You're going to LOVE this event! This is the 3rd Annual Alleycat Rally being held down in Keokuk (...& it's finally not taking place on Memorial Day Weekend!).
A fun & unique family-friendly event, an Alleycat Bicycle Rally is a form of unsanctioned bicycle street racing. Created decades ago by bike messengers, races mimic all sorts of crazy things a bike messenger might encounter in a typical delivery day. Alleycats send riders racing around a city to a series of checkpoints (which conveniently, are given out just a few minutes before the race begins!).
With no set route, part of the winning strategy is deciding whether to take off right away & figure out the route as you go, or strategize first & then get to pedaling! Navigation skills, raw speed...& maybe a little luck, too!...will determine the winner.
Races Start at 9a.m.
Start/Finish Line: Main Street Keokuk, Inc. Office (511 Blondeau Street, Keokuk, IA)
