Another Detroit Alleycat this Sunday

It’s called ALLEYCAT TACYELLA and the tag-line is “Just ‘cuz it’s cold doesn’t mean you can’t break the ice!”

It begins this Sunday, December 21 at 7:00pm from Hart Plaza in Downtown Detroit.

This event is being organized by the cool kids at the Hub of Detroit.  They’re also donating prizes along with Back Alley Bikes and the Cass Cafe.

“Traffic Race” Alley Cat is this Saturday

Detroit AlleycatThere’s another Alleycat in Downtown Detroit this weekend. Here’s the scoop from their press release:

“From the team that brought you the Drug Wars race, comes the Traffic race.

This is perhaps the closest we can come to a rush hour NYC alley cat race. There will be a Tigers game, a Wings Game, and the Electronic Music Festival going on.

It’s going to be a little tough due to crazy amounts of traffic and people. You must understand that this is an unsanctioned event and YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOURSELF. This race will be EXTREMELY dangerous.

Here are the details. (more…)


Detroit Alleycat: Meow, Meow, Meow, Meow

In case you missed it, the April Detroit Alleycat was a great time as these photos show.

The theme was “drug wars”, so basically you got a brown bag at the start containing “medications” and directions. You had to ride to the different locations, deliver the medications, and get paid. You had to be at the bar by 6pm. Whoever got there first with the most money won.

The key to doing well is knowing your streets and choosing an optimal order and route between all the stops. Fortunately Skeez and I know the area pretty well. Our team made all the sales. There were around 50 teams (over 115 riders) and we finished 7th or 8th.

The after party was at TV’s on Grand River at 4th. They had $2 beers and grilled cheap food for us on their outdoor patio. The decor was very, very mod and cool.

The next alleycat, called The Gay Velocipede and the Darling Buds of May is scheduled for May 7th, 8PM at Hart Plaza.
