    A couple of my best buds and co-conspirators back in Vermont are putting on the 4th (nearly) annual Monster Mash race. Being semi-homesick and nostalgic towards Burlington, my home of seven years, seeing the invite to the race this morning has already made my day. Even though I won’t be able to make it as I’m still in Shanghai, I’ll definitely be there in spirit and hope to follow along via Snapchat/Instagram. Anyway, enough about how I miss these guys and good ‘ole VT…here are the vitals:

    All hallows gather on the eve of the eve. After a year on the lam MONSTER MASH is back! And back with a VENGEANCE. 

    Meet: 30 Bright St. in the shadows of the loading docks
    Registration: 6pm – 7pm
    Race: 7:15pm
    Finish and after party @ Artsriot
    $5 or $20
    (Wear a costume)

    RSVP on Facebook

    If you’ve ridden this race in the past you may be familiar with the AlleyCat format we have adhered to. This year we promise you some of the same with a few twists lurking in the shadows. Monster Mash IV will be more about the trick and the treat. Don’t make any assumptions; you won’t know what’s coming around the corner.

    Registration will begin at 6pm with a mass start just after 7pm. Bring $5 to race or $13 if you want a t-shirt and poster. We’re not gonna turn anyone away, but the entry fee will help cover costs of the race, treats and prizes for all. Oh, and there will be an after party at Artsriot with prizes awarded for all your favorite categories. 

    Lets be real, wear an awesome costume. It’s going to be dark and scary, so bring a light, front and rear if you got ’em. A lock is not necessary during the race unless you’re worried about leaving your bike un attended for a short period of time, however you may want to have one at the end of the race. We will have a car at the start, and can shuttle your lock and other nicknacks to the end for you.
