Be prepared for anything
Gears will be met with sneers
Cycling circles nationwide are organizing to stand behind San Francisco’s Kachusha “Chuey” Munkanta, who is in a heap of legal hassle and medical bills after being brutalized by the S.F. police and getting felony charges. (I won’t rehash the story since it’s been written up by others with a more personal connection to him)
Now I don’t know the man personally, but his reputation and work are both sterling. Earlier this year he did a run of caps for Bike Jerks and has done All-City’s in the past. In fact all three of my favorite cycling caps were made by him.
If I was on a turn like this I sure hope the community would get behind me, so we’re turning tomorrow’s Track or Treat race into a benefit. All proceeds will be donated to Chuey, and we’ll have a donation jar at the race as well. Show up, race, donate, and party your face off.
To get you even more juiced, here are the prize wheels built by the Mark$ter.
One set will be going to either the men’s or women’s race winner, depending on who wins the Rock, Paper, Scissor Clash of Champions. And the other set will go to the winner of the costume constest. Thanks to Velocity and All-City for the materials to make this happen.
See you tomorrow!
course is only 13.5 miles long. it’s going to be a mad sprint.
