**Saturday**SLAP DASH ALLEYCATSo you're framebuilders. This alleycat is a s loppy gumbo of framebuildingand street racing...and you're welcome to take either one as seriously ornot-seriously as you want. Be prepared to read a map, use a hacksaw, crossbridges, and make the crappiest welds of your life . Checkpoints will be inbasements and warehouses where local builders, incl uding some freakbikebuilders, do their thing. Prizes for fastest and most c reative. For thoseof you familiar with bikeportland.org, the start/finish l ocation is wherethe bikeportland.org benefit party is going on. Plan B, 130 5 SE 8th St (not too far from the Convention Center)register at 7pm, ride a t 8pm$5 to ride a few of the pix in this set (the ones after dark) were during this event http://flickr.com/photos/acmebicycle/sets/72157603898478109/ it was an awesome time the route covered much of the city and got to meet some great local cyclers along with interesting bikegeek basements n warehouses along the way thought i might roll by afterwards but we didnt finish until after 10p and didnt roll towards home till after 2a sorry it was a tough choice but this sorta race is right up my alley and besides my pals n i dubbed the kc contigent tho one now lives in pdx won the dfl prize a case of fat tire ale!
