How does it work? Teams? Random gangs?

Random gangs is about right.

Jami and I are in.

Are bike lights sufficient or should we bring our trail lights as well?

It's my understanding that this one will be much shorter than the last one they held. With a ~4pm start time I do not expect it to last more than a few hours. I would also expect it to be 99% on road.

So, I'm thinking just a regular LED blinky/LED headlight combo is totally adequate.

Thanks, Andy.

So we meet at 3, but it doesn't start until approx. 4?

Meet time is at 3. But since this will involve a bunch of tight pants, mouth breathing hipsters, It'll probably take a bit to herd up the cats for briefing and departure.

4pm is my estimate.

Tomorrow is the big day! If the RSVPs are any indication we will be hosting Fort Worth’s biggest alleycat ever– and that means we’ll end up donating a huge amount of food to the Tarrant Area Food Bank!

Here are some answers to our most frequently asked questions about the event:

When does it start? We’ll start the festivities at 3 p.m. at the shop.

What should I bring? Your bike, and a bag/backpack/pannier/trailer/basket/whatever to carry groceries in. It should be big enough for about 10 moderately sized food items. A helmet and a lock would be good ideas, too.

What are the stops going to be? You’ll find out tomorrow.

How many stops will there be? 5

How far will we have to ride? That depends on the route you choose and the order you complete the stops… but we’re estimating between 23 and 27 miles.

What does the winner get? Again, you’ll find out tomorrow… but let us just say it’s an unusual trophy. In fact it will probably blow your mind.

Is there an entry fee? No. But you will need some money to buy items at each stop.

How much money should I bring? There will be some variation, but you can expect to spend between $10 and $15.

Is there an afterparty? Yes, we’ll make the 2-block trek to the T&P Tavern for snacks and drinks afterward.

That’s it… we’ll see you all tomorrow!
