Bike Events with Kat: StuporBowl 16
January 28, 2013
Posted in: Uncategorized
Minneapolis is host to one of the country’s most well-known and largest alleycats – STUPORBOWL. This year is the 16th annual and its coming up fast. It will take place the day before that huge football game thing that happens in the beginning of February. The task at hand is to complete a bike race where each stop involves some sort of drink. Sometimes it will be a PBR at someone’s house, other times it will be a drink of your choice at a bar. The bottom line is to find the best and fastest route, drink at all the stops, finish the race, and stay coherent enough to accept your prizes if you win. Sound too intense for you? There is also a speed race option that doesn’t include drinking alcohol, but will test your endurance, routing skills, and speed. Ah yes, and it is FEBRUARY IN MINNESOTA, so the weather is completely unpredictable. Hundreds will come from all over the country to take part in StuporBowl 16. If you just want to enjoy the event without the race there are still opportunities to volunteer, or come out to the after party (21+) to witness the aftermath of an epic bike race. WARNING: Shirtless bike messenger dance party is not unlikely.
