I'm sponsoring a race?
So what the hell is a utility cycle company doing sponsoring a race? Well, it's a courier race.
The West Side Invite is the west coast's premier celebration of taking things places by bike and having a well earned pint or eight afterwords. Started by Portland messengers in 2001, this is the first time it will be held out of state. Seattle has been asking to host the race for years and we finally decided we could use a break, so Emerald City here we come.
I'm putting up two racks for prizes and if I have any sway with the organizers (don't think that'll be a problem) they will go not to the fastest, but to the awesomest. You know, "best use of a nipple driver", "least beer spilled while racing", those kinds of things.
Memorial day weekend, May 22-25. If you are not there I will be having more fun than you. :P
