Do you like to see bike kids jump ship over their handlebars? If so, then roll down to Civic Center Park tonight at 6 p.m. to catch all kinds of fixed-gear silliness, from bike soccer (yeah, soccer) to footdown (last man riding wins) to other games that result in scraped knees and elbows.
It's also the pre-registration and warm-up for Rollin' to Da Dome II, a bike-messenger-organized alleycat open to all cyclists. The race itself starts at 2 p.m. tomorrow, with cash prizes for the fastest racers. "I would like to see this as the zenith of Denver's alleycat scene," says organizer/cycle courier Ross Miller. "Free of corporate sponsorship and political connotations just pure strength, speed and agility. Plus, it's fucking fun."
Registration is $15 and includes a shirt. After 9 p.m., you can register at Carioca Cafe, aka Bar Bar, at 2060 Champa Street (plus catch performances by Dugout Canoe and Republic of Thoronia). Detailed race info is at www.eleventooth.com.
Fri., June 29, 6-10 p.m.
