11 years. 11 years we’ve been doing this.

Every Summer, for one glorious bike party weekend we own these streets, we own this fucking town. The All City Championships were the first major non messenger-organized alleycat in the city of MPLS.

Save the NSC Velodrome!
GSTNSCVelodrome

Track racing is one of the most unique forms of cycling because it requires a special venue and when said venue is threatened, the sport itself takes the hit. The NSC Velodrome is the only velodrome in Minneapolis and right now, it needs our help.

If you’re in the area, there’s a fundraiser this weekend but you don’t have to live in Minneapolis to help support track cycling. Donate at the NSC Velodrome’s Go Fund Me page and help re-pave this beautiful track. If you’d like to some some truly wonderful photos of this velodrome, check out Kyle’s photos at Tracko.
