I’m putting together a tentative schedule for pghalleycat.com. Why so early? ‘Cause I want a schedule together so when I write to people begging for prizes they’re like “oh, he’s not just trying to get 100 free copies of Momentum magazine for personal use.” Whatever prizes we end up with are shared between events. So you get prizes for your race, too.

24 Minutes of Creek Trail is delayed. It’s Dirt Rag’s women’s day at Ray’s (I think that sentence might have too many apostrophes). So women: go ride Ray’s. Guys: go ride Ray’s after 4pm.
Edit: just saw this at Urban Velo: Trek Warehouse sale. So women: go ride Ray’s. Guy’s: go get some deals at Trek then go ride Ray’s after 4pm.
