Cirque du SoGay VIII

  • Full Cycle Bike Shop 3515 Chicago Avenue Minneapolis, MN, 55407 United States (map)

Mark your calendars with a giant unicorn riding a bicycle over a rainbow, for it is almost time for Cirque du SoGay VIII!

CdSG is a bicycle scavenger hunt of queer-friendly people and places. Riders start and end at the same point, and there are queer destinations in between. How you execute your route is up to you! Do all the stops or just the ones you want. No need to be the fastest (unless you want to be!) Prize categories will be decided by the wonderful community organizations supporting the ride this year. Following the ride is an awards ceremony with entertainment and aforementioned prizes of all types.

I think my friend Aaron described it to someone pretty well last night - "girl, this is not your typical race, it's a *celebration*. can you put a condom on a dildo? You win a prize. Throw some beanbags into a butt, win a prize. Is your outfit cute? Win a prize."

Of course he was speaking generally but, yes, there are lots of prizes for lots of things. 
As always there will be a harder & faster route, as well as a novice route. Come race, or come to learn new things and make new friends.
