On June 11th 2011 we held our first hopefully annual Girls of Summer alleycat. 46 seattle bicycle women descended upon I-5 Colonnade to race through the seattle city streets to stops where men would make them do ridiculous feats, kill at the very best route 19 tough miles, and of course enjoy each others company.
Once they were loose on the course they had to hit various stops that played on some familier stereotypes consisting of..
- Soccer Mom Stop
- Crazy Driver Stop
- Rocker Chic Stop
- Pretty Pretty Princess stop
Manifests weren’t signed, instead nails were pained.
For a more detailed account of the race see the Girls of Summer wrap up.
Menstrual Monday is proud to announce our first ALL-Girl Alley Cat, Girls of Summer.
An adventurous romp through the seattle city streets celebrating the best thing ever, GIRLS ON BIKES. In addition to prizes to the fastest riders, we will also have prizes in fun and creative categories to encourage new or non-competitive riders (dude NOW over $2000 worth of prizes).
Register at the I-5 colonnade at 2pm and race at 3pm sharp. Bring $5 to race and you will be rewarded with prizes and beverages.
Things to bring: map of seattle, a bag, lock, pen, and of course helmet.
Rockin after party will be held at the Boxcar Alehouse. They have food, a lovely patio, and lots of good beverages. We will be there from 4:30 on with prizes announced at 6:30. Our racers will (of course) have some well-deserved drinks on us, but the owner is so excited about this afterparty that he’s offering a beer special to all the supporters as well! From 4pm until 8pm, PBR will be $2.00 for a pint and $8.00 for a pitcher.
