This past Saturday was the first leg of the Triple Crown race which is Baltimore, DC and Richmond. It started in St. Mary’s park and ended at the bell foundry with a pig roast. My plan was to go from the start to the second check point, then move to like the fifth checkpoint then maybe one more then to the finish and get some photos. Well I went to the second and from there I couldn’t get a hold of anyone to tell me where the other check points were! At this point my chainring bolts started coming loose and I figured I should head to the finish and thats what I did. I can say it was a fun race and probably averaged around 40 miles long. The checkpoints took them to each corner of the city even through some rough areas. Check the photo set HERE.

May 25th, Starts at St. Mary’s park. I’m sure more details will pop up when it gets closer to the date but this will be a good one. Old school style alley cat thrown by bike messengers which is the way they should be!
This past weekend was an alleycat race I wish I could have gone to. Sometimes you choose between staying in the city and going to your land deep in West Virginia and firing your ATV up for the first time this year. It was a much needed get away and I can’t wait to go back, but luckily for us that Brian O’Doherty was there to capture some stills. Check out the facebook link for more photos HERE. Let me know if that doesn’t work.

I can’t wait to see Lucas Brunelle’s latest video and the Fun Bike Shorts program looks great! See you there, whether at the Bridge Spot or in the theater. Yeah!
Sean took a bunch of photos at his race, check them out here.
Our DC Buddy Sean hit us up about this Cross inspired alley cat throughout our nation’s capital. There are good sponsors and Sean keeps posting up new prize shots on his flickr. We’re gonna try and make it out to this to hang at a checkpoint/maybe ride a leg or two, there are also baltimore heads signed up on the facebook page so do your best to make it out there.
HAHA Whatever, if it happens to rain during the race OH WELL its just a little rain. There are still sweet prizes to win and it will be nice and dry in Rocket to Venus at the after party(also the last stop on the race[HINT!]). That’s only more motivation to hurry up and get there.
That’s right. May 1st 2011 We will be hosting another Alley Cat throughout the streets of lovely Baltimore. More details will be posted as they happen but in the mean time you can expect a high energy, high fun adventure on your bike. Tell your friends and if they have facebook invite them to the event page. Once again if you’d like to help out in anyway email us.

For the past four years our friend Jim has been putting on an annual informal cyclocross stage race in the various parks of Charm City. It’s always been a low key invite only sort of deal and this year we were fortunate enough to be invited. Keith, Jeremiah and I woke up early and met at Hold Fast HQ and then drove down to the meet up spot by Patterson Park. There we met up with Colin and Erin and got a bite to eat and some coffee as the racers trickled in. When just about everyone arrived, we saddled up, braved the wind, and headed to the first stage…
