Seattle ladies! It’s time to get competitive! The women behind the monthly Menstrual Monday rides have planned an all-girl alley cat for June 11th, starting at 2 PM. Here are the details:
“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-competative riders (DUDE over a $1,000 worth of prizes). Plus we will have a rockin after party to celebrate the girls. What could be better?”
So, to be clear, prizes for being super fast but ALSO prizes for fun and creativity. I can’t think of anything better. Sadly, I’ll be in NYC so I’ll miss the fun but all Emerald City ladies should def be out there!
You can RSVP on the Facebook page and, at the very least, check back there to get more info.

Conversation overheard between two NYC messengers this week:
“Hey dude, are you and your lady going to the Philly Bike Formal? And what the heck is this important ‘corsage’ thing I keep hearing about?”
“A corsage is basically an expensive bracelet made of flowers.”
“Wow, really? I thought it was some sort of wacky outdated bike part I’d never heard of before.”
Fancy flowers aside, the 7th annual PBMA Winter Bike Formal is coming up this weekend in Philadelphia and it promises to be a ton of fun! It starts Saturday, February 19th at 7PM with a group ride (during which everyone should be adorned in their best formal wear) and ends in a giant party at the M-Room from 9pm-2am. According to the invite, you can expect “raffle prizes, drink specials, guest bartenders, midnight champagne toast, [prom] King and Queen, best dressed, and a special photo booth provided by DemonCats.com.”
If you’ll be around Philly this weekend but can’t make it to the formal on Saturday (or if you just want to burn off some calories before attempting to squeeze into your old prom dress), there will also be a pre-formal alley cat and goldsprints on Friday night.
Now go dust off those sparkly shoes and please be careful not to get any chiffon stuck in your chain!

Halloween calls for an Alley Cat, of course! This year, Nick and I put together a trail of clues leading to candy in Honolulu’s haunted spots. People dressed up all crazy, making the evening much more entertaining!
My cohost, Super Nick:
Morten Salt girl, Zoolander hand model, and Seth and Sau as each other.
Misosoup Clockwork Orange:
The biking viking!
Kickstand owners Cyrus and Nicky went all out as muppets!
Basically awesome costumes!
Unfortunately the clue trail wasn’t as easy to follow as we expected, with candy and clues disappearing and a crazy party downtown blocking the way to a clue.. but all in all, fun was had!
Other updates.. A female cycle club, the Hub Honeys, was started to promote ladies learning mechanics and crafts of bikes! A small group got together on Friday to sort out fundamentals and learn how to fix flats. We’ll be meeting every 2nd friday around 6:30 at Cycle Manoa on the UH campus to have a small mechanics lesson or an arts and craft project, followed by a ride. I’m really excited about this.. it seems like it will be really strong and empowering! I’ll be sure to get photos next time!

Spokeland is an “an education-based bicycle cooperative aimed at making bikes accessible to EVERYONE.” They are having their first alleycat fundraiser meeting at 1pm at the Bellvue Bandstand by Lake Merritt and Fairyland. It’s $5 to enter, and there is an afterparty too! Should be really fun. I’m gonna be doing a “Bling yer Bike” workshop at the Bring Your Own Queer festival in SF that day, so I’m gonna miss it but Jabari, Jose and maybe Kashif from The Bikery have promised me they will represent.
Have fun if ya can make it!

Our good friends Johnny and Nick hosted a halfway to St.Paddy’s day Alleycat! There were small prizes for the winners, but all participants were entered into the raffle to win a Chrome coveted jersey designed by MASH rider Garret Chow. This race was part of a series of 3 to be eligible for the jersey.
The awesome hosts:
Riding out, Danny checking the manifest looking comical:
The only other lady participant besides me, Stacy (but was enough for a girls division!)
The manifest consisted of visiting Irish bars in Honolulu and Waikiki to perform tasks to get signatures and gold coins, equaling points. Tasks included dancing a jig, thinking up a bike related limerick, and finding a lovely lady dressed as a leprechaun and delivering a strand of her hair to another checkpoint.
Tiebreaker race with Hoku in the lead:
Second place Adam with his knog sponsored prizes
Super fun race and I’m looking forward to the next ones coming up!! Hopefully more ladies will be riding those!
