"Double Down" is an all-ladies alley cat style race taking place on
Saturday, July 11th. Registration begins at 4:30pm at the capitol, and
the race begins at 6pm. The race has a Las Vegas/gambling theme, so
come dressed up because there will be prizes for the best costumes, as
well as several other racing categories. Fast Folks Cyclery (2513 E
6th St.) will be hosting the after party/award ceremony starting
around 8pm, complete with beer, food, and a few great surprises.
Registration for the race is $5, and admittance to the after party for
non-racers will be $5, the proceeds of which will go to support the
Austin Yellow Bike Project. Racers should bring a lock, a
bag/backpack, money, a bathing suit, and water.
