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 and having a good time. This particular event will be focused on endurance or rather how many laps can be put down and bonuses accumulated in 2 hours. This event uses a duo format so you only really have to ride for about an hour. The standard egg baton, costume, and underwear bonuses are in place. Let's get CREATIVE with those costumes and remember spandex does not count toward the underwear bonus! Most of you know what gelande quaffing entails but in case you have been living under a rock…….click on the vids to the right. Don't be intimidated by the athleticism displayed in some of the vids. We are just as health conscious as the next dude. We will go with 6 oz pours of delicious golden heaven. Sunday morning will bring bloody mary’s with breakfast to shake off that hangover from the delicious brews we are getting for dinner!

A few things to make sure you bring with you:
