The race check points and most common route

This past Sunday we had a very exciting day in the Peoria Bike Scene. It all started bright and early at 3:30pm in Giant Oak Park where a top secret five card poker run Alley Cat race was held. When we arrived the race promoters gave us four check points, a special edition playing card, a map and 30 minutes to figure out our route. We started the race with an old fashioned arm wrestling contest and then we took on the streets of Peoria!

It was a really exciting and close race having Steve Hinrichsen taking the high podium spot at first place and Dan Waite coming in a close second and Brad Nauman taking all the glory at third place. Keeping the top three times under 45 minutes climbing some of the most traitorous hills Peoria has to offer. With all of three of these class A athletes taking the podium we had a lovely young lady named Jasmin Garcia take the best hand with four 10’S. She by far brought the whole race to a stand still of anticipation with a victory for the female riders of Peoria. All in all it was a great and very exciting race! Can’t wait to do it again.

action to show our unhappiness with the decision to not incorporate any bikes lanes in the new construction plans for washington street we decided to make our own. A little DIY street work before they tore up the street and began construction. The turnout was minimal but effective. We hope to gain momentum from all of this and get the word out and have more people at our next gathering.
