Winter Solstice Alleycat

The December solstice, or winter solstice will occur on December 21, 2010 in the northern hemisphere. This year a full moon will also coincide with the solstice making it not only the shortest day of 2010 in terms of sunlight, but it will also mean a well-lighted evening.  You know what that means?  Damn straight - - perfect bicycling conditions.

Bicycling fools are invited to participate in what may very well be the first winter alleycat race held in Bozeman. It will be a short (ish?) race focusing on expressing t3h loves for winter riding, the camaraderie of fellow, hardcore cyclists, and a general gettin-er-done-ness sorta atmosphere.

Date: Tuesday, December 21st, 2010
Time: 6:30pm (race to start 'round 7:00)
Start: Bozeman Bike Kitchen (425 E Aspen aka just East of the Meat Shoppe)
What: An alleycat is a scavenger hunt-style bicycle race.  Bring lights, a messenger bag and an open mind.  If you're afraid, come anyway - we'll find someone to ride with you.  If you like bikes and ride 'em in winter, it's guaranteed you'll get along with anyone who attends this wildly stupid event.

Do I really have to bring a messenger bag? Or will by Xtracycle be sufficient? I could also bring a messenger bag for anything we have to carry, but it might be redundant redundant.
