Now that the ass bruise from my close encounter of the vehicular kind has subsided into a hazy interpretation of Picasso's Guernica, it's time to move on to other things. Mostly riding bikes and tipping back warm beverages.
Yes, it's that time of year when the single-speeders of the greater Minneapolis area migrate out onto a local lake and do stupid things for pride and the entertainment of lookers on. You guessed it - it's time for the Snowball's Chance in Hell Formula Ice Race and Snowy Dash for Cold Hard Cash.
This time-honored tradition was started some 9 (or 8, or 10) years ago by local luminary Kid Riemer. Since then it's stagnated significantly under the organizing juggernaut that is BrauSovCor. Still, it will be fun to drink beer and knock each other over.
Don't forget the ICY FIGURE EIGHT OF TERROR on which we run the miss-and-out, or the frightfully long Dash for the Cash - that's $20.06 up for grabs this year y'all!
Either way, get on your bike and get to Brownie Lake, Saturday Feb 11 at high noon. Idiocy will ensue. Bring any bike, dress warm, don't hate.
