No Name Alleycat Race

  • Stone Arch Bridge Bandshell 420 Southeast Main Street Minneapolis, MN, 55414 United States (map)

The No Name is a monthly standing alleycat race. We meet up on the first Sunday of each month (with a few rare exceptions) at the bandshell near the North/East end of the Stone Arch Bridge.

The race varies, as each month the prior month’s winner organizes the race. It’s typically a manifest of unmanned stops in Minneapolis with the occasional jaunt into Saint Paul, with mileage running anywhere from 10-35 miles. The longer races are usually when the weather is nicer.

It’s a very noob-friendly race, and has served as the training ground for many of the Cities’ best street racers. It’s a great place to learn how to ride and run an alleycat. Other traditions include the winner-take-all pool (usually followed by the winner-spend-all on beer), random prizes, and no-spandex attitude.

Meet-up: 6:30 PM, Manifests: 6:45 PM, Race: 7:00 PM
