What’s an Allycat you say…well…
An allycat is an informal bike race in which bicyclists receive a manifest, a list of places to go and do “challenges” to get their stamp. At the end of the race there is a fun party to hang out with other cyclists and with sponsors racers can win prizes!
Traditionally, these are often male-dominated so women in other cities have been creating WTF focused allycats which encourage more women to explore their cities by bicycle. Madtown Maidens and Babes in Bikeland are two nearby.
The challenges are easy- such as eating a radish, throwing a dart on a dartboard, playing a drumset. Think RW24 bonus checkpoint here people.
We’re focusing on historical Milwaukee and the challenges will focus on history of Milwaukee. Fun trivia and challenges for all! There will be a A route (more challenges) and a B route (less challenges)
