Let me start by saying that although this is a race, it is for fun, so those of you that feel you don’t like to compete should have no excuse for not coming out to have a good time. This particular event will be focused on endurance or rather how many beers and laps can be put down in 2 hours. Are you serious?! 2 hours?! Yeah the race is 2 hours.....BUT this race features the DUO! Yes that's right! You only have to race for 1 hour then subtract the time you spend drinking during the race and you only have to ride for something like 40 mins. 30 if the suds agree with you! There will be the standard costume, beer, and underwear bonuses. We better see some sweet costumes being right after Halloween and all. Check the pics the of the killer loop!

Race Details:

Lap bonus:

- Successful completion of egg baton. Don’t crack your egg! - 0.5 lap overall

- Beers consumed between laps. This is a fatigue factor, not a “can I get bombed”. Please act responsibly. - 0.5 laps per beer - Costumes - PG13 rated - 0.5 laps per each lap worn
- Underwear - Only wearing tighty whities or grandma panties and a bra for the women - 0.5 laps per each lap completed in underwear

- Blue Ribbon - correct count of the PBR ribbons on the Blue Ribbon trail - 1 lap overall

- Vomiting - 1 lap per instance

Teams: Coed or Male
2 Hour Race with the most laps completed within 2 hours. Separate classes for male & coed teams. Tandem bikes are allowed, although switchbacks may prove quite challenging.

The course via Google Earth. Notice the sweet bonfire! That was a tough one to draw. The camping and parking area will be btween the bonfire and the timing tent. The potluck will be in the garage which is symbolized by the blue rectangle with white fill. The kids race will follow the green route. If you want a better copy of the map just shoot me an email.
