I did this race last year and it was a ton of fun! $5 to ride around and headbang or write metal haikus at stops with your pals! There were some sweet prizes last year, too.

Look at all those happy women! Ride this one for speed, or ride this one for fun, but RIDE THIS RACE! The feeling of being around 300 of the raddest ladies in the Cities is a unique and wonderful experience.

The "gayest show on earth"! Bike events are by default dominated by white, cis, straight men, and this is an opportunity for queer and trans folks to join together and ride bikes all over the city. As I learn time and time again when I'm surrounded by your beautiful faces at Grease Rag, never underestimate the power of being surrounded by your community. When the "minority" is the "majority" there's an incredibly fun energy that happens.
Even if you don't race, don't miss the awards show. Seriously. The after party is bananas.
What races are you looking forward to?
