the 833rd annual Tour de Cowtown
Saturday May 19th 5pm
preceded by the Everything Bicycle Swapmeet and Jumble at sunrise the same day
We have an excitiing addition to this year's events.
WIN a Breezer ZigZag!
That's right, there will be a raffle drawing for a Breezer ZigZag. Donated to the Greater Kansas City Bicycle Federation by Joe Breeze and Breezer Bikes. A bicycle company dedicated to commuter bikes. Tickets are $10 each or 12 for $100. All proceeds from this raffle will go to the Greater Kansas City Bicycle Federation. The drawing will take place sometime during the Tour de Cowtown activities. Tickets must be purchased at Acme Bicycle Company.
And take home one of these
nothing heavy to carry this year
10 bucks pre-register, 12 bucks day of. First 50 folks who sign up get a t-shirt, everyone will get a spoke card along with food n grog provided by our sponsors.
everyone who participates will have the opportunity to walk away with some great swag donated by the many sponsors of this event
there will be not only an alley-kat style race with manifest, places to visit, items to pick up and bonus ?s to answer, there will also be a track stand competition, a messenger-style time trial and other events to be announced day of races. sure to be a fun event for all including things to watch even if ya dont wanna 'race'. hopefully most of you know an alleykat is not your typical race. its not near so much about going fast as being familiar with your city and your tactics for finding your way thru the manifest. its all about fun on your bicycle, not about whos the fastest. and being fast is no guarantee of winning, or of getting the best of the swag.

Bike To Work Week 07

Don't forget that the Bike to Work Week Commuter Challenge starts on Monday and runs through Friday.
You can log onto to log your miles.

While the Challenge is primarily geared towards biking, we welcome anything that replaces a car trip - walking, taking the bus, or even carpooling. And don't forget that you can also log non-work trips like running errands, going to the video store, etc.

Please plan to join us on Sunday for some hard earned rewards at Boulevard Brewing. Bridging the Gap has come up with some great prizes worth thousands of dollars, and the good folks at Boulevard and the Pitch will host us from 1-4pm.

Ride On!
