It was a rain soaked start to the event which unfortunately kept the fair weather folks indoors, and lead to a smaller than normal turnout. The numbers were down, but the quality was way up as a who's who of riders from all over the globe gave their best to the streets of MPLS over the 30 mile course.
Just wanted to pop our heads up to tell you about a little something that we've been working on over here at All-City. You see, inspired by the amazing time we had at Bike Lore, we wanted to try our own hand at throwing a totally legit sanctioned cross race here in MPLS where the focus is as much on the spectators and their good time as it is on the racers. Something that the whole family would enjoy, and that would bring a bit of that festival / community vibe to our cross scene.
To further our goals of helping to make the cycle community as inclusive and welcoming as possible, for our sponsorship this year, we have agreed to pay the entry fee for all women / trans / femme riders.
