“This year Halloween fell on a weekend, me and Geto Boys went Trick-or-Treat’n”
It seems as though people that ride bikes have a penchant for wearing costumes while riding. Unless you live in Portland, then you take your clothes off.
Here in Seattle, we have the Messquerade. Messman’s first Messquerade took place in 1999. That’s 10 years ago. It hasn’t happened every year, but it has grown, and is now one of Seattle’s biggest, and drunkenest bike events of the year.
A rain or shine event, so be prepared. If you are in town, you should really get a team together, and come out. Registration and adult beverages (bring a water bottle) at 20/20 Cycles in the Central District from 6-8pm.
It costs $20 to race per person, or $30 if you want one of the coveted “Messquerade hoodies” Your entrance fee gets you beverages all night, as well as entrance into the afterparty. Don’t be an asshat. Wear a costume. And if you come as A) an asshat, or B) Bushwick Bill- I will give you one of the also coveted GOMEANSGO “High Performance” 16oz coozies.
