280 miles in 3 days? Sounds like a blast to me. The Beast of the East messenger challenge is coming up on May 18th.
“Welcome to the official website for the pre-event to the 2012 NACCC. The Beast of the East will be a weekend long event celebrating the bike courier culture. Expect a wide verity of all the favorite alley cats, lots of partying, all the weirdest side events we can think of. There will be 7 races during the weekend, each race will earn participants points. The rider with the most points at the end will be crowned the Beast Of the East. And after all that is done we will hop on our bikes and take a 3 day 280 mile trip down route 1 to Richmond, VA for the 2012 NACCC.
This event is put on by current and ex messengers of Philadelphia. To ensure a great weekend we ask that you please pre-register so we know how many party hats and cake to buy for everyone. Those who pre-register will get early access to couch and floor space.”
