The 7th annual Velo City tour is on! It’s a series of open velodrome races (anyone can enter, and they’re wicked fun to watch). If you work on a bike (messenger) you can win a paid trip to the cycle messenger championships (CMWC 2012) being held this year in Chicago. It’s a lot of hot guys and fewer women, but everyone is friendly and highly encouraging of any woman who wants to race, even if it’s for the first time. Expect a rowdy picnic type party in the stands… Check out CycleHawk’s Tumblr here.
Williamsburg bike shop Affinity is hosting a group ride out to the velodrome before the races, then hosting an alleycat for all the street racers who prefer to play in traffic.
