Red Hot Riot II – 2008

Last summer this kind fellow named A.J. put together an excellent alley cat event packed with sprints, skids, a manifest driven race and plenty of PBR. A good time was had by all, including those who got an close and personal taste of the pavement.

This year A.J. stepped it up a notch. Sprints and skits remained while bike polo, more PBR, choice music by Girl on Girl and live foot stompin country by Poke elevated Red Hot Riot II. I thoroughly enjoyed myself despite blowing two tubes, going through a tire and taking my fare share of spills trying to grab that frosty beverage.

I can’t wait for next year’s bash. Thanks A.J. for getting everyone together on that fine Sunday evening. Also, thanks to my sister for helping out with the pictures.

Seth and I have a race in the works with a late August / early September date in mind. In the meantime, our partners at Bikes and Rec are putting on the second annual pedal and paddle 8/8/08. It’s a great way to get out on the river without having to shuttle cars or endures the painstaking bus ride. No bikes were harmed in last years event and we’re anticipating the same good fortune this year. For more information on the event click here.
