While I figure out why I can’t connect my camera to my laptop to get this weekends Race/ event photos up, I thought I would remind you of another race coming up in SF. 6th Annual Supermarket Street Sweep!!! Always a good time and for a good cause. There will be a few of us coming up to SF from LA on the weekend of Dec. 3rd. It’s become an annual tradition for us, and is really fun filled weekend.
Proud sponsors of a couple of our races, Archive Bags, are getting ready to drop a new line of Messenger Bags. If they’re anything like the other fine products Archive makes, you know they’re gonna be great. Well design and very good-looking. Form and function, my two favorites.
Acrchive already dropped this rolltop backpack that I have had my eye own. Always Great stuff from the homies up north.
I am so excited for the SF Bike Expo, it’s only two weeks away! Our friends at the Volcano Club got us involved as Media for the Expo and as sponsors for the Uproar FG Comp, thats going down that weekend. Think of this as a heads up post, go checkout all the links included here, watch the teaser edit of the Expo and we’ll see you in SF!!! TOLA!
Los Angeles Halloween Alleycat! Hooray!!! Hosted by our boy Robert. It’s his first time throwing a race and he has been working hard on this one. Going around asking all of us with event throwing experience for advice, soaking in what we had to say and I think it’s gonna be a good one. Super fun and maybe a little hard, just something to get everyone back in the mode of fun street races. Don’t always have to be so serious. Plus, it ends at the O20 Halloween Block party! Vendors, games, candy, beer and good old halloween fun. Sunday is gonna be the jam, so come out and race or support! See you there!
Details on the race:
Where: Orange 20
4351 Melrose ave, LA 90029
When: October 30, 2011

Our friends at Forazter laced a few of us from Chubby Boob with their new fall line of T-shirts. Forazter is out of Riverside, CA (Chubby Boob Homeland), so anytime there is an event involving either one of the companies, both squads show up to show support. Safety in Numbers. Ha! Really though, it’s nice to have support from fellow companies, both trying to make it the best way we can. Thanks to Forazter for the shirts, I’ll rock them with pride.
Check out their whole line here and go like their FB Page.
Our Homegirl, Christy O. from the Bay sent this over. An all Lady/ Trans Alleycat, tomorrow! There hasn’t been one of these in LA for a minute (needs to happen). If you’re in SF tomorrow, go race or show up and support!
