* This was originally posted on the Bici Coop website, but I thought you dear readers might enjoy it as well! The only sad part of this day was that Elisa could not join us. MISSED YOU!*

I am still taking it all in; this race was completely amazing. We had 45 total racers, a huge number compared to our usual turn out; so many men in drag, so many ladies kicking butt, so much fun! The amount of sponsors we were able to get on board made the prize give away a blast – everyone who won something was totally stoked. And the food. Oh my god the food. SUSHI! VEGAN COCONUT CAKE! Green Central Station brought an unbelievable spread.

Congratulations to all our winners! Alan was first for the guys, Elizabeth was first for the gals. Maaike won the Po Campo bag for best dressed among the ladies – check out that fancy necklace! Rishi won the Chrome bag for best dressed among the dudes. The competition for that prize was tough, but as you can see below, he really did it up right. Stuffed what needed to be stuffed and all.

    Words do not describe how sad I am to have missed this. I actually teared up looking at the photos, so proud at how far it has come and so sad I wasn’t there to share with you. I MISS ANNA!!

    In May we have a Pretty Dress ride; usually it draws around 25 or so participants. What’s surprising is if a guy rides in a skirt even when there’s no event, nobody seems to care; maybe they know it’s so much more comfortable, and that’s why the ladies stick with it. It could also be because guys’ shorts are so long, passers by can’t tell the difference. Now, the cool rain is just around the corner, so guys, if you’re gonna do it, grab the outfits and go for it while you can; then mark your calendars for July/August 2012 to check Bike Fancy & Bici Coop: maybe you can make it for next year’s race.
