Alley Sweeper?

Any news on the Alley Sweeper this spring. I know it is early but a brother has to plan.

It's usually late March/early April. Nothing on the SFRC site.

We rode up from Albany last year, picking up riders at several locations. It was a real hoot, hope to ride the alleys again.



Here's a meet-up in Woodburn area on the way to Alley Sweeper 2012.

See you there.
Dave

It won't be announced (for good reasons) until a couple of weeks before the event.

But the alley's and unimproved roads are there for our enjoyment all year around

it's certainly a fungible term. If there's a license plate on it you're probably fine. Not like there's a tech inspection or anything. I bet there are a lot of unplated or "borrowed plate" bikes.

Most bikes on the ride follow the letter of the law.







Yep, it has a headlight


Hard to see, but that's a trip permit on the number plate


Some asshat ran a Honduras plate

I'll add a couple.





And if your bike should need any work, don't worry. They will have a shop.



... and, an infirmary for those injured, or fatigued.
