Food Not Bombs: Alley Cat Race
I rolled to the start and raced it solo, but ended up riding with the bikeshop manager/owner of Tennessee Valley Bikes. We knocked out all 4 checkpoints/ 15 miles in about 48-49 minutes. Traffic/pedestrians/downtown concert and everything. I had a blast making race moves in traffic. I came in 3rd, met a bunch of cool people and planned a bike trip to Nashville. Leaving afterwork today, riding from Knoxville to Nashville carrying a Bob trailer packed with a tent and sleeping bag, etc. I have wanted to ride this route for a while now.
