bike swap 20

bikeabq bike swap is back…



drink, crank, drunk…not crink, crank, crunk. unless…


Drink Crank Drunk ,round 1, is a social bicycle race.
Date: Feb 23rd (if foul weather, we will reschedule two weeks later on march 9th ) Time: gather at 6:45, teammates drawn at 7:15 race 7:30 Start!Start/ finish: Ilvicino Canteen (2381 Aztec Rd. NE)
Description: This is a 26.1 mile urban race to three different micro-breweries (revealed at start). Riders names will go into a hat and pairs of riders for duo teams will be drawn. Co-ed teams. Non-committal bicycle styles –all are welcome.
Both teammates must ride to all three stops and enjoy a beer of your choice and finish together.
There will be time bonus if you are on a mountain bike with knobby tires, a female rider, drink a 22 oz beer.
Your team can choose any route and any order of stops.
Your team (each member) will need to obtain a “stamp” at each stop on your passport.
Fee: there are no entry fees or prizes really for that matter.
Hints: Bring and present your ID, bring small bills to pay in cash at each stop for faster transactions and bring a bike lock.
In the event we have an odd number of riders, the last name in the hat can choose to ride along with any duo team and help efforts, BUT if that team drops you along the route they don’t have to wait up for you.. Teams cannot swap riders.
I’m thinking about offering a “cruiser” category for those that want to attend but think 26 miles is kind of far …maybe one stop of your choice…will see who shows up and request this.
Disclaimer: Riding a bicycle in an urban environment while under the influence of alcohol is dangerous. If you disagree with this statement and refuse to take responsibility for your own actions, please do not attend. Thank you! I do hope to see each of you there!
