Babes in Bikeland 9 – August 29, 2015
Pre-registration is closed for Babes in Bikeland – a bike race and ride for women/trans*/femme (WTF) cyclists, back for it’s ninth year. Expect a fun course through Minneapolis, stopping at parks and cool businesses along the way. You determine the best route from the start to the finish, hitting each checkpoint for a stamp. This event aims to be a fun and supportive environment for all types of WTF riders.
Bring your own map, a pen, lights, a lock, and a good attitude! Some tools and snacks are a good idea, too! Dress for the weather!
From 3-5 on Saturday is sign-in. If you have pre-registered, go to the “Pre-Register” table to pick up your manifest and t-shirt. If you are sigining up on race day, go to the “Day-Of” table to sign the waiver, and pay the $5. Some shirts will be for sale on Saturday for $10.
Race launches from DeLaSalle High School parking lot at 5pm!
Race finishes at Solcana CrossFit 1915 E 22nd St, Minneapolis, MN 55404
