask me,,

sparks makes you go faster

Dailey- Your race is the same weekend as the Boston Schlitz and Giggles Ride. It was posted on the mess list a while back (nov 6). So what's up, you did'nt check your calendar or what..

sxe fbm rider, a lot of alleycats do involve drinking in some way, but there are always other options. even the six pack race could have been done without drinking. I'd better see you there.

first off. I am not doing the race. I am just posting it for my roomie. secondly. the date is actually part of the movie. I think that is the day in the movie that they plaque hits. so yeah. either way you can go to boston or philly. you will have a good time at either place.

I am not sure if there is a drinking stop. I assume not but like I said earlier I am just posting this race.

Boston and Philly are far enough apart that not TOO many people should be left worrying about which race to go to.

Boston for me. Sorry pirates.
