This Sunday, there’s an alleycat race that spans from Mckenna park across downtown and through both college campuses. The proceeds benefit Querencia Community Bike Shop, a worthy cause.
From the Facebook event page:

- All Proceeds from the race will be donated to QCBS.
All riders welcome
here is the race outline as it stands now:
- race starts and ends at McKenna park
- registration opens at 3:30pm and closes at 4:00pm, announcements will follow and the race will begin as close to 4:00 as possible.
- As it stands right now there will be two categories, this may change based on attendance.
- Single Race
each entry is his/her own team – no help. each rider must visit ALL check points. the route taken in between checkpoints, and the order of checkpoints will be left up to the rider. – - entry is 3$ – - prizes for 1st 2nd and 3rd
- Team Race
Form a team if you don’t want to ride as far, want to finish faster, or simply want to compete with a friend. at least one member from each team must visit all check points (checkpoints are the same as the singlerace checkpoints) teams should consist of 3 people, but entries of 2 person teams will be accepted. – - entry is 6$ per team – - Prizes for 1st and 2nd
Checkpoint Locations – check points can be visited in any order. you must show your card to attendant.
UNT Campus – Library Mall Fountain. Circular fountain
North Lakes Park – “fishing pier”
Denton Square – Courthouse front steps
TWU – Circular fountain in front of the library
The final Check In will be your return to McKenna Park. after having visited the first four.
Maps and pictures of the check point locations will be available in limited quantity before the race.
- points will be awarded to riders at each checkpoint. more points for the faster you get there. As mentioned, no particular order is required in choosing which checkpoints to go to. First one to attend all four checkpoints, and check back in at McKenna (first to finish) will be given a lot of points. It will be possible (but unlikely) for this person to not come in first overall.
